I have been using this machine since April and have had no issues until the past 2 weeks. I have exchanged out my machine and climate line tube 2 times already. I have read some posts that seem like are close to my problem but I think I figured out what might be going on.
There are 2 issues I have been dealing with is first this message that I get about once a night that my tube is blocked and the machine turns off. This has done this on all 3 machines. The second issue is they stop recording after a couple of hours of use but still continue to work but there is only the 2 hours of data from that nights sleep.
I switched out my climate line hose I have 3 news ones which I have tried them all and have exchanged 2 of them out with new ones I still get these same problem. I went back to the with the slimline hose, and everything works perfect when using it. So it seems like the problem is coming from my climate line hoses.
Has anyone else have experienced this problem? I don’t understand what has recently happen that may be causing this since I had no issues since April until 2 weeks ago and I keep getting these same issues on the 2 new machines I exchanged out.
This is happening with my DW's 10 AutoSet with a climate line tube, and P10 nose pillows and it is pzing her off and driving me nuts because as she is still in her compliance period I am not going to touch it. Most recent time she was awake and reading when it shut itself off and there was no blockage. Hose is make a straight run from the machine to a hook on the wall and then down to her mask. I see no possible water trap. She does have nasal congestion and my best WAG is upper limit of 10cm will not push air and so machine thinks it has a blacked hose. This bugs me because I want to increase the upper limit a bit but don't wanna pss off her sleep doc and risk a non-compliance issue.
Rant Off and I feel better
I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

I have replaced my machine 3 times and also had my provider replace 3 of my climate line hoses. I have the issues weeded down to the climate line hose. If I use the slimline hose every works and records the entire night. When i use the climate line hose the problems happen. Being that I have had these same issues with 4 machines now its strange this issue isnt effecting more people. I called resmed and they told me they have never heard of these issues.
In my experience it is definitely with the hose. I am on my 4th machine so I realized the problem was likely to be corrected on my end. To resolve the issue I purchased a snugglehose for the tube, turned the tube setting to AUTO, took the "U" dip out of the line run between the machine and the mask, turned my room temperature at night up from 62 to 65 because I live in a high humidity area, and put the hose run under my covers for much of the run. Since applying these changes I have resolved these issues. YMMV
