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.

SOURCE: Humidifier mist won't come out of tube

sounds like the small fan that is located in the base isn`t pushing the mist out. unplug it then take all the screws out of the base. there are screws under the black foam stands too. be careful not to touch anything that looks like live wires while you look inside then look inside while it is pluged in. it should turn. check for something blocking it like lint or dirt..you may be able to clean around the shaft with w d 40

SOURCE: sunbeam ultrasonic humidifier runs but produces no mist

It sounds very much like the transducer has failed. This is likely a crystal transducer and since they produce the agitation that should cause a mist, they are running continuously; not a good thing for something that is trying to shake iteslf apart all the time. These require input from a circuit that produces the fairly high level of power needed to drive the crystal so it could also be the source of the problem.
This isn't something an owner is able to diagnose unless they have some technical training.

SOURCE: humidifier is full of water

More than likely, the float valve in the top of the water collection bucket is broken or stuck in the DOWN position. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the bucket for it's holder and empty any water that's in it. Inspect the float valve to see if it moves freely. Jiggle the arm of the float valve to see if it moves up and down freely. If it doesn't then it's stuck or broken. Hopefully, it's only stuck, because in most cases, purchasing a replacement bucket with the float valve installed is your only option.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I turn the humidifier on l or ll. The light is grean but it is not releasing steam or anything. I don't hear a noise and the water level stays the same.


The humidifier may be clogged with a calcium scale build up. Especially, if you use well water or your municipal water supply has a high chemical content.

To solve this problem do the following. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Empty any water that is currently in the tank and fill it with the 50/50 solution. Allow at least one hour, before turning the unit ON. After turning it ON place you hand in front of the mist nozzle to see if any mist is being generated. If it's generating mist, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. Then turn the unit OFF, unplug it and empty the remaining solution. Refill with Bottled Distilled Water and run until the tank is empty.

If the unit did not produce mist after one hour of soaking, allow it to set over night and then follow the procedure above. Generally, an overnight soaking will do the trick. In the future, I recommend using Bottle Distilled Water rather than your tap water.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Model RCM-832. On/off switch works, blows air but no moisture seems to come out. I left it on for at least one day and the water level in the tank remained the same.


First check humid-stat setting make sure that the room is not above setting. Second check that float(water level) switch is being made. Hope that helps

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.

Fan works, but no mist and water isn't going away


Turn on furnace and urn up humidistst to call for it. Tube from solenid to the filter should have water running if water is up to the valve and solinoid is opening . It should be warm to your touch., Using an ohm meter you can sheck the coil it shuold have continuity.

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,
