Airsense 10 humidifier
#1
My water tank has a small burned area on the metal bottom of the tank. Is this normal?

My A10 water tank does not have burned area but just looks on the greyish side
Is there any water left in the tank in the morning?
Wipe the bottom clean and dry when you insert the tank into the machine after filling it with water and don't over fill ... just below the top line

The machine comes with standard water tank, there is also a dishwasher safe (cleanable water tub)

Hi Bamajim,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
I wouldn't think there should be a burned spot on the metal part but you might have the people at your DME take a look at it.
Hang in there for more ideas.
Much success to you with your CPAP therapy.

I run the humidifier on setting 6. I fill to the max line each night and it is close to empty each morning. Usually has a little water left, maybe an 1/8 to 1/4 inch.

That doesn't sound normal. I would contact your supplier and till then maybe adjust the setting down a bit. Sounds like something is getting hot.

Contact your DME, the machine might be faulty, ask for a replacement, the machine comes with two years warranty. The machine in user profile "Machine: Resmed airsense 10 cpap", AirSesne 10 CPAP does not report any leak data or detailed data on the SD card. High water usage might be also due to leaks but the machine in user profile "Machine: Resmed airsense 10 cpap", AirSense 10 CPAP does not report leak data. I would take the opportunity to ask for the Elite or even better "AirSesne 10 AutoSet For Her" as a replacement

If my humidifier was set at 6, the tank would run out every night. It is that way for my S8 machine and my S9.

AirSesne 10 humidity Level can be set to off or between 1 and 8, 1 is the lowest and 8 is the highest

Thanks zonk,

Learn something new every day. I started out 1 generation of CPAPs behind and I guess I will stay that way.

Checked the surface inside the machine and see no discoloration.
