[Equipment] DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG
#1
Angry 
I was trying to determine if My CPAP machine was still functioning OK, and I think I did something wrong; it is a 2011 RemStar, Auto, A Flex. If I run the machine just through the hose, it will shut off after a few minutes, however, if I run it while on my nose (Patel Zest Nasal), it will operate all night (must continue to breath into mask to keep machine running). This is something new fo me, used to be able to run forever to dry out a hose. Did I adjust something I should not have, or is the machine growing old (like me!).

Is there a setting that might have changed? For example, in a different brand, there is a feature to turn off the machine if no breathing is detected.

Thank you Beej, I think you hit it. I just discovered on my machine under set up, the auto off has to be set to off, and the auto on set to on, so no breathing the machine turns off (the terminology threw me).

If all you need is a hose dryer, place something on the end to restrict flow, and it will work fine. You don't need the full volume anyway. Make it entertaining and put a balloon or other inflatable object on the end with a hole in it. Use your imagination, it could be a real conversation piece.
