There could be some dried fluid inside the tubes or medication chamber. Try cleaning the tubes really well even if they look clean and try cleaning the medication chamber with distilled water (better then tap water because it has been cleaned of all impurities), raise it out with warm distilled water (warm is better then cold to try to dislodge any dried medication), microwave the water to warm it up.
If that does not clean the medication chamber try boiling the medication chamber in a pot for 3 to 5 minutes in distilled water.
PS for the tubes use the warm distilled water.
I hope this helps you out!

Omron vibrating mesh nebulizer quit working


You must be having trouble with the battery. Also please keep the nebulizer properly cleaned as instructed on the pack. Check the connection properly or replace the batteries if needed. Also check out for more information about Omron Nebulizer on the web. It would help you a lot.

My ne u22v is not making mist


You should check if the battery is working fine. I don;t think Omron U2 nebulizer can have any other problem as it works really good for me. Also it is important to clean the Nebulizer properly and please check out the manual for more info. which you would have received while purchasing the Nebulizer.

My nebulizer has air coming out but no mist


The tube from the medicine is probably blocked. Generally needs factory service.

Sterlize my nebulizer


From Pari.com:
What is the best way to clean and disinfect my PARI Nebulizer?

Cleaning: After every treatment, thoroughly rinse the nebulizer to remove medication. Hand-wash with warm water and dish soap. Rinse thoroughly. OR... Wash in the dishwasher using a dishwasher basket on the top rack.

Disinfecting: (done after cleaning) every 2nd treatment day, mix a solution of 1 part distilled white vinegar and 3 parts warm tap water in a clean bowl. Soak the nebulizer parts (except the tubing and mask) for 60 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. OR... Mix a solution using Control III® Nebulizer Disinfectant and soak for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. OR... Boil the nebulizer parts for 10 minutes.

Vapour does not come out of Omron NEC28 nebulizer


You'll read a lot about making sure that the filter is clean and that the medicine cup is cleaned and that hard water can effect the operation of the nebulizer. However, the problem is most likely in the pump. Even though the pump is running, it is not pushing enough air into the medicine cup. You may even feel air coming out of the tube. When unrestricted, the air will come out, but, once restricted by the medicine cup, the air may not be fast enough to nebulize the liquid. If you want to confirm this, take the tube and hold it to the end of a bike pump, if, while pumpung, you successfully see mist, then you know for sure.

Fixing the pump is not too difficult. Over time, the chamber where the air is compressed becomes dry and, just like a dry bike pump, the air escapes from the chamber due to poor seals. The pump is pretty simple. Make sure it is unplugged from power and remove the screws holding the housing together. Inside you will see the motor, a fan, a power switch and the intake and outtake tubes. Follow the outtake tube to the pump. The junction where the tubes meet the pump is the location of the air chamber. You may need to remove the screws that secure the tubes to the chamber. Once apart, take some grease and lightly coat all of the interior surfaces of the chamber. When finished, reassemble and you're good to go!

Routine cleaning Mabis XP.


If your unit is the one pictured, he cup with the medication can be taken apart to be cleaned... the top unscrews and the nebulizer comes out....and should be done so after every use. Do not use house hold chemicals to clean the unit. Use a water/distilled vinegar mixture to clean, then rinse with clean water.

My solution in the nebulizer is not foaming or misting!


you may need to switch out your mask unit, the cup the medication is put into has a very tiny hole for air to circulate through. if that hole has been tampered with, or is partially clogged you will not get a mist. you should change out your mask and tubing regularily for sanitary reasons.
hope you get it running again!
