Same as other reviews. It worked great initially and could smell nice smell of inhalant . But after 2 or 3 uses every time it is plugged in, when the steam starts the room is filled with an unpleasant chemical smell. I rinse the vaporiser daily, only use 2 cap fulls of the sniffly noses & use 2 cleaning tablets every second or third night. The smell is unbearable and smells like plastic burning. Very much disappointment wish I had invested few money and bought a good one. Now my new born has sniffy nose and cough due to burning smell from the vaporiser.

It’s a dud
Loved my first Euky Bear Vaporiser, bought a second for child #2 and it’s a dud. Steam comes out of the unit, however, no Euky scents. After running the unit and entering a bedroom there is no beautiful Euky aroma like with my previous unit. Just smells like a wet steamy musky smell. Not impressed. Doesn’t matter how much or how little of the Euky Inhalant liquid I use. And in comparison to my other unit, which both use the same water and same amount of inhalant and run for the same time, this one has much greater ‘grey paint flakes’ in the residual water in the morning.
Worked great at first
I purchased the vaporiser earlier this month (12th May 21) & it worked great initially at helping my newborn daughter sleep with a cold. The last week, every time it is plugged in, when the steam starts the room is filled with an unpleasant chemical smell, every single night. I rinse the vaporiser daily, only use 2 cap fulls of the sniffly noses per night & use a cleaning tablet every third night (& the first initial night of use). The smell is unbearable and we have to unplug the machine & keep our daughter up & out of the room until the smell...subsides. Every night we hope for a different outcome but the smell appears as soon as the steam does. I am incredibly unhappy with this purchase as it has been less than a month & I can no longer use the machine while my daughter is still unwell.

Smells like plastic burning every time when I turn it on
As above - Bought it for my one month old but now I’m not sure if it will harm small babies as it smells badly like plastic burning every single time. Not very good experience

It works. But not sure about long term.
I have been using this every night for the last 3 months. It works quite well at humidifying the room and helps with a sore throat in getting a better night sleep. It is quite. You do hear the faint sound of the water steaming but it is still quieter than the dish washer in the next room. It does warm the room by a degree or two but that is a good thing for winter. The water tank last for about 13 hours so it can easily cover the whole night sleep.
The down side: Because it is so good at humidifying the room, I have to open up all the windows ...and blinds and wardrobe to air out the room during the day. Otherwise mould will start to grow. And like many other reviews here, I have noticed a reduction of steam since the first use. I remember seeing how impressive it was with the steam literally shooting out of the nozzle on the first few nights. Now the steam just rises up from the vent but it is still doing its job. Another concern is the amount of large brown flakes that gets left behind in the water tube after every use. I have been cleaning it after every use and adding the cleaning tablets every few days as per the instruction. The cleaning tablets just turn the flakes into powder so it is less obvious. I am worried that whatever component (I suspect the heating element) is making these flakes will eventually wear out and stop working.

Only worked for one week!
Bought the vaporiser & sniffly nose inhalant from chemist warehouse last week for baby’s cold. Worked great for the first 3 days (floor was wet from the steam) then noticed the steam gets smaller and smaller each use. Used it today for baby’s naps (only 40 minutes each time) then at bedtime suddenly won’t turn on anymore. No lights, no steam, completely broken. What a rubbish product!

Customer service- Faulty product not covered by warranty
Unfortunately I miss placed my receipt and don’t have a bank statement showing purchase and I have been told without it they won’t honour the warranty even though I have the box which still has the batch number on it. I’ve had it less than 3yrs as my toddler is 3.5yrs old and I had been using my sisters one that was 14yrs old up until it died. Very disappointing for what I believe is usually a very good product.

Im not really sure with it
The product is very quiet at night but it produced some flake into the water everytime since the first night I used it. And it looks so dirty. I also use the cleaning tablet every 2-3 times like recommended but still

It is perfect I use it when I have a cold or runny nose
I use it for me and my parnter when we have a cold no problem and works like a dream had it for about 4 years now and still works as good as the day I bought it thanks
Purchased in May 2017.
We purchased one less than a year ago but didn't keep the receipt so couldn't return it. Unsure if we bought a faulty one or they just doesn't work overall . We have spent a lot of money on the cleaning tablets as well as the inhalents and end up just pouring it into a diffuser because the Euky Bear doesn't seem to let out any steam even though the light turns on. I have 2 kids under 3 and thought its help but doesnt which sucks
A waste of money
After using it 5 times I got the same results of all the other reviewers. Big black flackes, the center is also black and there is something rugby coming off

My Vapouriser Won’t Turn On
I have the vapouriser for nearly 10 months. Now suddenly when I plugged in the light is off and no longer operating. Actually I have been noticing that the vapouriser didn’t produced much steam as it should. Now it is completely dead. Please Help

I love the vaporiser, I use it quite a bit with the eucalyptus and cleaning tablets. However I have not used it for a few weeks and now it is making a loud bubbling noise. Nothing that I do is stopping it. It's keeping us awake.

It's just a plastic that smell like it's burning and it emits vapour
This thing has been recommended by the GP as I was told it helps for your kids Snuffy nose. Thought it would be time for a purchase since my lips diffuser was broken.
Had this product for 6 months. It's a waste of money and it just smells bad in time even after putting in some cleaning tablets. Bought it from chemist warehouse

Bad for environment - no replaceable parts!
It’s sad this is a brand for children but when the steam element dies it seems you have to throw away all that plastic without being able to just replace the steam element. So destroy our children’s environment to help them when they’re sick! I agree with other readers to - there is constantly brown flaky deposits building up in the unit & floating in the water The cleaning tablets DON’T work and after a while the essential oils cannot be smelled at all. So disappointed.

Questions & Answers
Hi Euky Bear,
Do you fill water to the full line OR water with the blue part in it to the full line? Because of the odd shape it’s hard to get the fill line “full”. The machine sometimes crackles even though we’ve followed instructions. Thank you.
The fill line was designed to take into account the displacement of water from the heating module. But if you're still having issues with spitting, try filling it just below the fill line, and see if that helps.
Kind Regards, The Euky Bear Team.
Can I leave the euky bear vaporiser on all night?
Yes, it runs for 12-14 hours when the tank is full.
Hi I purchased my son a vaporiser last week and it’s been absolutely fantastic and has helped him recover from a cold so quickly, although, I noticed tonight, after I plugged it on that it had a bad smell filling the room. Kind of like a burn bad smell. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Sorry to hear this. There are a number of things that could be causing this, and the most likely is a build-up of inhalant, cleaning tablets and minerals from the water on the heating module core.
Given the heating unit goes up to ~220C to heat the water, any residual dust, cleaning tablet residues, or just be built up inhalant, or mineral residue left on the heating unit will potentially burn and be left in the water the next time the unit is used. It is not toxic at all, and is an indication that the unit requires a deep clean.
We suggest the unit should be washed with a mild detergent and rinsed very thoroughly before use and in between uses. This should also be done even if using the cleaning tablets, because although they will clean off minerals/scale, they won’t clean off any residual oils from the inhalant. In addition to regular cleaning as above you can also try giving it a soak in Vinegar – add white vinegar to a pot or jug and sit the heating module (The blue section) in this overnight, and then rinse with warm soapy water.
I hope this troubleshooting helps, if not please feel free to call us on Freecall 1800 655 841 or email email@example.com and the team will be happy to assist further.
