Using Your Vicks Cool Mist Humidifier

First Time Use

Read all instructions before using this appliance. With proper care and maintenance,
the humidifier should be able to provide at least 18 hours operation per filling.

Unpack and remove all packing material from the Water Tank and Base. Completely unravel
power cord and place unit on a flat, stable surface at least 5 inches away from walls and heat
sources. Do not use product if cord has been damaged. Place cord out of the way where it
cannot be pulled or stepped on. Follow the directions below to fill and operate the Humidifier.

Filling the Water Tank

Always UNPLUG the humidifier before filling.


Remove the Water Tank from the Base and turn it upside down. Turn the Tank Cap
counterclockwise to open.


Fill the Water Tank with clean, cool, tap water and replace the Tank Cap by firmly turning
clockwise. Turn the tank upright and check Tank Cap for leaks. If any water drips from
Tank Cap, remove it and re-tighten. Make sure the circular rub cap Gasket (o-Ring) is in
place when replacing Tank Cap — this prevents water leakage.


Carry Water Tank using one hand on the handle and one on the bottom of the Tank.


Be sure the Water Tray and Wicking Filter are in place.


Replace the Water Tank on the Base by aligning the Tank Cap into the Water Tray.


Do not use hot water, which may damage the wick.

Do not add any medication or other additives to the water.

Do not pour any water into the outlet.
