Good old,bad new one
I bought an unit long years ago. I've been really happy with it so I decided to buy a new unit for another room in the house. This new unit has started giving me problems 9 months after purchase, not mentioning I wasn't using it right away, so infact it started giving me problems in less time than that. :-(. I am sad. I tried contacting company in December 2013 but they were closed for holidays. Now trying againinJanuary and February but it's taking forever. I'll try to write a letter soon either by e mail or snail mail.
Great solid simple humidifier
Bought two of these. Had some from 20 years ago. Works great as of now. WE've had for two weeks now working nonstop. It has helped with dryness in the room, and increased the temperature. Easy, simple and keeps boiling for a day or two or more without changing water. For the price, you can't beat it. Simple.
i purchase this product fews weeks ago so far is working properly hopefully it keeps doing it , since i bought another product and that it stop working waiting for the customer care service to contact me. other than that very please with this product.
I just bought this but, I love the qualitiy you get from Vicks so I give it 5 stars.

V 150 A-OK
We have used this vaporizer for seven winters. It is easy to fill and use. Easy to clean; quiet. Nite lite is handy. Holds plenty water.
Slag removal is a bit of a chore. And Kaz liquid inhalant seems of little value.
All-in-all, I recommend this handy product.
However it quit working today. Since I am an expert, experienced appliance repairman, I examined it and found one electric wire terminal has a loose, corroded connection to its carbon electrode and the terminal screw cannot be tightened Or loosened. If I can get a new electrode kit, it would be easy to fix. It has a simple, well designed assembly.
Easy to set up and began working as advertised. A nice Gentle Steam rises out of the unit which looks like it will not deposit moisture all around it. A good Feature! Added the Vick Strips and could immediately smell the difference. Looking forward to a good nights sleep.
Bought this last night. It produces plenty of steam, but the Vapopads didn't do anything. There isn't even any smell whatsoever coming from them. Will try again tonight with the Vapo Steam.
So far I really like this one, I bought it to replace an old one that would start spitting about half way through the night and wake me up. I hope that this one doesn't start doing that. I try to clean them as directed. Time will tell.

warm steam vaporizer
I got it to help with congestion, after an hour my kids and i were breathing easier. I love this and would deffinately recommend it to others.
Used it last night for the first time, it did pretty well, but I need to add a pinch or two more salt, as about half the water was left this morning.
Vicks Warm Steam VaporizerAwesome at best price.
Vicks Warm Steam VaporizerAwesome at best price.
Just bought it and it's not working well. I plug it in, follow directions and no steam comes out. My other vaporizer you can smell right away and see the steam coming out. Tho one either doesn't work or doesn't work as well.
Not worth money
This is good while it last. Keep having to add salt and still doesn't steam most of the time!
SO FAR SO GOOD. HELPED MY DAUGHTER WITH HER COUGH.
Not working after 1 season of use
Was great the first winter, this winter not working.
Warm Mist Vicks Vaporizer
This vaporizer is very inexpensive and worth it. I've used more expensive ones in the past with filters that are very difficult to clean. To clean this one, all you do is rinse out the reservoir daily. Weekly, you soak it with bleach and soak the steam unit in vinegar - no scrubbing, mold, etc!
It makes more noise and hence will not give peace ful good night sleep
This product makes more noise and hence it will not give peace ful good night sleep.
I had to replace my previous one. I didn't register my previous one so couldn't get a free replacement so had to purchase a new one because I really liked this product.
We previously purchased a V150SG in 2008, and around the year two mark it effectively quit functioning. Instead of pursuing warranty action, we purchased another one. Here we are at about the two year mark and this one, too, has effectively ceased to function. We went to the store to purchase another one, but noticed the three year warranty, so now we are seeing what can be done. We rated it two stars because when it worked, it was great. However, it seems to have a limited life time.
I love the product! It help to my kids a lot, they sleep all through the night... This is great!
Just purchased for a family member. Won't know until they use it.
Mine stopped blowing out steam
I abosoluetly love it. My son was really congested and after 2 nights of using it he sounds so much better!
The directions can be confusing, but we figured it out. Where you put the Vick's liquid is confusing. In the top of the humidifier or in the water? Overall, good item to purchase.
