HAUEA 5.5L Mist Humidifier,Top-Filling Nightlight Design, Ultrasonic Humidifier with Customized Humidity & Auto Shut-off & Timer Function, Remote, Quiet Air Humidifier for Large Bedroom
For the under 2 days I had this Ultrasonic Humidifier, it was great! Much better than the humidifiers I’ve had before. Twice as quiet, and the top fill was a definite selling point.
Then I went to clean it, and lifting out the filter, it just fell apart.
To be clear, I was lifting the filter VERY carefully. And two-thirds of the way out of the water tank, it just came apart. No twisting, no dropping, just woosh! And the beads and bottom plastic half were all over the place. And it wouldn’t go back together. Most reviews said it was actually difficult to get the filter APART for cleaning. When I looked at the filter outer pieces, it looked like it was supposed to have locking tabs (twist one way, the tabs separate, twist the other, they lock together) but there was almost no tab, like my filter had improperly molded.
I’m getting a replacement, will edit after checking it out.
EDIT: First thing I did was with the replacement was check out the filter, seeing how easily it came apart and if it would go back together. This time, as most reviews said, it was very stiff and a bit difficult to open, and it went back together fairly easily. Turned it upside down, shook it, everything’s fine. Also, this filter’s out part had the tabs I expected. So there was definitely something wrong with the first I received, not a design flaw.Promised Review By KG
