When the filter in your Philips Humidifier is not descaled as often as recommended (every 2 weeks), scale can build up affecting its performance and also creating white or yellow deposits on the filter.
To solve this, descale the filter following these steps:
1 Take out the humidification filter and the filter support from the water tank (A and B in the image below)
2 Remove the humidification filter from the filter support (C in the image below)
Mix white vinegar with an equal amount of tap water in a container that is large enough to soak the humidification filter in
Let the humidification filter soak in the solution for one hour
Discard the water-vinegar solution
Rinse the humidification filter under the tap to rinse away vinegar residues. During rinsing, turn the humidification filter so that both the front and back sides are rinsed
Let excess water drip off the humidification filter
Assemble the humidification filter round the filter support
Put the humidification filter and the filter support back into the water tank
Put the upper unit back onto the water tank
To prevent this from happening, please descale your humidifier’s filter every two weeks.
- Do not squeeze the filter. This might damage it and impact the humidification performance.
• Do not dry the filter under direct sunlight.
