Can you advise on how to fix a leaking unit?

I would check for a hairline crack. If there is one around the union, a replacement tank will be required unless you are good with epoxy.

Hi have a vicks warm

The easiest ans simplest way to clean it, is too mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar & Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank) and fill the the tank with the solution. Allow it to set for 30 minutes, then turn the unit ON. Allow it to run, until the tank is half empty. Pour out the remaining solution and fill with the Bottled Distilled Water Turn the unit ON and run until the tank is almost empty. Following these instruction will remove all the lime and calcium build up in the unit.

Tip: Using bottled Distilled Water rather than Tap Water, will totally eliminate calcium and lime buildup.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Humidifier leaves film everywhere!

I talked to Kaz, a manufacturer of humidifiers, and they said this is referred to as "white dust". It's simply the minerals from your water settling on your furniture...I had to same problem so I called the manufacturer.

He said it's not dangerous but that I should use distilled water in my humidifier from now on since my water will always do that. He also stressed the importance of cleaning the unit weekly with a bleach and vinegar solution per the manufacturers specs.

Switched on Resmed H5i S9 Autoset CPAP machine and shows error check power supply is plugged in

That unit is specialized and proprietary and you will not find any information to service it yourself. Since it is licensed and considered medically regulated, you must return it to the manufacturer for repair

Kenmore Humidifier 758.15420011. The CF (Change Filter) light won't stop flashing even after I install new filters

I have a HoMedics UHE-CM65 humidifier. The misting seems to randomly stop and start. IS this normal? Does it somehow sense the room humidity and shut the misting off until it is needed again?

Yes, most have a Humidistat which senses the moisture in the air and cuts in and out as needed. This sort of says that it does. Runtime is calculated based on using cool water and setting the mist level between the low and medium settings. Based on the natural humidity level in your home, the temperature of water you use, and the mist level setting you choose, you may experience longer or shorter run times.

Why does my humidifier make the floor all wet

You may be over filling the unit. Take the refillable water tank out and with the power removed try to remove all the extra water where the tank goes. check for anything that looks cracked inside the unit the best you can. If the tank is seating properly it should not leak. If it is filled properly it should not leak.

Wait5000 humidifier problem

How it is wired makes a difference and we dont know if it has its own transformer or it's taking power from the air handler or the furnace transformer / control board.

The Hygrometer on my Air-O-Swiss U7142 reads 25%

I have got the same problem with my u7142 unit. This most probably means that the hygrostat inside is either broken or it has been heavily covered with the "white dust" in case the demineralization cartridge has not been changed for a long while. To resolve it you have two options: either clean the humidity sensor or replace it. The sensor is at the bottom of the front panel, so you need to disassemble the front panel only, no need to open the whole unit (note that there are 2 screws at the bottom holding the front panel also). You need to get the sensor out from the printed circuit to open the cover and clean the surface of the sensor with something (blowing air does not help; you need physically touch the surface with something). If it does not help then you can go for the second option to replace the sensor, the type used in the unit is SYH-1. It is not a pricy element so you may go straight to the replacement if you find a shop nearby to buy it. I have simply replaced the sensor and now the unit is showing the proper humidity value and adjusting the steam automatically again.
