Broken humidifier? How to test?

Broken humidifier? How to test?
I have my humidifier set on 5. Usually that gives me 2 nights until it empties. However the last 2 nights the tank seems fairly full. I Cant quite tell if its completely full or just more full than usual. I don't know how I would QA this - any thoughts/reccos?

you see humidity increasing everyday in the clouds forming. I'm just saying that the ambient humidity is higher thus your humidifier doesn't have to work as hard. I see the same thing with mine, though not to that extent. Mine is set on Auto.

Ambient humidity is increasing as we head into spring/summer. My guess is it is still working.

If you want to test then pull humidifier out after using CPAP all night, the bottom of it is usually warm directly after use.

You could also try bumping it up to 8 or down to 1 and see if changes are noticeable.
