Am I doing something wrong?
I use a standard 22 mm hose on my machine. So, I have my humidifier set to manual.

Standard routine.... I put on my mask, connect my hose, then press start. I then have to push the knob down as it is giving me an opportunity to change my humidifier setting from the 4.5 I have come to prefer.

I'd rather just press start and go... Am I missing a setting in setup?

Ya my S9 elite does the same thing. I have never noticed an issue though. I just hit start and it stays on the setting.

It should stay on the setting you last had it in. It just gives you the chance to change it if you want.

I just turn it on and ignore.

RE: Am I doing something wrong?
Last night, I just pressed start. I found that pressing the knob was not required. So, I'll conclude I was doing something wrong in that I was taking an unnecessary step. (I did turn the knob last night to 5.0 as it was really dry here yesterday.)

Thanks everyone.
