Weekly Cleaning & Care
WARNING: Before cleaning always turn power off and unplug the unit from outlet.
WARNING: DO NOT rinse Base under faucet. To clean, wipe the Base with a paper towel.
WARNING: DO NOT use any solvents or aggressive cleaning agents. Keep water away
from the Air Outlet.
WARNING: DO NOT tamper with the Water Sensor.
About White Dust -Use of high-mineral content water may cause a white mineral residue to
accumulate on room surfaces near the humidifier. The mineral residue is commonly referred to as
“White Dust”. The higher the mineral content (the harder your water is), the greater the potential for
White Dust. The White Dust is not caused by a defect in the humidifier, but is due only to minerals
suspended in the water from your tap.
WARNING: If you have hard tap water STOP using tap
water and use ONLY filtered, distilled, cold boiled or bottled water to minimize the White Dust
residue.
Tank Cleaning - Remove the Rotating Mist Nozzle from the top of the Water Tank then remove the
Water Tank from the unit. Turn the tank upside down, unscrew the Tank Cap and drain any water
from the tank. Wipe the tank with a soft damp cloth then
rinse it with warm water inside and out.
Base Cleaning - Gently wipe the Base with a
soft damp cloth.
White Dust Cleaning - If mineral deposits
“White Dust” are evident around the Ultrasonic
Nebulizer and Water Sensor, clean these surfaces
with a soft cloth and a small amount of undiluted
white vinegar. If necessary, mix a solution of 50%
white vinegar and 50% water and fill the Base with
enough solution to cover the Ultrasonic Nebulizer (a).
Allow it to soak for an hour and then use the provided
brush to gently loosen buildup on the
Ultrasonic Nebulizer (b). Put 1 cup of water in the
Base and wipe clean with a soft cloth.
WARNING: DO NOT rinse Base under faucet.
Ceramic Water Filter Cleaning - Remove the
Water Tank from the humidifier Base. Remove the
Tank Cap (c) and rinse Ceramic Filter thoroughly with
tap water (d), then replace on Water Tank.
