I assume you mean your humidifier is set to 4.5; have you tried raising the humidifier setting? Or, you might need a chin strap to keep your mouth closed during the night.

I have a different machine but my humidifier stopped working after a year. I tried everything from unplugging the machine, removing and snapping the humidifier back onto the machine, changing the humidifier settings, etc. I made an appointment with my DME and told the technician all that I tried. He said since none of those things helped, my heater must have stopped working. I needed to replace the humidifier and was given a used one as a replacement. I noticed now after 6 months the same thing is happening. I will probably have to replace this one too. Supplier #2 sells gently used ones at a decent price if you need to pay out of pocket for a replacement.