Easy to use, but I would rather have an ON and OFF switch, because the plug is behind my bed. So I have to move my bed every time I want to use it,
i really cant smell the vapors, like i had hoped but i did not wake up feeling stuffy so it seems to work
I bought this same machine at wal mart when my daughter was sick 3 months ago. I am now sick with chronic bronchitis and I just plugged it in and it doesnt work. I had it stored in my closed in the box and it doesnt work? I only used it for a week. That to me is a bad product. Do not buy this particular one. I mean. When I first bought it it was great because of the liquid that you could put in the top and allow to mix in the air. That was cool. Thats why we bought it. But Im sorry. When you can only use a product for one week and thats it. I dont like wasting my money. I have told everyone I know not to buy it.
Warm SteamVaporizerWorks Great! Great Product
My 4th Vicks VaporizerThe Vicks Warm Steam Vaporizer works very well putting steam into a room and it holds more water than it appears, however, it does have some drawbacks. I originally purchased my first Vicks Vaporizer because it was easy to fill, didn't leak, and was under $10. Now I have just purchased my 4th vaporizer and it still doesn't leak, but has a safety feature to keep kids from pulling the top off so it's not as easy to fill, and the price has gone up to $17. The finger grips are too shallow making it difficult to lift up to add more water when it's hot. The finger grips were too shallow on all the (improved) models I've bought. There are a lot of black particles and discoloration that constantly have to be cleaned and this is the one major problem with this unit. I've spent hours trying to wash these black pieces out of the unit that are too large to come out of the tiny steam holes. This isn't hard water minerals like customer care claims, it's deterioration of the materials in the unit itself. I am supposed to clean the unit after every use, so I guess that means everyday. Not possible in my household. At least once per week I'm supposed to soak the bottom of the vaporizer in 4 inches of vinegar. That makes the maintenance of the vaporizer more expensive and even more labor intensive. They only last a year or two no matter how much you clean it. When it was only $10 I could just throw it away and get a new one. Now that the price has gone up I'll have to find something else.
VaporizerI wish the holes to clean the filter were bigger because the black particles are larger. My product rarely steamed with 1/8 salt, had to use more and it makes noise when the steam is coming out of the receptacle.
Vicks Vaporizer Steam UnitThe Vaporizer is a very good product.
terrible instructionsTerrible instructions. Doesn't say how much medicine to add and where. Box says medicine cup but instructions say in water but not how much. why can't you just say " ... so much medicine per max water level." not trying to convert pints to gallons. And its crazy there was no medicine in the box. Nice to find out once you get home with it and have a sick kid.
GoodI liked the price. The automatic safety shut off was important. It works well.
Good Humdifier at Cheap PriceGreat Buy. Worked well. Specially for babies it is a great product. Mine actually throws water and I am planning to call customer service.
Our water corrodes the carbon rods so much that after numerous cleanings the unit has to be thrown away after about a year of use because there are no replacement parts.
If 2 new screws and 2 new carbon rods were available the unit would work like new for another year or so instead of having to throw all that plastic into the land fill each time.
Not as great.The power behind the steam dwindled.
Quiet OperationReally like the quite operation of this unit. Works very well, putting out steady stream of steam with no "spitting".
I hate the nightlight
I love the vaporizer but i very much dislike the night lite actually wakes me up in the middle of the night. No night lite would be better.
VaporizerThis is the 2nd vaporizer that we have purchased in 3 yrs!! The 1st one we bought worked fine for awhile then no matter what we do with it, it only boils!!! So...we decided to buy a new one!! Yea well....this one didn't work right from the get go!! We added the salt, a pinch at a time, and if it works, it boils and it only steams if it boils!! So therefore, I am not happy with these at all!!!
SimpleJust coming over the flu. My infant son and I were sick and congested. After following these simple directions and plugging it in just made the rest of the night like a relaxation on a warm beach.
better for a nightlight
ours stopped working right away. all it does at night is put light in our room and make noises. DISSAPOINTED
Warm Steam Vaporizerit stopped working after using it once, and it is very hard to get through their customer service warranty department. It takes Hours and hours to get on the call. I would not recommend this product to any one.
nice for the priceVery nice product for the money. This unit replaces a Kaz vaporizer about as old as I am, which I can no longer find. This is why I sought out this brand. Would have given this unit 5 stars exept my old units steam came out in a stream with a tiny amount force where this one just lets it drift out. Therefore you must be above it to be in the steam area.
