Question about Vicks V150 Humidifier
My humidifier is spitting out hot water while giving out some steam and someone told me to clean it but I do not know how to clean it.
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 :)

Try soaking the heating unit in lime away or vinegar to remove lime deposits, if that doesn't help add a small amount of salt to the water.

use vinegar in water when steam drops then clean out water container. and use a small pinch of salt to let the two prongs in the plastic tube make better contact with each other it will steam very well.
