Before cleaning, first turn the humidifier off and unplug it from the electrical outlet. To clean the exterior of the humidifier, wipe it down with a soft cloth. Do not submerge the power head in water. Clean the grill with a soft cloth or with a can of compressed air.
To disassemble the humidifier:
- First, remove the water tank
- Next, remove the water tank support rod by pulling the rod outward
- Then remove the power head by turning it counterclockwise to release it from the base and remove the magnetic base cover and all silicone parts
- Clean the base and silicone parts with warm water and a mild detergent, then rinse and dry
- Reassemble the humidifier
- Turn the humidifier off and unplug it from the wall outlet. Disassemble the humidifier per the instructions above.
- Once cooled, remove the silicone parts (heat element cover, reservoir and boil chamber) and clean them with warm water and a mild detergent. You may also use undiluted white vinegar for cleaning these parts.
- Wipe off the heat element with a wet cloth. If needed, you can soak the heat element in 12 oz. of white vinegar for 20-30 minutes and scrub it with a soft brush or a soft cloth to remove mineral deposits. Rinse the heat element with warm water until you cannot detect any vinegar odor.
- Let the humidifier dry completely before storing. Do not store it with any water inside of the water tank, base or around the heat element.

The Element A features a SimpleTank™ system with a single, clear, 1-gallon water tank that is easy to carry, fill and clean.
