Question about Vicks Warm Steam Vaporizer 1.5 Gallon Humidifier
I filled up my vaporizer, added 4 pinches of salt and 1 tablespoon of Vicks Vapo Steam liquid medication. Slowly dropped the blue part of the unit into the water. I turned the unit on and now it is making a constant spitting/static sound. Any ideas why?
No salt, unless you had 0 steam - to stop water spit, throughly clean the water tank, just as clean as new. It will work like new if the tank is as clean as new! I dont know where the small particles of dirt come from, but trust me, I just went thru this with mine, it's got dirt in it!

The gunk is in your water - you have hard water. As hoosierbuy said, don't add salt -- that is only needed if your water is too soft.

You need to clean it, the minerals in your water can cause a build up. Empty all water and any debris remaining in the bottom of the vessel. Fill with distilled vinegar, allow to set for 10 minutes and then run the vaporizer for 5 minutes. Flush water through you unit to remove any loosened buildup, and fill with distilled water instead of tap water. If you still have issues, take it back to the store for a refund.
