It should be rated at 120 volts ac. The wattage will be molded into the bottom of the unit (on the underside).

If it instead shows the current in amperes, multiply the amperage shown by 120 volts to obtain wattage. I.E. if for example the appliance it is rated at 8.3 amps, take 8.3 x 120 = 996 watts

Depends on whether they are on the same circuit or not. Most small air conditioners draw enough power that they need to be on their own circuit. And it's best if a steam humidifier is the only appliance on it's own circuit.
If they are on separate circuits, it they should be fine. If they share the same circuit, look at the amperage of both (as shown on the appliance listing label, add them up. They must NOT exceed 12 amperes for a 15 amp circuit, 16 amperes for a 20 amp appliance circuit.
If either one is listed in watts, just take the wattage listed and divide by 120, which is the wall voltage and you will have the amperage. On air conditioners you are looking for the total wattage, NOT the locked rotor (LRR) or motor amps ratings.
Very small window air conditioners can usually share a circuit, if the amperage draw of other appliances is small enough. I doubt that it would work in this case, if you try it the worst that can happen is it will blow the circuit breaker or fuse. This will happen (usually) after a period of time for a circuit breaker or when starting for a fuse.

Problems in a Vicks Vaporizer comes when it is mis-handled or when we buy non-warranted products. It is the best solution to spend money on the branded and cheap vaporizers.

In the bottom of the humidifier is a little disk that vibrates to turn water to vapor. This gets covered in mineral deposits and won't vibrate properly. They usually suggest something like vinegar to clean it. I found that this didn't work for me. What did work was cleaning it with my Waterpic on the highest setting. It chipped away the deposits and allowed it to work. HOWEVER, once you get it running again, buy the slant fin mineral absorption pads to keep it running. If you have mineral-rich water like me, you'll go through them quickly, but you also won't have white deposits on your walls anymore.
