[Equipment] Respironics blower failure
My Respironics System One (a backup unit I use while traveling) just died in the middle of the night.

I suspect it is the blower due to the noise it makes while attempting start-up.

Is there a built-in diagnostic tool and code that would confirm this ??

Unit has about 9500 hours of usage.

I figured it would cost $200+ to have it repaired and just ordered a Resmed

Airstart 10 Auto as a replacement for about $400 with overnight delivery.

My home machine is a Resmed Airsense 10 Auto.

How common is it for a blower to die after about three years usage ?

Do the Resmed blowers typically last longer ?

Thanks !

No idea how common it is, but my S9 gave up the ghost about then.
