Angry Resmed AirSense 10 problem
Weird problem - So on my last post a few weeks ago, I went into detail about water leaking from the chamber into the machine - I bought a new chamber and all was well until last night when once again....water was on and around the heating pad and the bottom of water chamber was wet. There are no cracks in the chamber - it is most bizarre...so now I'm thinking could it be the hose? that's the only other part - but I'm at a loss about how the hose could spit back the water under the chamber. I'm using the pass-over method so it's not being heated - has anyone else encountered this problem? I'm actually getting scared to use it.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

RE: Resmed AirSense 10 problem
My suspicion is that you're over-filling the reservoir, or not using the machine on a level surface. The Airsense water chamber is equipped with a lid that seals on a silicone seal. The lid has two tubes to prevent water from migrating to the hose or machine. It's really a pretty good arrangement unless you overfill, or tilt the machine, then it could potentially spill. Do not exceed the full-line on the lower reservoir and keep the machine level.

If you fill the water chamber and close the lid, without putting it into the machine, see how much you can tilt it without causing a spill.

RE: Resmed AirSense 10 problem
Thank you for your thoughts but the answer is no to both. Flat surface and I rarely fill it to the maximum line. I have also tested that spillage as you suggested and I have to tilt it a long way. It's extremely frustrating. I've used the machine for over a year without problems....it's only the past month that it's been doing it

Since the water apparently does not come from the tank, then it must be condensation. Check the relative humidity and temperature variation in your bedroom.
