Place your Venta humidifier on a flat, water-resistant surface. Ensure the unit is off of the floor and out of direct sunlight. Point the nozzle away from objects and walls.
With the power off and humidifier unplugged, lift the tank straight up and off the base. Grip the handle on top and turn the tank upside down, then unscrew the cap.
Remove the demineralization filter from the tank for the first use, and soak it in warm water for five minutes. Replace the filter, then fill the tank completely with cool filtered or tap water. Screw the cap back on.
Place the water tank back on the base and let it sit for two to three minutes, then plug the pronged end of the power cord into a standard AC electrical outlet.
Push the "On/Off" button to turn on the humidifier, or turn the knob to the right until the power indicator lights up. Press the "Warm Mist" button in the center of the control panel to change the mist temperature to warm, and turn the "Humidity" knob to the right to increase the humidity level.
Set the humidity level on the digital Venta, if applicable, by pushing the "Humidity" button on the control panel. Press it continuously until you reach the desired humidity level -- with each press of the button it increases 5 percent. Aim for 40- to 55-percent humidity for best results.
- Clean your Venta humidifier weekly during periods of constant use. Refer to your user manual for detailed cleaning instructions.
