I want to clean the white gritty minerals from the fly wheel inside the humidifier. I took the three screws out but the plastic wheel will not move. I'm afraid to force it...might crack or break.

    Ditto. I took the screws out, but the wheel won't come off. Are there instructions to disassembling the casing to clean the fly wheel and innards?

Where can i get a new water tank cap for vicks model V745A?


This is a POSSIBLE answer: I found the manual at the Vicks site, read through it, but it did not mention replacement parts at all. However, at the very end of the manual was this paragraph, which might serve as a way for you to get what you need. Quoting the manual:

If you have any questions or comments, call the Kaz Consumer Service Department at 1-800-VAPOR-1-2 or, e-mail consumerservice@kaz.com or, write to Kaz, Consumer Service
Department, P.O. Box 544, Hudson, NY 12534, explaining just how the product is operating. Specify model number. Our Consumer Service Representative will advise you how to correct the problem yourself, or will ask you to return the product for repair or replacement.

Honeywell quietcare humidifier won't turn on


I am surprised that this answer isn't found anywhere, including in the manual from Kaz. If yours is the same version as mine, and your lights aren't even lighting up on top, most likely your float may have gotten bound up with gunk (the float rises up when the pan is full enough of water, which enables the motor to run. It is held into place by a plastic bracket with two phillips head screws, and looks a bit like a plastic bottle with a narrow neck in a small rectangular shape (not open at top). Remove the screws and the bracket, and take out the float and clean it and the reservoir (in the base) it sits in. Reinstall, and the float should move freely. Problem solved!

Kaz 2100 Warm Steam Vaporizer was stored empty for about an year. Today I filled it with water, plugged it in, waited and waited...... no results. Wouldn't start. There is no buttons to push, nothing to...


Chances are the rubber pump inside the unit cracked and will not work anymore. This type of unit is a "Disposable" unit and is not intended for repairs. Its cheaper to buy a new one then buy parts for this.
Hope it helps.

How do I clean my humidifier?


I had the same problem. This will cause the orange reset light to turn on as well. You need to remove the reservoir and the cooling chanber. Under the reservoir there is a locking mechanism that you push to the side. You then pull off the cooling tower. Then you push the locking mechanism in the other direction and remove the steam mechanism. I found a month of build up of "gook" inside. Dump it out and use a scrouring pad to remove it. After this was done, I could smell the vapor from the medicine cup again and it ran all night on the high setting again.

Humidifier leaves a crusty dark substance in water


SPECIAL NOTES
Discoloration/Black Particles
After use, the water residue in the bottom of the container may contain black particles, and, in
some areas the water and the bottom of container may discolor. These conditions are normal and
do not effect the purity of the steam or medicine. The container is easily cleaned with soap and
water. Rinse and dry the container after cleaning.

This was taken from the manual that comes with the humidifier...
