GoodKnight 420E
The blower has failed on my GoodKnight machine. Does anyone know if it is worth fixing? Where I could get parts? I'm not afraid to take the machine apart and replace a mechanical component.
Thank You!

It's an older generation machine. Getting parts is very difficult to impossible. You might try supplier 27 and/or 28 on the supplier list.

You should consider a new machine.

Hi VZCPAP,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
It's difficult to get parts for older machines.
You might consider getting a different machine as you would be better served by newer technology.
Check out Supplier #2 here on the board's suppliers list at the top of each page. Supplier #2 has gently-used or open box machines at good prices.
Another link to check out is: http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...ne_Choices
It's a good guide as to which machines to buy and which ones to avoid.
Hang in there for more suggestions and much success to you in getting your machine problems straightened out so you can get good CPAP therapy.
