Before we get started, I have to share that this is a sponsored post. I thank Emma with Essential Oil Haven for partnering with us to share our simple DIY repair parts for getting your Young Living and doTerra diffusers working like brand new. Also, as I am the co-founder of DiffuserDoc, you will appreciate my enthusiasm for our products and my love for the genius mind behind our parts and services.
Well over a decade ago, I purchased a Young Living diffuser with oils. I was hooked. I loved the smell my house had from the oils and I was well aware of the health benefits. I got some good use out of my diffuser until one day I began to notice very little mist. I continued to use it but after a week or so, it just wasn’t misting properly and I had to make a decision…throw it away?… or try and fix it?.

Trying to fix it….
Fixing it was my ideal solution. Let’s face it, diffusers are not cheap and most importantly they don’t recycle, so the last thing I want is for them to sit in a landfill. Luckily my husband has a love for taking things apart and understands the science behind how things work. He knew that the ultrasonic disc was more than likely this issue and he began learning how diffusers worked. He researched its functionality and studied some more. I think an entire year went by and then one day he surprised me with a working diffuser!. From there, we were shocked at how many people we knew had issues with their diffusers. The word spread and the next thing we knew, he fixed countless diffusers. That’s when we knew we had to share this discovery with our diffuser loving friends!
Why does your ultrasonic disc need to be replaced?
I like to best compare the disc to a light bulb. They have a life span and then simply need to be replaced. The ultrasonic disc is responsible for vibrating at a particular frequency which in return creates the vapor. Over time and with wear from oils and water particles they eventually begin to fail. All diffusers regardless of the brand will eventually need maintenance. Check out DiffuserDoc.com for Young Living and doTerra diffuser parts. The repair is quick and easy and our Youtube instructional videos will guide you through the entire process.
There are three simple indicators that your ultrasonic disc needs to be replaced.
There are three common issues one may experience when their ultrasonic disc is failing. One indicator is while diffusing you begin to experience low output of mist or the unfortunate day when your diffuser will not turn on. A blinking light is also a clear indicator that you need a disc replacement. Sometimes it is your fan. You will know this by the loud noise it produces or your fan simply will not run.
