    #3330095 - 11/07/04 12:46 PM (12 years, 28 days ago)

okay the cool mist seemed to be working fine but this morning i noticed that there is water dripping out the side of it! its the kaz vicks version that a lot of people have.  why would this happen? i filled the water just under the fill line, and there is still air flow coming out the end ofthe tube. any thoughtssss?? :eek:

Yeah.. Your output is restricted too much. Basically not enough outlet causes the slight increase in pressure inside the reservior and causes the condensing(and water droplets) to slowly leak out.

I assume you have a martha or a closet for this... You need a hole on the bottom of the closet(double as a drain). If you have a large enough hole, you need to check the size of your tubing. You might need to get a larger one.

Good luck

thank you, my tube is 3/4 " inside dia. i can go up to a full inch or maybe 1 1/4" you think that wouldhelp? i opened the original hole and i have the tube and its still leaking out the sides. it must need a fatty tube...oh wait maybe its too long lol its like 5 or 6 feet long and the top is at a weird curve down and up right before the fitting at the top so a little water is dwelling in there that could be the problem too right?!

I had the same problem. once you put that hose on there and seal the main exaust air gets blown from the sides and it leaks. Heres what I did. I went to an office supply store and got some of that tacky putty stuff to put up posters and lined the edges of the coolmist with it to create a seal. no more leaks.

thanks! ok i fixed the tube so its all downhill... i let some of the original opening open now and its not leaking out the sides... is it bad to have the extra opening? and if i use the putty is it hard to open to say fill thewater every week?

Yeah. You are relieving pressure through the original opening. That takes away from the pressure needed to push the air to the martha. Make sure you have large enough opening in the martha(drain holes on the bottom) to allow as much air to escape as the coolmist can put in there. Usually you'll need at least 2 1-2" holes on the bottom.

yeah it might be, it sticks pretty well. Mine has a hole where u can pour the water in without removing the motor.I have a timer on my mister too so it lasts a bit longer. Guess it might not be a good idea if you ahve to be taking it off to refill it.
