F20 elbow blocking airflow

F20 elbow blocking airflow
Hi,

Has anyone ever had the new F20 elbow baffles slap open and closed quite loudly and actually inhibit airflow? 

I woke up gasping for air the other night and could not get a big enough breath in. On further inspection the 2 baffles were almost clapping against the side of the elbow seemingly closing in reverse order. Closed on inhale and open on exhale making in and out both very challenging. 

Last night it started working normally again. 

Any insight would be appreciated!

Josh

Those flap are to stop you being unable to breath when the machine is off it sounds like your machine was off

Thanks for the reply. The machine was on both during sleep and during testing.

Yes, that happens to me sometimes. It especially happens if my pillowcase or sheet is touching that area.

Sometimes I get that flapping sound as well. It usually occurs if I happen to breathe too fast or suddenly. Not sure why.  Dont-know
