    How do I get the white build up off of the heating element?  Did vicks think of this when designing it?  The inhalant over fills from the steam and gets onto the element.  It WONT come off!

    What about the Water Tank itself. Does the whole white lid come off? I can't seem to get it off and I don't want to break it. and there's no way I can fit anything thru the cap to try and clean the mineral buildup off the tank. It used to be so pretty and clear.

You have to scrap it off and work at it if its real bad , I think the reason is because we are using tap water we should be using bottled purified water.

I used to see mist coming out of the humidifer. Just set up for this year, changed the filter, etc. and there's no mist coming out. Is this ok?


No you probably have scale around the heater thus not heating the water warm eneough. The water trough is located in the bottom of the unit and it gets covered with scale you can sometimes crumble it off with your fingers. Sometimes you have to use a cleaner on them too. Me personally on mine I clean it with a flat blade. I have cleaned mine twice this year as I have hard water

I added water and the vicks medicine and no steam


medication was never meant to go into a humidifier. it clogs the transducer. if you can clean the vicks off the transducer plate you might squeeze another season out of it, otherwise by adding medication to the machine you just gave it an early death.

New filter,still no mist and water level does not drop


make sure that the filter is VERY snug into the bottom of the humidifier, and that the tank is on correctly. We had the same problem :)
