B. Vaporizer operates too fast, fuse blows:
If no replacement part can be provided, we will replace your Vaporizer.
Overboiling, flickering lights, blown fuse or heavy steam flow generally indicates one of the following causes:
1. Too much salt was added to the water. To correct the condition:
I. Disconnect the vaporizer from the electrical outlet and allow to cool.
II. Pour out the water and rinse the tank. Rinse steam unit as described in weekly maintenance under
“Cleaning and Storage”. Refill with fresh water but do not add salt. If vaporizer now does not
operate or steams too slowly, follow the instructions in “Initial Setup and Operation”.
2. You live in a “hard water” area and minerals in the tap water are causing the vaporizer to steam too
rapidly. To correct the condition:
I. Disconnect the vaporizer from the electrical outlet and allow to cool.
II. Remove steam unit allowing hot water to first dribble out, then pour out water and rinse the tank.
Rinse steam unit as described in the weekly maintenance section. Refill with fresh water but do not
add salt.
III. If unit still steams too rapidly, use 1/2 distilled water and 1/2 tap water.
C. Vaporizer is making crackling / buzzing / humming sounds or water container is
unusually hot:
1. You may have added too much salt. See section B above.
2. You may live in a “hard water” area. See section B above.
3. This condition can happen when the water level in the tank is low. Disconnect the vaporizer from the
electrical outlet, allow to cool, remove steam unit allowing hot water to first dribble out. Fill the tank with
tap water to MAX water level marking.
4. This may be an indication your vaporizer needs cleaning. Refer to weekly maintenance under“Cleaning
and Storage”.

Warnings
For the most effective and safe use of Hunter’s Vaporizer, please Read and
Save these instructions! Especially those regarding adding salt.
• ALWAYS place this vaporizer on a firm, level, and water resistant surface. ALWAYS place the vaporizer at
least six (6) inches away from walls and heat sources such as stoves, radiators, or heaters.
• ALWAYS place the vaporizer in an area that is out of the reach of children especially infants or toddlers.
Supervision is necessary when the vaporizer is used near children, patients, or pets. Hunter realizes that
many customers use vaporizers in their homes with small children. Please take the time to instruct children
that the vaporizer is not a toy. Vaporizers produce steam that could cause serious burns.

Minimum Level
7. Plug the power cord into 110-120 Volts AC
outlet protected up to 15 Amps. The vaporizer
will produce a gentle flow of steam within a few
minutes.
8. If steaming does not start within ten minutes, unplug the steam unit and allow to cool.
• This product has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other) as a safety feature. This plug will
fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it
still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. DO NOT attempt to defeat or override this safety feature.
11. If steaming still does not start after another 10 minutes, add another
pinch or two of salt and mix thoroughly. Do not exceed 1/8 teaspon of
salt, about 4-5 pinches, as excessive boiling or a blown fuse could occur.
• ALWAYS UNPLUG the vaporizer when it is not in operation or while it is being emptied, filled or cleaned.
Note: Remember the amount of salt you added to start the unit steaming. You
will need to add the same amount each time the unit is refilled. Salt has no
effect on the purity of the steam or medication.
• DO NOT add medication of any type into the water in the container. Do not cover the steam outlet or place
anything over it while the vaporizer is operating. Never drop or insert any object into any opening.
• Never fill the humidifier tank with hot water. Always use clean, cool tap water.
