Omron Microair help needed

hi :)

i have had my omron for about 6 months now and today it doesn't seem to be working, it turns on and there's no problem with the power as i have used the adaptor with it and tried with new batteries. It turns on but no mist is being formed at all, the mesh appears to be ok so I don't really know what is wrong. My compressor nebuliser isn't working that great at the moment either and I need to take it for servicing as soon as possible so I am kind of relying on the omron at the moment cos my asthma isn't good at the moment so I really need my omron to be working. So does anyone have any suggestions as to what is wrong?

thanks, simi xx

Try wiping the connection between main base and the plasitic part that you take off when you are cleaning it. The bit below the medicine holder.

I find if that has got wet it does not work.



hey Plumie I've just tried that and it hasn't seemed to work but thank you for the suggestion. simi x


Hi Simi,

I too had some trouble with my Omron Microair few weeks ago. Mine appeared to be completely dead, so I changed the batteries but it didn't make a difference. I left it for a few minutes then gave it a shake and it worked. I think it might have had some loose connections inside. Luckily I had the backup of another microair plus my compressor. The only other thing I can suggest trying is to give it all a good clean.

Hope it starts working again!



I wipe the conectors on both parts with a steret or some alcohol based cleaner.

Give the mesh a good clean! Wash in warm soapy water ( Wash up liquid!) Boil in sterile water or soak in Steredent!

I assume you do clean the mesh often??

If you have tried all the above, contact the supplier!

I always have a spare mesh with me - even the slightest dink or bit of dirt can affect it.
