Hello friends -
I'm using an older GoodKnight 425 bipap. Suddenly, every 20 minutes, it ramps down and the stream of air is weakened. Sort of like the opposite of the ramp up feature, only it isn't gradual - the unit suddenly drops our of warp. I can turn it off and back on again and it corrects the issue for about 20 minutes then the cycle starts all over. Needless to say, it's a little jarring. Anyone know if this is a setting and/or how to correct it?
That sounds like its time for a new machine. I'd guess the blower motor/bearings are shot. Maybe once it gets up to a certain temperature, it just shuts down?
Warp core damaged by Klingons?
The GoodKnight 425 is obsolete; and received less than *stellar* reviews.
Best option seems to be to replace with a current generation machine.
