You need to change the setting of "Climate Control" in the clinical menu (options) to Auto
The other way which I use is set the Climate Control in the clinical menu to patient and that gives the option in the home screen (press the setup button) to choose either Auto or Manual

Thanks Zonk, will have a look soon. Cheers
EDIT:
Watched video...yes I'm set to Auto, so have now changed that so that I do it manually. Will be hoping for a "plop" free night Laugh-a-lot

RE: Rainout
SUCCESS!! After changing the settings to manual I had a completely plop free night!, Just one query though. When my machine was set on Auto the heating tube felt cold to mildly warm. After changing to manual, the tube felt very warm for a while. Is that normal?

RE: Rainout
hi Weeble, and welcome.
Regards another specialist on the Gold Coast. I used a provider who is based at John Flynn Hospital. Can I say the name? or is that advertising...
They were very helpful, and I get all sorts of useful advice and help from their mask fitter via email, and she has a direct link to the prescribing doctor to - a consultant who visits fortnightly.
If you need more, feel free to mail me

Yep, you can say the doctor's name, no problem. Just no links or web addresses to commercial websites that sell stuff online.

Yep Zonk, I did the same, I bought my machine and mask outright from supplier no. 1 (who shall remain nameless but are indeed, useless money grabbing *beeps*). I just bought my new masks from USA for $99ea free postage. VERY happy with them.

Excellent! Glad you finally got that fixed! I would imagine that would be very annoying! I have never experienced rainout on my CPAP; however when I was yopu I used to do a lot of camping and at certain times of the year would experience rainout inside a tent! You have to leave a vent open! LOL!
My machine does not use climate line so I can't help you with your question though. But it sound right to me. The hose should be warm to prevent the water vapor from condensating.

As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.
