[CPAP] Keeps cutting off!
#1
I have Probasics zzzz and for some reason after about 5 minutes, it just cuts off and goes back to Standby. Anybody have any ideas?

Hi Lisa,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Did you try unplugging the machine for a few minutes?
Maybe it got into a glitch.
Hang in there for more suggestions and best of luck to you.

You might want to download the clinical manual

Please let us know if the unplug/replug works or if there is anything in the manual that helps or doesn't help. That way we can help others in the future.

Does it feel warm to the touch when it shuts off? Are you making sure it has plenty of space around it to make sure it isn't over-heating?

That's just a shot in the dark, but first thing that came to mind considering you said it would run fine for first five minutes.

yes, I unplugged it for a while several times. It did fall off the table when it had water in it. However, it works fine when I hit the start button but doesn't last.

Sound like water damage, for replacement machine .. check Supplier #2 for new and used machines

I know this sounds like oversimplification, and the knee jerk reaction is "What, do you think I am stupid?", but I only know that because that was my knee jerk reaction when someone said that to me! Check all plugs. Check to be sure it is not loose at the wall, check that it is not loose at the machine and if your machine has a transformer (a big heavy plastic thing on the cord) it may have a removable cord from that so check that also. If one of them is loose enough it may be losing power for just a second when the covers hit it or the cat runs over it or the breeze blows, whatever, and then by the time you look it is getting power again and is in standby mode. Just a thought. I've been down that path!
Good luck,
Mike
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

Just wondering if you ever found a solution? I am having same problem and can't get my therapist to answer my calls.

How long ago did the dropping incident happen? If it was recently, it may dry out and work properly if you will leave it unplugged for a couple of days, maybe even put it outside in the sun for a couple hour. If it were mine, I'd hook up my vacuum cleaner hose to the outlet of the cleaner so it puts out warm air and blow that into the air inlet of the CPAP, after first removing the filter. That won't hurt anything and may speed the drying process up.

At any rate, don't keep trying to run it, you may do more damage and then drying it out won't help.
