Is there distilled water or liquid medication in the container? If not, all that will come out is air. There should be an adjustment valve on the hand-held part of the nebulizer, that adjusts the liquid flow and turns it into a mist.

A white dust is comming from my cool mist humidifier, is is dangerous to breathe?


Its probably just from the minerals in your water. If so you should be fine although it does make a bit of a mess around the house. If the white dust bothers you, fill your Hankscraft 240 with distillers water rather than tap water and the problem will go away.

What is proper procedure for running vinegar through my Hankscraft cool mist humidified?


Not sure why you would want to. Vinegar is typically used to remove calcium scale that remains after a heating element or electrodes boil off water. The Hankscraft 240 doesn't boil the water off. All the minerals in the water go out the spout with the mist.

I got the Crane Cool Mist humidifier - drop shape in blue. Although i can feel a small amount of air coming out from the spout, mist is not visible, not a bit.


if you can hear the fun noise, you need to check major circuit, should be bad capacitor. if no noise at all, replace the fun.
actually they have very good customer service. just contact by email or phone, tell them what's happened, they should give you a RMA number, put the tank cap and cut small piece of power cable, send to them, you will receive a brand new humidifier within couple weeks. even your machine slightly out of warranty.

Why does my humidifiers does not have any smoke coming out?


My Guess is that the reletive humidity in the room is not low enough to see any vapors coming from the machine. Normaly you won't see these anyway. Some models in the stores seem to make more mist than what you get at home. If the humididty level in a room is close to what is coming out of the machine there will be no signs of any mist coming out. Just make sure the filters are clean and check and make sure the water level is going down on the machine and this will tell you its workin. the faster you are using the water in the tank the more you are putting in the air! If this is a hot mist machine then I would say the heating element in the machine is not working.

Vapor is not coming for sunbeam humidifier model 686


from all the information that i have come across. the unit is a cool mist. the vapor won't be apparent for the coolmist. now if it was a warm mist there is something internal that isn't making it cause any vapor. but if you done all the normal troubleshooting and nothing still and it has a filter it will more likely be a cool mist. warm mists don't have filters

Humidifier blows out dust


As the previous poster said, it's probably a problem with your water.

Are you using tap water or bottled mineral water? If so, there are minerals which get nebulized along with the water, and leaves a white, dusty, residue. I fill my Crane Pig humidifier with DISTILLED water, which is pretty pure. Make sure that the water is DISTILLED ONLY, since some of the water companies distill the water and then add minerals back in (they almost got me here until I noticed the label that said "with minerals added"). The reason this is important is because during the distilling process, the water is boiled, evaporated, and then the vapor is condensed back to liquid. This removes any impurities or dissolved minerals from the water. You can see Wikipedia for more on this topic here.

Additionally, I use both the Crane Demineralization Filter Cartridge (which works for the penguin as well, and gets installed in place of the original water tank cap), and the ProTec PC-1 Humidifier Tank Cleaning Cartridge (which I plop into the water tank) to keep the water both de-mineralized and bacteria free. I got both products at Amazon.com.

With these 3 things, so far I haven't had any white dust residue, and the mist feels fresh and clean.

On a side note, by using distilled water, you also prevent any mineralization from building up on the nebulizer or water level sensor, which can cause the humidifier to eventually stop producing mist...
