[Equipment] Philips Respironics DreamStation 1 Humidifier Flip Latch spring
Philips Respironics DreamStation 1 Humidifier Flip Latch spring
I'm still waiting for my replacement unit based on the recall.  I'm on Medicare and while I'm due to replace the unit, I really would rather get one as part of the recall and save money on my co-pay.
 I am hoping someone on this forum has found where I can order the latch spring on the humidifier latch for the water tank.  This spring is made of plastic and while it did holdup for almost four years and slowly got weaker.  I tried a temporary fix (plastic epoxy) hoping it would last it did not. 

Now I'm using a piece foil wrapper and thin cardboard to wedge the latch close. I don't want to reopen the unit unless I can get a factory part.  Apparently Phillips gets hinky about anyone not a DMS working on it.  My DMS is local and are great folks, but they advise me getting a complete new unit.  Sigh...  So any help would be great!

Wasn't sure if the springs are separate from the latch. Does this help?

Unfortunately, no.  They are separate.  Thanks though!
