I didn't believe the poster who said that it's a waste of time to tear down the machine in an attempt to clean it. But, he was right.

My prior experience led me to not believe him. You never know what to believe!

Sleepster,

I am envious of you, you took apart yor Cpap. I have only removed the humidifier tank.

Being an engineer my moto is:If is broke then take it apart and (try) fix it. If is works then take it apart to see why it works Big Grin

Of course it drives my wife crazy when I fiddle (her words) with things.

You know I have to laugh because when I read his post I thought to myself "what baloney of course it isn't a waste of time..." Now I have two people saying that and I have to fight myself to STILL not want to see it for myself Dielaughing I may have to tie myself to the bed posts!

RE: ResMed S9 Disassemble
After seeing the inside of that PRS1 that stunk me for almost two years I will never assume the inside is clean. These machines are pretty easy to take apart and put back together. They are made to be repaired, but since the parts are so expensive the DIYer will have to keep spare parts on hand. So if you're inclined to do this kind of thing, hang on to your old broken machines. They may come in handy.

A slight hijack from the ResMed S9... I have an older REMstar Auto M Series (model 510M) which has been getting louder over time. I had been reading a few other pages describing disassembly & cleaning, but was still a bit hesitant to try it myself. Your words encouraged me to take the plunge. All it took was the correct tools (Torx T8 and T10 for this machine) and some patience. I did not find any oil film though there was a fair bit of dust which I was anticipating. Used a strip of rag to run through the blower vanes to loosen the dust then a shop vac to get most of the dust out of the machine. I didn't measure the sound level before/after, but my wife's immediate comment was that it was noticeably quieter. So, all of this to say: Thanks for the encouragement!

Happy Thanksgiving!
