Question about Vicks V3100 1.2 Gallon Humidifier

Open Question

I have a Vicks 1300 humidifier. It seemed to be working fine, but one day it stopped working ("fan" didn't go on). When I took off the tank, I discovered the tray inside had overflowed and there was water sitting in the bottom of the humidifier - and apparently flooded the engine? I dumped out the water, but it no longer works. I believe the earlier versions of the humidifier had a hole on the bottom of the humidifier - so although sometimes it leaked water onto my floor if I "moved" it and caused the tray inside to spill, it never flooded the inside of the humidifier. (still have my older one, still works!)

Vicks v4500 humidifier stopped working. Indicates that 'desired humidity reached' but it clearly hasn't been reached. Lights are functioning but humidifier does not operate.

Hello, I have the vicks v420 humidifier. The green light on top is on but nothing comes on. Help!



http://www.vicks.com/products/vaporizers

If you are having problems getting the vaporizer to work, just add salt to the water (seems so crazy simple but it works!). Also, make sure the removable column is tightly fixed inside; give it a few minutes and it should start to blow.

Depending upon your model, start at the above link and read the instructions. Just click "details" under the model in question.

I have a Cool Mist V3500 humidifier. The fan


TRY POURING IN SOME WHITE DISTILLED VINEGAR AND RUNNING IT. THE VINEGAR LOOSEN UP ANY SCALE AND JUNK. AFTER RUNNING UNIT FOR AWHILE, DRAIN OUT ANY REMAINING LIQUID AND ADD DISTILLED WATER OR FILTERED WATER. RUN UNIT AGAIN. THEN DRAIN OUT ANY LIQUID. NOW THE UNIT SHOULD WORK AS NORMAL. IN THE FUTURE, TRY USING DISTILLED WATER OR FILTERED WATER.

How do I put the vicks vaporub in the humidifier?


If you read the Vicks bottle it says not to heat the product. I'll quote the label:

"Do not heat. Never expose VapoRub to flame, microwave, or place in any container in which you are heating water. Such improper use may cause the mixture to splatter and result in burns."

Keep in mind, all of that in in bold as well.

No steam comes out


I just took mine apart and cleaned the scale off the heating elements. Filled to the level with hot water and it was steaming good in about 2 mins.
