Did your humidifier tank still have water the next day?

Was the filter clogged and the machine have to work too hard and burned some rubber inside?

I have a different brand, but when I got a foul smell, it was acrid and plastic smelling and it was because my humidifier ran out of water. I called ResMed and they said not to worry, that it was from leakage and try not to let it happen again. (I had a smaller mask at the time).

I have had that happen more than once and it is not very pleasant. I think what ResMed told you was just fluff. I definitely agree with trying not to let it happen again. Since I have become careful of that, I have not gotten the fumes again.

Best Regards,
