It can be a pain in the ****! You have to take the long handle peice,clip it back to the front of the humidifier,right to the right front of the unit top corner you should see a spot that is where you clip that handle to,it goes on a certain way,I learned by trail and error to make it work.Then you must put the float in the circle holder there is a hole in the top of the lid where the float sticks into,you have to hold the float into that hole and make sure it stays in there or it wont work.I wish I had a picture to show you sorry best I could do.

My vicks 1.5 vaporizer doesnt put out steam after using 5 times, flaky brown/grey things are in water , why? cant it be fixed


Is it limed up?-- in other words, the Hardness (Lime and Calcium) in your tap water has clogged up the heating coil..) Possibly the little grey things floating in the water, could be the residue from the water, left behind in the process of evaporation.
If this is the case-- gently heating and flushing Vinegar water thru the heating section of the Vaporizer, might be necessary every few times,- if your water is that 'hard'!

My air-o-swiss 7142 humidifier keeps giving me the empty indicator light to signify no water in the unit even though the base and the tank are full. If I try to reset it comes on for seconds and then shuts...


The water sensor is a float in the mister area of the base. The float is off in one corner with a little plastic barrier around it and translucent cap over it. Make sure the float can more freely. If the float can move up and down but the light stays on, the reed switch (a switch controlled by a magnet built into the float) inside the unit might have been knocked loose, damaged or disconnected. The switch is actually inside the post that the float slides on, but it can only be accessed from the underside - inside the unit.

Faulty water level indicator


It is the reed switch inside the post that the float runs on, it gets corroded and needs to be replaced. It is an easy and cheep fix if you can get the reed switch. I would also suggest adding silicone as the factory seal is poor before you put it back together.

WATER LEVEL FLOAT DEVICE PREVENTS UNIT FROM TURNING ON,EVEN THOUGH WATER TANK IS FULL. REMOVED SOME FILTER MATERIAL WITH NO EFFECT. FLOAT IS FREE WITH NO RESTRICTION.


These hints are from the air o swiss webpage.
Q: No mist / unit is not working / empty indicator keeps flashing
A: Fill up the water tank. Check if water is flowing through the demineralization cartridge (attached to the water tank cap). If the water tank is full but there is only little water in the base it indicates that the water is now flowing through the demineralization cartridge.

  • Wait for 15 minutes to allow the mist to come out of the unit.
  • If the unit is not working and the empty light is not flashing you might have set the desired humidity too low and the current humidity level in the room is higher. That is why the unit switches off automatically.
  • If the empty indicator continues flashing and the tank is full, water is not flowing through the cartridge. Exchange the cartridge or the granules in the cartridge after 2-3 months, in areas with hard water exchange the cartridge after 1 -2 months. However, the demineralization cartridge and or the granules must be exchanged at the latest after 6 months or the unit does not reach its full performance.
If the granules are new, see the following instructions:

  • Make sure the cartridge and/or granules were soaked for 24 hours, water takes longer to filter through dry granules in cartridge and into the base. Next, remove 2 tablespoons of granules from the cartridge, and throw them away. Too many granules in the cartridge it does not allow water to flow from the tank to the base.
If your issue is with the float and not the mister, then you have to make sure the float is tripping the micro switch that turns the machine on. Some units the filter will not allow the float to hit the switch if the filter is not installed correctly. If everything is in correctly and the float is tripping the switch, then the micro switch must be faulty.

Kenmore Humidifier not operating?


Turn the unit off, lift the fan assembly off the base, and push the connector together that goes to the float switch on the bottom of the fan motor. If you hold the switch in with your finger (careful not to get into the fan blades) and turn the unit on, the F indication should go away. F (as in Fill), apparently, means the base has no water. The plastic tube that sticks up out of the base floats on the water and pushes the switch. Put it back together, it should work!

Very little water left/ fills up and leaks


**With the unit unplugged**
the float sensor is probably getting sticky with residue and buildup (lime, grime, etc). Try cleaning the little float and that area. It should move easily when clean.

Honeywell HE440A steam power humidifier


Honeywell has had lots of problems with this humidifier. They are coming out with a completely redesigned steam humidifier that will be available in a month or two. If you know who installed it (through equipment stickers and such) you can probably get them to swap your old trouble prone unit for the new design for just the labor. If they won't, then push them to talk with their Honeywell distributor about it.

The problem is most likely a stuck float in the humidifier. There are two floats that run up and down. One that tells it when to add water, and one that is a safety. They both tend to get stuck with mineral deposits.

You can fix it by unplugging the humidifier, turning off the water, draining the pan (unscrew the drain on the bottom a few turns), disconnecting the water lines and wires (2 molded plugs and 2 screw terminals-don't worry about if they get swapped). There should be a couple of screws that lock it into the ductwork such that when you remove the screws you can pull the whole unit out to see inside the water tank. Then just clean everything out well and put it back together in the same order.

You really do want Honeywell to get you a new humidifier though.
