Ohmy Airsense 10 water tank, water everywwhere
Just setting up my slightly used Airsense 10 Elite. I filled the water tank with distilled water to the level and pushed it in. When I start the machine, air blows over the water in the tank and some splashes out. I get an error: "High leak detected, check your water tub, tub seal or side cover." I took out the water tank and cannot see any seal. It looks like two plastic ports in the top of the tank are supposed to meet with two similar sized seals in the machine. Something doesn't seem right. Does anyone have experience with this problem?

RE: Airsense 10 water tank, water everywwhere
The water chamber comes in 3 parts
1- Base
2 - Lid
3- Seal (goes into the lid)

Also behind the water chamber, there is air outlet seal

You find pictures in the clinical guide, available via email, scroll to section three

Can you use the machine with no water in the tank and humidity off?
Not sure if you can buy the lid separately, probably you'll need to buy a new water chamber
There is "Supplier List" link at the top of the page

Welcome to the forum, coldje

Thank you for the kind responses. Took my Airsense 10 to my friend's house to compare against his and sure enough my WT is devoid of *all* seals, the lip seal inside the lid, the valve, everything. Tried his WT on my machine and it worked great. Ordered a new WT today.

Are you saying you're missing both the internal seals as shown in boxes #4-6? Those, someone correct me if I am wrong, don't come with a new tank. Just the lid seal in #3.

The seals/valves inside the machine shown in #4-6 are there. A new WT will do it. I substituted my friend's WT and it worked fine. I bought a new WT online yesterday for about $22.
