[CPAP] CPAP stopped working
#1
Sad 
Hi, I have been sleeping with my cpap for a month. Tuesday night I put it on and pressed the start button...everything good, I awoke at 5 (very unusual with cpap) to go to urinate, put the mask on pressed the start button and lo and behold nothing happened, would not work. Took tub out, unplugged it, plugged It back in later that night ......nothing happened. thE display said resmed so power is working. Please help me!  Thanks

How long did you leave the power off?

Does any place feel hot to the touch?

Any odors of burning. etc.

You have a 9 series machine; yet you have been using it about a month.
The 9 series is still in service; but seldom dispensed. If recently dispensed by a US DME, they should back up the sale.

Did you acquire it used? What exact model do you have? (Look near the start button)
You might request the manual for it following these instructions:
http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual
See if you can follow the menu to find the total machine hours. You may have a machine that's at end of life.

It's rather unusual for it not to give some obscure error code; whom no one can decipher.
