Deciphering Respironics Humidifier Installation Instructions

Deciphering Respironics Humidifier Installation Instructions
I received a Respironics humidifier (replacement).
The wordless instructions point to someplace on the bottom(? picture doesn't look like the humidifier so it is hard to tell) that I guess I am suppose to read "3.XX" but for what purpose I have no clue.

The next picture shows the humidifier with the lid open, followed by a picture of the lid apparently being dropped into a trash can (??). (It came with a lid attached that did not have the plastic cylinder extending downwards, this is I guess a lid to be used for storage (??)

The next picture shows a close of of the bottom again where I am now suppose to read "2.XX". I have no idea what this is all about.

The next picture shows an open humidifier with the lid with the cylinder (that also came with this humidifier).

You would think the last picture shows the humidifier closed and attached to the CPAP, but no, it shows the lid with the cylinder extending down to where the water would be being placed in what looks like a trash can too.

Anyone understand these instructions?

I've attempted to attach an image of the instructions to this post.

You bought your CPAP at Ikea, didn't you?

LOL That's what I was thinking when I saw the pic.

I don't have that machine and I cannot imagine why they want you to throw away something that was in it.

Plenty of folks here use that machine, though, so help will arrive soon!

RE: Deciphering Respironics Humidifier Installation Instructions
Well, my interpretation of those instructions is that there are two different types of lids for the humidifier tank. If you have a 3.XX version (the picture on the left), use the lid that looks like the left picture and throw the other one out. With a 2.XX version (the picture on the right), use the lid that looks like the right picture and throw the other one out.

Now, I have a Philips Respironics System One 60 Series humidifier, and my tank came with the lid already assembled and no other lid, so I'm just guessing here. Do you actually have two lids? If not, I'd just ignore that paper.

Did your replacement tank come with two lids? I'm guessing this cryptic hieroglyphics is trying to tell you which lid to use based on the model of humidifier you have.

Look up replacement water tanks on Supplier #1's web site and it may make more sense.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

I have a Philips unit and my replacement tank comes with two lids. It appears the tank is designed for multiple units with the only difference being the interface between the machine. It took me a minute or two to figure it out when I got my first replacement. It appears (at least in my case) the cheap top gets thrown out and I keep the good one. I'll have to look closer on the next changeout.

There's a page with drawings on it, constituting the instructions that tell you to do exactly what you did.

I'd say read the directions, but in this case you look at the pictures. Dielaughing
