I have a HM5081TG Humidifier, which has an automatic shut off feature. When the humidifier is empty the reset light is illuminated, and the humidifier automatically shuts off. I have refilled the humidifier following an automatic shut-off; however, the reset light turns on every time I turn on the humidifier and the humidifier will not work (i.e. heat the water and humidify the room). The reset light just remains on every time I turn on the humidifier and nothing happens. What can I do?
I'm sure you've read the instructions, but in case you've misplaced or forgot them, to reset the "reset" you have to unplug the humidifier for 5 minutes. The steps are:
1. Turn knob to "reset."
2. Unplug the unit.
3. Refill and replace tank on unit.
4. Wait 5 minutes.
5. Plug unit in and turn knob to "high."
If that doesn't turn the reset light out, re-do all 5 steps.
Hope this helps.

Its probably the cleaning light that comes on periodically to remind you to clean the unit. Shut off the unit AND when you do so hold down the power button for several seconds until the flashing red light shuts off. The cleaning light should stay off until the next cleaning is due.
Per the Air-O-Swiss FAQ:
Q: Cleaning light is flashing (AOS U650, AOS 7135, AOS 7142, AOS 7144, AOS 7147)
A: Switch the unit OFF and unplug it. Empty the water in the base. Rinse the base with hot/clean water. Do not submerge the base! Visually inspect the base for dirt or mineral build up. If soft water is used decalcifying the unit every 4 weeks with EZ Cal is suggested. If hard water is used the unit should be decalcified every 2 weeks. Do not forget to reset the clean light after resetting the unit.
Q: Reset cleaning light (AOS U650, AOS 7135, AOS 7142, AOS 7144, AOS 7147)
A: The cleaning light does not automatically reset. Hold down the power button (button A in instruction manual) until the light stops flashing. The light automatically comes on approximately 14 days after plugging in the unit.
The humidifier has a float valve in it much like a toilet tank does. If the water gets to low, the float valve should allow more water to enter the tank automatically. When it reaches the proper level, the float valve stops the water. The water line (either copper or plastic) coming into the humidifier should have a shutoff valve on it. Make sure that it is turned on.
Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out. did you hit the reset

Gererally according to the booklet in the box. If you no longer have those instructions, simply clean out the basin, make sure no mold, dust, hardwater or calcium is deposited. Use a 10% bleach water solution to kill bacteria, and thats is basically it. Just dont miss any spots, but humdifiers should be cleaned every few uses.
Per the operators manual you have to reset it.
1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove and refill the water tank, being sure to follow the Daily
Maintenance Instructions. Replace the tank onto the base.
3. Wait 5 minutes for the Automatic Shut-Off to reset.
4. After the 5 minutes, plug in the unit and turn the unit on to HIGH
(HI). The RESET light should now be off (if not repeat steps 1 through
3). In about 2-3 minutes, the humidifier will begin to produce
My Slant Fin humidifier has a floating, ring-shaped magnetic level that isn't replaceable. You can't even tell it's magnetic until you cut off the piece that prevents the white plastic float from rising past a certain point. It turns out that there is a ring-shaped magnet in the float.
I found that the Refill light would go off when I held a strong magnet near the float device.
So, I have suspended the magnet with string from the top of the humidifier outside the humidifier.
Caution: This fix disables the safety feature inherent in the low level shut off. I wonder why the manufacturer uses material that corrodes?
