RE: Is my i5 humidifier working?
My power supply says 90W.

Again, the i5 orange light comes on (indicating power) but there's no one home.

I don't have any local DME anymore -- mail order only.

Maybe you can find an electronics shop that can test your power supply.

***UPDATE***
They say, third time's the charm. (Fourth reallly. But who's counting?)

Plugged in the newly-shipped, claimed-tested i5. For the first time, I felt heat coming off that plate. Few seconds later, gone.

Remembered what someone here suggested -- try the power supply. My original PS and the newly-used one looked different, but both said ResMed and 90 watts. The new one provided heat continually.

Don't know what to conclude other than this: the i5 is not very reliable, and/or may stop working after a few months.
