You have a short in there and that accounts for the tripping circuit breaker. If the insulation on the heating coil has gone that could be a good reason for the issue. Open it up and look for the short.

No salt, unless you had 0 steam - to stop water spit, throughly clean the water tank, just as clean as new. It will work like new if the tank is as clean as new! I dont know where the small particles of dirt come from, but trust me, I just went thru this with mine, it's got dirt in it!

I believe that you just have to add it with the water in the container. Here is a video detailing the product and its use.

the vapour oil medicine is put in the little reservoir right at the front top on the blue unit that sits on the plastic base... about a tablespoon. It will still be there after use, but it's only oil residue, after the medicine has evaporated with steam. clean it out with paper towel and refill for each use when needed. Only salt is added to the water, not the oil...

Humidifiers, depending on brand will spit out a little water as that is the Idea to get moisture into the air, but you can try not filing it so full, this one is steam so I would look into owners manual as to how to clean it , you may find that it has collected calcium deposits not allowing it to vaporize the water properly.

Clean the unti - and do not add salt. I live in a major hard water city...and was amazed at how much dirt the tank collected. I tried adding salt to to stop the spitting, which did make a lot more steam, but did NOT stop teh water spit. I also noticed, with salt added, water in tank would only last 4-6 hours, not the 18-24 hours it should. I just figured it out, and now mine works great again, and does not spit. I cleaned the water tank throughly, several rinses, then wiped out entire inside. If you want it to work like new, you have to keep your tank as clean as new. I am going to start filtering my water that I put in with a double pantyhose I made simply so there no more dirt ~ a clean tank will fix the problem, it did mine :)

Not much. Most people want to buy new medical equipment / environmental control equipment if the original price is under $50 or so. They fear a used piece will be dirty and transmit infection or, less severe but also disturbing, cigarette smoke smell or cat hair. Cleaning costs and time will consume the costs and doesn't justify the risk of buying used. Especially if they have no way to return it if it stops working (or never works).
