Gross Annoying hum after dropping machine
Hi!

I'm new here. So I woke up early this morning to a crash, which was my ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her machine hitting the floor. I've been using my machine for nearly six months now and have always slept with it as close to me as possible (on the night stand that I've moved against my bed. The machine's back faces me for the easiest position for the tube). I feel awful. My poor little machine! So I cleaned up the watery mess and turned it back on, but now when I exhale the machine hums. It's sooo annoying. I couldn't go back to sleep with it on so I did without. I'm going to call the local medical center where I got it from to see if they have any suggestions but I can't stand the constant noise from inhaling (nothing you can do) and NOW exhaling. It's like I'm blowing into a machine and causing the noise. It's awful. Help please!

By the way, I know my mask isn't an issue because I put my hand over the end of the hose that plugs into my mask and the machine made the humming noise as well.

Welcome

Have you checked all the seals in the humidifier and inside the humidifier chamber to see if they are still in place?

Ouch! Oops
Reminds me of a story I read in Jr. High.

Best of luck with your machine repairs!

My machine is on a tea cart (wheels removed for solidity) with raised sides so its almost impossible to pull it off onto the floor.
Some folks even spring the cash for fancy CPAP furniture.
Your Mileage May Vary.



Cheers!

Hi RebeccaJeanBean,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Sorry to hear about your machine crash.
I would call the place where you got it and see what they have to say.
Hang in there for more responses to your post and much success to you with your CPAP therapy and getting your machine problem straightened out.
