Question about Vicks V150SG 1 Gallon Humidifier
The vaporiser is "spitting" out water, instead of a steady steam.now what ?
If spitting, the resevoir is too full.

I had this same problem! It's not because the tank is too full. I never overfilled mine, but I had the same spitting problem. I realized it was because I had added too much salt. I tried it once with no salt, but it never did anything. Literally was plugged in for 12 hours, and nothing happened. So I added just a PINCH of salt, and it works perfectly now. It's also not because you haven't cleaned it.....Literally just too much salt.

I'm upset. Mine is 2 days old and my son is sick and I don't have time for this stupid thing to be sputtering hot water all over the nursery. I should not have to clean it after ONE USAGE!!! I feel furious about it.

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 :)