Thank You VaporizerMy 2yr. old granddaughter sleeps better when she gets a cold. Vaporizer works as promised. Thanks so much :)
Vaporizer is ludI have a vicks Warm Steam vaporizer and it was working great for a month or so, but now it is producing a loud sound along with the vapor. I couldn’t really figure anything out on the website so I decided to register my product.
VaaporiserSince I purchased this vaporiser ,i was having troubles and it did not work as expected.I would stary away from this product.
love it!this humidifier has gotten my two girls through numerous colds very fast! love it, love it!
One, Two, Three, ClickIt is great when you know you can trust a product in times of need for your children. This is one of them. I love the ease of making the purchase, bringing it home and putting it to use. No difficult instructions or bulkey packing. This is the way to go for better breathing in minutes. Thanks.
Vicks Warm Steam VaporizerGood product. Works as intended.
50/50I bought two steam vaporizers. Unfortunately one of them does not work right. From the beginning it made a different sound that kept getting worse with time until it stopped working. The other works flawlessly and really helps keep the room humidified. It also makes the room warmer, so it helps with the heating bill. It also helps if you have a cold or are congested; I don't wake up with a bleeding nose anymore. Only problem is that it can make the room smell really bad if you leave it on for over 8 hours. I recommend users to clean it right after use.
I like the warm steam, however the water is dirty and filled with large black particles. I am concerned about continue use with those things that are floating in the water. We have a Vick cool mist vaporizor and that works sooooooo much better than this one. I would not recommend this one because of the black particles alone.
warm vaporizerI wish there was an on/off switch so that I didn't have to reach behind furniture each time to unplug the unit when I won't be home. I wish there was a way to fully drain the water to store the unit. I also wish there was a dial for more or less humidity wanted.
concernedI bought the warm steam for my granddaughter and we used it this winter without a problem the only thing that concerned me was the loud noise it made. I pulled it out of the closet to use and thegreen light on top doesn't even come on any more I believe its broke because when I GIGGLE THE CORD THE LIGHT COMES ON. What should I do throw it in the garbage and just buy a new one, how long should these things last.
Smaller now?It's working good! Just noticed it's smaller than two years ago! Also, what does the warranty do, u didn't say clear. If not working anymore, can get a new one? Within 3 years?
Hard to Follow Directions
We spent trying to make it work it but, it worked afterall, steam pressure isn't great.
Not WorkingI bought this product last year and have only used it 6-8 times since. At first the product worked properly, but I tried using it today and its not working. It's not warming up right and is making a funny smell. I have changed the water and the Kaz Inhalant and its still making the smell. I'm not happy with this product anymore or the money I spent on it.
PEDS WARM STEAMWORKS GREAT..MY DAUGHTER HAS CROUP SO I BOUGHT IT TO HELP HER
Vaporizerlove it - works great
Warm Steam VaporizorWorks very well against overnight congestion and dry air in the room. One fill up lasts all night. We add a little medicine to it and it works great.
Warm Steam VaporizorWorks great for overnight congestion and eases dryness within the room. One fill up lasts all night. Works great.
kazi think the product could put off more steam
Vicks Warm Steam Vaporizer
I really love this product. It is quiet, and I love how it has a place to put the Vicks Vapopads, a place at the top to add Vicks Vaposteam, as well as being able to add the Vicks Vaposteam directly to the water. Also, it is very easy to clean.
It's easy to use and works well
i buy a V150SG 1 weeks from duane reade and used 3 times, but now it's not working anymore....
not workingit was working i used it 2 times for my newborn baby for breathing problems and now it doesnt work
Great product at a great price. Works great
Great product at a great price. Works great
works very good!! perfect for the nursery
we are going to try it for the first time.
so far,it is working.thank you
Works as good as the old one and that does not happen much these days. Works the same as the old one too. Isn't that great??? The old one worked for 45 years.
There were other brands available, but Kaz and Vicks are well known brands and ones that have been part of my life since I was a child - didn't even consider the other options. There was nothing to consider.
Overall good product
Good product for adding moisture to air in cool weather. I like the medicine cup to add essential oils to also purify and deodorize air. Purchased primarily because of statement of 18-24 hour capacity but I have only been able to get 9 hours so far. Unit bubbles rather noisily for first few hours then slows and quiets down. I like the large capacity bowl. Easy to maintain and I like the info on using vinegar for cleaning. Previous unit of another brand did not give any info on cleaning and sediment build up was bad.
