[Equipment] Resmed a 10 noisy/whines???
#1
I have used the S9 and liked it very much. When I changed insurance, they offered me a new machine. My doctor recommended the Resmed Airsense 10
It is supposed to be quieter, but every night, after a few hours, it begins to squeal/whine. Louder when I breathe in. It seems to be coming from the left side. Has anyone else had this problem???
Thanks
Trying to decide if I should return it.

Hi mpedersen,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You should return it and exchange it, it shouldn't squeel or wine.
Hang in there for more suggestions and much success to you with your CPAP therapy and good luck on exchangeing your machine.

Two quick things to check...

1. My A10 gets noisy when the air filter is dirty. If you have had it a short time it's probly not been long enough but easy to test with a new filter.

2. Sometimes if the water tank is not securely fastened there will be a loud whistley sound esp when you inhale. Gently pull it out a bit then firmly press it back in to ensure a good air seal.

As for timing, if mine is gonna do this it starts when I turn it on but sometimes I won't notice it until the room is dark and quiet.

Both of the above situations are easy to resolve and could happen even if you replace your machine.

So rule those out and if it still noisy the machine is defective and need to return it.

Mine is super quiet but it makes noise when the water tank isn't inserted firmly into the unit. Make sure it is in all the way and check the gasket on the tank also.

Yes, sound like faulty machine to me
Anything that disturb your sleep cannot be any good

Also, might as well, replaced it with "AutoSet for Her" model
CPAP is the basic model does not give much useful data for you and your doctor to evaluate how the therapy is going

[should say "AutoSet, AutoSet for Her, Elite or CPAP"]

I got the "for her" a few weeks ago. It has breathing noise plus a mid note slight whine. Seems louder than it needs to be.

It is coming from one of the three gaskets of the humidifier, two inside the machine that the water tank "plugs" into or the gasket that seals the lid. make sure all three are clean and well seated. Air is leaking out past one of these silicon gaskets.

According to my DME this is a well known design defect to Resmed.

Mine did it again just last night. I had just dumped out the water in the tank and replaced it in the machine. I pulled out the tank and opened it, low and behold about a single drop of water had gotten trapped between the lid seal and the bottom part of the chamber. Dried it off, replaced it and the noise was gone. Before opening the tank, I had removed and replaced the tank several times and the noise was always there. IIRC all three times I have heard this noise, I had just put the tank back in the machine, but I don't remember if I had just added/removed water (not sure why else I would have removed the tank)

Not saying that there is or is not a defect. In my case I have always been able to get the noise to go away and last night I found what could be a reason for it. The DME saying it's a known defect could just be them saying that they know of this issue and the factory may or may not have identified why it is happening yet.

On the left side of the machine is the intake filter. Open the door and check that it is seated properly and not dirty. I know you said it was a new machine but check it anyway.
