My sunbeam humidifier model SUL 495 does not seem to be working right?


Is there a filter or strainer where the water is pulled up? if so clean it, also you can run some kind of decalcifying product through it like CLR, which is non toxic.

How and when do i clean the filter


I assume when you say FILTER-- you mean the wicking pad, right?
This is the pad that absorbs the water, and rotates into the path of the air stream- thus increasing the humidity in the room..

I just did a quick search on the internet, and I came across a review on this humidifier--- Here is what she says:

Usually we start running it in late October. It is December now and we have bought THREE pads already this year. One pad should last at least for the few months we use it each year.

If you are fussy, you might want to change it 2 or 3 times in a winter-- others might last thru the whole winter-- Obviously it will have less mold, and will evaporate better, the more often you change it.

Steam not released through spout but trapped


is the spout clogged? Try running vinegar through it, CLR is a good product, but may stay the plastic, if not eat it, so I recommend vinegar to clean the deposits that plug things up, it may smell a bit, but usually works. Once cleaned, use distilled water to keep it from happening again, or just clean regularly with vinegar.

The reason you can not run your humidifier while the blower is off, is because all the humidity would condense almost immediately and rot out your duct work. If you find that the humidity provided during the cycle of your furnace is inadequate, I would suggest purchasing a table top unit, and keep it in the room where you spend the most time. So, the answer to your question is no, you can not run a humidifier while your blower motor is off. Hope this helps.

How do I clean my hunter humidifier 33201? the filter blocks have white calcium? built up. I have sick kids and want it to be clean and running properly.


Soak the filters in a solution of 8 oz of white vinegar per gallon of water for about 20 minutes once per week and rinse well.

Better yet, do this once every 2 weeks, and on the off weeks soak the filters in a beach and water solution (rinse well) to keep the mold and bacteria growth from becoming a problem. I also add about a teaspoon of vinegar or a teaspoon of bleach (one or the other, not both at the same time) to the water when I fill the tank.

That helps keep the calcium scale from forming and it keeps the unit itself MUCH cleaner.

Sunbeam Ultrasonic Humidifier, model: 697-6


Located My Manual:
Hope this helps!

1. Remove tank from base. Turn upside down and unscrew filling cap. Fill tank with clean, cool, distilled, or tap water. Water temp should NEVER be too hot or too cold. Return tank to base and let sit for a few minutes. Be sure the filling cap of the tank is tightened firmly.

2. Plug power cord into a 110-120V AC wall outlet only. Turn power switch to "on" position. Power light will illuminate. Turn mist nozzle until desired level is being released. Aim nozzle away from furniture and walls.

3. Always turn humidifier off when water runs* out. Unit will continue to operate when tank is empty.
*Humidifier will run up to 12 hrs on low; 6 hrs on high.

DO NOT LET WATER SIT IN TANK FOR LONG. THIS CAN ENCOURAGE BACTERIAL GROWTH.
Place unit on level surface away from direct sunlight.
DO NOT ADD MEDICATION OF ANY TYPE INTO THE NOZZLE, BASE, OR WATER TANK.
ALWAYS LEAVE ROOM DOOR PARTLY OPEN. DO NOT MOVE, TILT, OR EMPTY WHILE OPERATING.

Mild bleach and water solution for cleaning, never detergent.
Clean every 3rd day during use. Clean after long storage
Humidity varies from room to room. Aim for 30 - 50% relative humidity. If windows/ walls fog or frost, reduce mist intensity. If room too humid, ventilate by opening door or window; adjust mist intensity.

Cleaning


I also need some information on cleaning, specifically the base. Not sure if I should use soap or if that will affect the nebulizer?
For cleaning the reservoir, just add a capfull of bleach to some water, and swish it around intermittently for about 20 minutes -- rinse until you don't smell bleach anymore.

Humidifier leaves film everywhere!


I talked to Kaz, a manufacturer of humidifiers, and they said this is referred to as "white dust". It's simply the minerals from your water settling on your furniture...I had to same problem so I called the manufacturer.

He said it's not dangerous but that I should use distilled water in my humidifier from now on since my water will always do that. He also stressed the importance of cleaning the unit weekly with a bleach and vinegar solution per the manufacturers specs.
