RE: CLAP machine wheezing sound
I was not able to hear anything unusual in this clip. If you would identify the make and model, perhaps we can offer some suggestions.  Most CPAPs have the audible sound of air movement, and it might help to put it in a bedside drawer if you are sensitive to the sound.

Hi Tyw7,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
I tried to listen for noise in your video, and didn’t hear anything but the normal sounds that a CPAP machine makes, in fact, yours seems to be quieter than mine.
Hang in there for more responses to your post, good luck to you with CPAP therapy.

If you are overly sensitive to the sound, run a fan in your room, or any other white noise.

Is the machine still under warranty?

Yes, sort of.  They are quiet, not silent.  These machines use a variable speed blower (electric motor and "fan" blades) to maintain a specific pressure in your airway.  As you breath in, the blower needs to spin faster to increase the volume of air to maintain the pressure.  As you exhale, it slows down to reduce the airflow to maintain the set pressure.  If you listen carefully, or are very sensitive, you can hear this change.  It might be described as a wheeze.
