According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.
This next part may or may not be relevant.
Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.
Barring that, here is the service center contact info:

I posted the instructions for cleaning the unit a little while ago, but under a different Crane humidifier product. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t253969-cleaning_instructions

It sounds very much like the transducer has failed. This is likely a crystal transducer and since they produce the agitation that should cause a mist, they are running continuously; not a good thing for something that is trying to shake iteslf apart all the time.
These require input from a circuit that produces the fairly high level of power needed to drive the crystal so it could also be the source of the problem.
This isn't something an owner is able to diagnose unless they have some technical training.

tentative on the Solution icon ...
I picked this up a couple days ago at the Salvation Army, 3 bucks. I also had way too much damp coming out, saturating anything near.
I read through the comments, and one folk said they uncovered the spaz unit and tightened the screw they found there, to no avail. They asked if they should reopen and loosened the screw ...
Which I did. Took me a while, and maybe those who aren't used to investigating the inner workings shouldn't try it unless they're willing to make a mistake and throw it away, but ...
I loosened the screw. Not sure if it was a quarter turn or a half turn; I wanted to do more and have learned many times that "more" is not "better."
I have a cardboard box in front of the unit for hours now, and it is not saturated.
The factory setting, whether it be for all or some, is too wet. Loosening the screw that shows through the computer board has, for me, made the unit more tolerable. Takes an eyeglass-screwdriver to get it done, but if'n ya has the general know-how to investigate things, maybe it'll work for you.

If there is not much leftover water, you don't have to worry much about it. However, if the leftover water is
somewhat flooding the area where it was located, it is a
different story, there is a leak and it must be corrected.
Check for leaks in the water container, so that operates
normally. Hope this will help you.
