SOURCE: Humidifier makes a huge noise and no mist

According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.

This next part may or may not be relevant.
Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

Barring that, here is the service center contact info:

SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: humidifier filled with water, but red light is on

If you overfill it, the red light goes on. just dump a little out and it should go green. Worked with my crane duck humidifier. Hope it helps

It's not unusual, to not be able to see the mist. It's a very fine mist. If you can feel it coming out, it's there.

SOURCE: i just bought crane drop

Unfortunately, plugging a 110 volt appliance into a 240 volt source fries the motor, so buying a water basin is not going to help. Even if the heater element did not break, the higher voltage would have taken out the thermostat and probably other items.

You could replace the water basin, then the thermostat, then the element, but by the time you replaced att that, it would cost you more than replacing the unit with a 220V humidifier.

I don't like to be the bearer of bad knews, but I also have to give you the best advice (at least in my opinion) that I can.

Lights on but no fan, no mist


"Take the humidistat out of the humidifier and look for the 3 slits below the restart button, take a hair dryer and send some warm air into those slits for 5 minutes. That usually recalibrates the humidifier."

HOw do I clean the cool mist humidifier?


If there is a lot of scale and mineral deposits , you can run a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and water thru it, by half filling the tank with the solution. When it's almost empty, turn it off, empty the remainder of the solution and flush the system with clear water. In the future I recommend that your use bottled Distilled Water, instead of tap water.

There is not mist coming out. What should I do??


The moisture released by this (or any ultrasonic) humidifier should not be visible, so it is very possible that it is working correctly. Try filling the reservoir and marking the water level with a small piece of tape. Then run the humidifier for a few hours, and check the water level again. If the water level is below the edge of the tape, then you know it is releasing moisture into the air, and everything is working fine.

The older style of humidifiers created a mist by spinning a disk that was partly dipped into the water reservoir. They had to be refilled often, and the mist could leave water spots or dust on nearby furniture. The water level should change very slowly in your ultrasonic humidIfier compared to a misting humidifier.

Hello...i have a sunbeam filter free warm mist humidifier,and i put the water in and turn it on but it doesn't seem to be working. All the lites are on but nothing and it's brand new too never been used.


Hi, have you given it a while? That humidifier usually takes about 10 minutes to get going. After 10 minutes or so you should be able to feel the warm mist coming out, and soon after you should feel a difference in the moisture in the air.

Honeywell HCM-305T Spits droplets rather than creating a mist.


Thanks for your question,
Sounds to me like you have something partially cloging the misting nozzle, if you can take the nozzle off, and check it I would bet there is something that got in there, if you cant, it might be better to just return the Humidifier where purchased for an exchange, if you can get the nozzle off, if you have a can of compressed air like they sell for dusting off computers, I would use a very short burst of that in the nozzle, and in the feed line, thanks again for your question, let me know how it works out,

The humidifier doesn't make enough vapor


Soak it with vinegar for several hours then use a soft nylon bristled brush to scrape off the minerlized crust and rinse. You probably need to replace the silver stick & mineralization cartridge more often.
