Vicks v4500 humidifier stopped working. Indicates that 'desired humidity reached' but it clearly hasn't been reached. Lights are functioning but humidifier does not operate.


i know why. clean the small long tubular thing that is sucking the water. put a q tip in there and get the gunk out. thats what you need to do -- try it and let me know if it worked. msoobhawan@gmail.com it worked for me!

Hello, I have the vicks v420 humidifier. The green light on top is on but nothing comes on. Help!

If you are having problems getting the vaporizer to work, just add salt to the water (seems so crazy simple but it works!). Also, make sure the removable column is tightly fixed inside; give it a few minutes and it should start to blow.

Depending upon your model, start at the above link and read the instructions. Just click "details" under the model in question.

I added water and the vicks medicine and no steam


medication was never meant to go into a humidifier. it clogs the transducer. if you can clean the vicks off the transducer plate you might squeeze another season out of it, otherwise by adding medication to the machine you just gave it an early death.

Have you tried adding salt to the water in the vaporizer? Sometimes the water needs to minerals for the humidifier to work...I add sea salt to mine every time I fill it.

Vicks caporiser is spitting water instead of steam


Clean the unti - and do not add salt. I live in a major hard water city...and was amazed at how much dirt the tank collected. I tried adding salt to to stop the spitting, which did make a lot more steam, but did NOT stop teh water spit. I also noticed, with salt added, water in tank would only last 4-6 hours, not the 18-24 hours it should. I just figured it out, and now mine works great again, and does not spit. I cleaned the water tank throughly, several rinses, then wiped out entire inside. If you want it to work like new, you have to keep your tank as clean as new. I am going to start filtering my water that I put in with a double pantyhose I made simply so there no more dirt ~ a clean tank will fix the problem, it did mine :)

Water on floor around humidifier


I haven't had any problems with my Vicks Cool Mist Humidifier other than the fact that the area surrounding it is slightly wet after operating for a couple of hours....While I understand that I was using this to moisturize the air during a cold, I knew this would happen, because the air in my room is not dry. If the room isn't dry, the mist that it's putting out in to the air has no where to go but surround the humidifier. All I did to stop this was to buy a water proof mat. I suggest you do the same -- Also, in regards to the water smelling -- You should be cleaning out and drying the basin after every use. Water shouldn't smell unless you let it stagnate inside the plastic -- Try running distilled vinegar through the machine for a couple of minutes -- Also, I would use an extension cord and let it run outside so that your house doesnt smell like Vinegar.

Filling humidifier


On the Vicks v-3100 the water tank should lift off of the unit. Flip it over and there is a lid. Open the lid and fill the tank. Once you've filled it back up, put the lid back on. Flip the tank over to make sure there are no leaks, then put it back on the humidifier.

Note: It's very important to check to make sure the tank isn't leaking before you put it back on the humidifier, if it is, it will flood the reservoir, in turn causing water to leak out of the bottom of the humidifier (which is one of the major complaints about the 3100).
