Question about Vicks Warm Steam Vaporizer 1.5 Gallon Humidifier
The question is why is it black? Is it mold or mildew? Has the unit every been cleaned and flushed regularly? If you answered NO, to the last question, that may be the problem. You can flush the system by using a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. After doing that, wash the interior of the water container with soap and water. Then run another flush cycle of Bottled Distilled Water. In the future, if this was the problem, use bottled distilled water only for humidifying purposes.
If the above was not the problem, there may possibly been some type of oil leak from the motor or one of the rubber gaskets is breaking down and polluting the water. Until you solve the problem, discontinue using the unit.
