Humidifier doesn't blow....and that's bad.

I have a Kenmore console humidifier. Recently it's become unable to blow in any setting but the 'low' one. I've tried changing the filter but that didn't work. Any ideas from the fixy-oriented on things I could try?

If you're not using distilled water (and please who does?) it might be limed up. My dad cleans his seasonally with CLR.

Lime probably wouldn't affect the fan speed.

Probably a bad switch- what does the fan do when it is at the higher settings? Nothing? or spin at the same speed?

Response by poster: It used to have 3 settings; F1, F2, and F3. Now it only seems to have the one setting which now says just "F." It blows or it doesn't blow.

Oh, it is like a LED or LCD display rather than a knob? No clue.
