Working, but not blowing mist.
I think I found the problem.
unplug humidifer, remove top tank, empty all water out of base. dry off.
turn unit upside down.
unscrew five visible screws.
use a screw driver to pull off the black foam foot pads. you will find more screws there.
pull off the base.
look next to the fan, you will see a metal "tower" going up into the reservoir. Is it dirty such as white chalky substance on it? Clean it with cotton swabs. Clean the fan while your at it if needed.
You will see a small gray box with two metal tabs twisted. Untwist them and pull off the top.
On that metal "tower" you will see a small black chip connected to the circuit board where you just removed the metal top. Does black chip have black marks on the circuit board? Mine does. I suspect the "tower" which draws heat from this black chip was no longer able to cool because of the white chalk buildup on the tower, furthermore, the chip became too hot and caused the black chip to overheat (again black marks on the circuit board).
The chip has on it "FTR 02N" and a "54F" at the bottom. I tried doing some basic searching on internet to see if it could be replaced, but didn't find anything.
For those who don't have this problem yet, just keep that metal cooling tower clean.
We have a Sunbeam Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier
I have this same problem. And cool mist humidifiers DO produce mist. I have had my humidifier for a while now (6 years) and have never had any problems. But after the most recent cleaning, it worked at first, but now seems to not be working anymore... Am also wondering if there is anything I can do to remedy the situation?
How do I clean/sanitize my humidifier?
A solution of water and white vinegar will remove the mineral deposits built up from the water. Rinse "very" good, then wash out with a solution of 1 part bleach and 3 parts warm water.
Sunbeam sul2512 humidifier leaking.
The Sunbeam SUL2512 Humidifier has three parts. From the top down:
If the cap of the water tank (which contains a float valve) does not seal you may get excessive flow into the base unit which provides a working reservoir.
The base unit contains all the electronics including the cool mist transducer. This is a silver disk with a black silicone seal surrounding it. This is the only other place a leak can develop.

How to clean the fan in sunbeam humidifier
Go to Walmart and get Canned Air used to blow out debris from keyboards etc. Place the air tube near the fan vents and blow out debris. Keep the can up-right. Should you turn it upside-down, you will FREEZE everything, so do it correctly.

Why does my Sunbeam humidifier turn on but not work?
If the water valve from the water container to the misting head is defective, contains particles, or fails to open; then no activity will occur. Clean the system with Vinegar solution and be certain to use distilled or filtered water in the future.
