IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS HUMIDIFIER AND SAVE THESE
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR EASY REFERENCE.
WHEN USING ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
SHOULD BE FOLLOWED INCLUDING:
1. Always place this vaporizer on a firm, flat, and level surface, at least 4 feet
away from any person. It may not work properly on an uneven surface.
2. RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS–DO NOT TOUCH STEAM VAPOR-STEAM CAN
CAUSE BURNS. Place this vaporizer in an area where it is not accessible to
children. Never point the steam outlet directly toward any person.
3. Do not place the vaporizer near any heat sources such as stoves, radiators,
and heaters.
4. Before using the vaporizer, check the power cord for any signs of damage.
If the cord is found to be damaged,
DO NOT USE and return the vaporizer to Duracraft ® under the warranty agreement for repair. Never allow the power cord to be immersed in water or other
liquid.
5. This product is equipped with a polarized AC-line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one
way. This is a safety feature. NEVER connect the vaporizer to any power
source other than a 120V polarized outlet. If you are unable to insert the
plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit,
contact an electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. DO NOT defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.
6. Never plug in vaporizer without filling with water and always UNPLUG and
empty the vaporizer before moving, filling, cleaning, or storing. UNPLUG the
vaporizer before removing the electrode heating assembly.
7. RISK OF FIRE–NEVER add salt to the water. This can cause excessive boiling
and electrical overloading of your household electrical system.
8. DO NOT add vaporizer medicine directly into the water. Place in the medicine
cup and fill it halfway. DURACRAFT® assumes no responsibility for consequences resulting from the use of medications in this vaporizer.
9. Do not OVER-FILL the vaporizer. Doing so may result in electrical shock hazard.
10. This vaporizer requires regular cleaning. Refer to the CLEANING instructions
provided. Never clean the vaporizer in any manner other than as instructed in
this manual.
11. Turn the vaporizer to OFF if the relative humidity exceeds 60%, or if you notice
moisture on the inside of your windows. For proper humidity readings use a
hygrometer which is available in many hardware and department stores, or by
ordering on from Duracraft ® (see Care Products and Accessories).
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing a Duracraft® Baby’s Breath™
Vaporizer manufactured by Honeywell. If you would like
more information on our full line of products please visit our

MODEL DH-711, DH-712, DH-721 and DH-722
Your vaporizer is made up of two parts:
Steam
Assembly
Base
SET UP
NOTE: We recommend that the humidifier be disinfected prior to first use.
Please see CLEANING instructions.
• Select a firm, level, flat location — at least six inches (15 cm) from any wall
for proper air flow and convenient to an electrical outlet (Fig. 1).
Place vaporizer where it is out of the reach of children. Make sure cord is
not in an area where it can be tripped over or pulled on. Be sure that the
steam outlet is pointed away from any person.
• Place the vaporizer on a water-resistant surface, as water can damage
furniture and some flooring. Duracraft® will not accept responsibility for
property damage caused by water spillage.

