ResMed Elite s8 shuts off intermittently
Last night I knocked my ResMed Elite s8 off the nightstand. It fell about 18 inches and landed with display face-down. During the night it would shut down intermittently. I'd wake up because the machine stopped. I had to turn off the power to re-start the machine, but between 30 minutes to an hour later it would turn off again and I had to repeat the process. Could a setting have been changed when the machine hit the carpet? Never had this problem before now. Thank you.

Do you have a humidifier? Did water get on the main CPAP machine? Do you have smart start on? I don' know what else to suggest and hopefully someone else has some suggestions for you!!

Yes, the humidifierwas attached at the time. I thought about the water issue but I would think if water had gotten inside the machine it wouldn't work at all.
