How many hours have you got on your dreamstation?

How many hours have you got on your dreamstation?
Hi all,

Just hit 5150 blower hours / 5147 therapy hours on my device. I've just noticed the whirring noise but only slightly. What's the typical life of the device? I've used the device daily for two years now and just replaced my N20 nose mask as it broke ?

It's my understanding that good quality machines like the dreamstation and Resmed are good for at least 5 years or about 15,000 hrs.

Wow, that’s a lot of hours on a machine. Is it still running well?

Just to be safe, you should consider a backup, or upgrade to a newer machine and keep the S9 as a backup.

The humidifier just quit, I think I flooded it so that is not the machine's fault. The machine itself is still running as it did on day 1. I am presently looking into a new machine mostly for peace of mind.

I've had my current DreamStation for 1 year. I use it every night for about 7.5 hours a night. So I'd estimate that I have about 2,000 hours on it.

Just checked my Dream Station. It shows 9855 blower hours. I've been using it for 3 years, 5 months. Still works like a "dream"