FILLING
1. To remove the Steam Assembly, hold the Base and turn the Steam Assembly
counter-clockwise
then pull up.
2. Fill the Base with COOL tap water to the indent marked “Full Level” located on
the back of the unit (Fig. 2). DO NOT USE HOT WATER. Doing so may
damage the vaporizer.
3. Replace the Steam Assembly back onto the Base. Turn it clockwise
to lock in place. Once the Steam Assembly has been positioned, do not
attempt to move vaporizer. If it has to be moved, unplug it and empty the
Base first.
CAUTION: DO NOT PLUG IN THE HUMIDIFIER WITH WET HANDS AS AN
ELECTRIC SHOCK COULD OCCUR.
4. Plug the filled vaporizer into a polarized 120V outlet. DO NOT FORCE THE
POLARIZED PLUG INTO THE OUTLET; it will only fit one way.
OPERATION
IMPORTANT: When your vaporizer is plugged in, it is ON - however it will take
time (20-25 minutes) for the vaporizer to heat the water and produce steam.
The heating process is silent, so the vaporizer will not make any noise until
the water comes to a boil, at which time you may hear a gentle bubbling or
boiling sound.
1. If the Vaporizer does not start producing steam within 25 minutes…
Your water’s mineral content is too low to allow for electrical current flow and
the water will not come to a boil.
• Unplug and remove the Steam Assembly.
• Add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda per gallon of water (or 1 packet of
Duracraft’s DuraStart following the directions on the package) to help the
water come to a boil. Be sure to thoroughly mix the Baking Soda or
DuraStart with the water in the Base.
NOTE: Adding too much baking soda or DuraStart can cause boiling and/or
hot water spurting, which may cause burns.
2. If the Vaporizer boils excessively, spurts hot water or blows fuses…
Your water’s mineral content is too high.
• Make sure no chemicals have been added to the water. If any chemicals
were added, turn off and unplug the vaporizer. Empty Base and refill with
tap water only.
• If no chemicals have been added, turn off and unplug the vaporizer.
CLean per the cleaning instructions.
• Refill using 1/2 tap water and 1/2 distilled water, which will lower the
mineral content of your water and prevent excessive boiling.
• When you are finished using the vaporizer, unplug it and clean after
each use.
• ALWAYS be sure to discard any unused water in the base before storing
or refilling.
FEATURES
A U T O - S H U T O F F F E AT U R E :
• The vaporizer will shut off when the water level drops below the bottom of
the Steam Assembly.
• Refill the Base per the FILLING instructions.
• Once filled, the vaporizer will automatically turn back on.
MEDICINE CUP:
A medicated vapor can be distributed into the air by using the Medicine Cup at
the top of the Steam Assembly.
Fig. 3
Place Medicine Here
To add medicine to the Medicine Cup:
1. Unplug the vaporizer and allow at least 10 minutes for the unit to cool.
2. Carefully add liquid medication; fill cup only halfway (Fig. 3).
3. After use, clean any residue from the cup.
WARNING: DO NOT use any liquid medicine other than those specifically recommended for use with a steam vaporizer. DO NOT pour medicine directly
into the water as this may cause excessive boiling or spurting of hot water.
Honeywell assumes no responsibility for consequences resulting
from the uses of medication in this vaporizer.
CLEANING

paper towel or soft sponge. It is normal for mineral deposits to collect at the
bottom of the Base. Deposits may appear as black flecks and should be rinsed

TROUBLE SHOOTING
Q: I set up the vaporizer, but it isn’t making any noise. Is it working?
A: The heating process is silent, so the vaporizer will not make any noise until
the water comes to a boil (20-25 minutes), at which time you may hear a
bubbling or boiling sound.
Q: I used the vaporizer last night. When I went to refill it this morning, I
noticed black flecks in the base. Is this normal?
A: It is normal for mineral deposits to collect at the bottom of the Base. It may
appear as black flecks and should be rinsed out after every use. This is normal and will not affect the operation of the vaporizer if cleaned out daily.
Q: My vaporizer has been plugged in for 30 minutes and still is not
producing steam, what’s wrong?
A: It means that your water’s mineral content is too low to allow for electrical
current flow and the water will not come to a boil.
• Unplug and remove the Heating Assembly
• Add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda per gallon of water (or 1 packet of
Duracraft’s DuraStart following the directions on the package) to help the
water come to a boil. Be sure to thoroughly mix the Baking Soda or
DuraStart with the water in the Base.
Q: My vaporizer is over boiling and spurting hot water, what’s wrong?
A: It means that your water’s mineral content is too high.
• Make sure no chemicals have been added to the water. If any chemicals
were added, turn off and unplug the vaporizer. Empty the water tank and
refill with tap water only.
• If no chemicals have been added, turn off and unplug the vaporizer.
Clean per the cleaning instructions.
• Refill using 1/2 tap water and 1/2 distilled water, which lower the
mineral content of your water and prevent excessive boiling.
