The R2-D2 humidifier is a fairly simple device to take apart. We will start with the preparation for the tear-down.

    • Locate the valve at the bottom of the tank.

    • Twist the valve counterclockwise to remove it.

    • Flip the base upside-down

    • Connect the 4 mm nut driver to the 4 mm aluminum driver. Then, connect the PH1 head to the 4 mm nut driver.

    • Insert the driver into each of the 4 holes and twist counter clockwise to remove the screws.

    • Flip the base upright and pull off the top.

    • Connect a PH1 head to the 4 mm aluminum driver

    • Unscrew the circled screws of both the circuit board and heating plate(metal plate)

    • Gently remove the circuit board

    • Gently pull out the fan (located in the red rectangle)

    • We recommend removing the circuit board before attempting to completely remove the fan.

    • Unplug the pin, connected to the circuit board, to remove the fan.

      • Note: Remove the pin cautiously, the edges may hurt your fingers.

    • The LED is connected to a pin that is connected to the circuit board.

    • Upon close inspection, you can see that the LED's two ends are bent (red circle of the second image) to prevent it from slipping off of the pin.

    • Use blunt tweezers to bend and straighten the two ends.

    • Once the two ends are straight, gently pull the LED out of the pin.

    • Remove the screws (located in the red circles) off of the heating plate with a 4 mm aluminum driver with a PH1 head.

    • Once the screws are removed, gently pull off the metal plate.

    • All the inner components of the humidifier.
