No it does not leave white dust like that found with Ultrasonic units. Does not need a demineralization filter, although a pad is available. Water Softener is recommended if you have hard water.

The warm mist humidifiers do not produce the white dust. They send up essentially purified water into the air.

The down side is the minerals stay in the tank, and on the element, so it’s a good idea to use the Mineral Absorption Pads, HMP-12P.

No, however it does require Mineral absorption pads which are sold separately 43-5860 (HMP-12P).

Minerals from the water stay in the tank, and on the element, so it’s a good idea to use the Mineral Absorption Pads, HMP-12P.

The 2 sections should just come apart, one is inside the other. Look at the seem, you can see where it separates after the six screws are removed.

On the bottom of page 12 of the manual it states in block capitals:

"CAUTION: DO NOT OPEN THE POWER UNIT OR BASE YOURSELF. DOING SO MAY VOID YOUR WARRANTY AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE HUMIDIFIER OR PERSONAL INJURY."

Bottom line, not something you should attempt to do. Certainly not something I would do. If you want it fixed, you should get in touch with the manufacturer about how to ship it to them and have them fix it.

Does the warrenty cover broken Tank?

The warranty (on page 14 of the manual) is clear in that it does not cover defects that are the result of normal wear and tear. So if the tank brokecracked as a result of everyday use, whcih unfortunately, it is prone to do, the warranty doesn't cover this. It must be handled very gently.

You cannot purchase a new tank separately from Canadian Tire.

I contacted the manufacturer, Kaz, Inc, in January 2010 and received information by email on how to purchase a replacement tank directly from them. Unfortunately, due to the terms and conditions of this site, I cannot post theinformation here because it contains the manufacturer's contact information and the cost of the tank.

Please refer to page 12 of the manual for the manufacturer's contact information. I found that email was the best way to contact them.

In order to check the warranty for this product, you can go to www.kaz.com and click on the owner's manual for HWM-450. See page 13 for details of the warranty. You can also call 1-800-477-0457 for further details.

A new tank can only be ordered through the manufacturer's 1-800 number, above.

Question

The indicator lights do not respond to the output buttons when I turn the humidifier on. How do I reset this?

The output light on the left responds with 3 bars that won't change to 2 or 1b bar and I am unable to reduce the output temperature down from 55degrees.
Can I download a manual for this product?

There is a reset button below the setting toggles, it is right above the on/off button. If the light is on next to the reset button it was tripped. Clean unit first, then reset it, the green LED should go out once reset and the unit will run after 1 minute.
