Internal cpap repair parts

Internal cpap repair parts
If I want to try my hand at repairing my Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset, where can I purchase parts ? Like the blower motor, or whatever its official title is ? Internet search for " cpap repair parts" is just taking me to all the cpap sellers, who call repair parts a new water chamber or hose . . . .

RE: Internal cpap repair parts
It may be hard to find these parts.  Have you tried places like: eBay, DOTMed, Craigslist, etc?

Also, check Supplier #27 and Supplier #28, they may give you an estimate for repair, or some idea if it is worth repairing.

If looking to replace, check Supplier #2, as they sell low hour used and open box new equipment.

Let us know what you end up doing and good luck. Smile

RE: Internal cpap repair parts
Thanks for your reply.

 I have looked on e-bay and Craigslist, with zero results. I do know about open box and "gently used" machines, and repair services. But I have some tech experience, and really would like to try fixing it myself. I guess my question might be where the repair facilities get the parts they use, and if I could buy from the same sources.  

Any additional assistance would be appreciated _

RE: Internal cpap repair parts
I think the problem here is the fact that these devices are classed as Medical Devices so, in various countries, it is effectively a closed shop situation, with only Authorised Agents having access to the Parts Diagrams and Internal Repair/Replacement Parts.

Put another way, it keeps the Profits tight, which is not always in the Customers' best interests, but certainly helps all those involved in the manufacture, sale and service sectors.

This explains the almost total lack of any such Parts being available, other than used Parts salvaged from pre-used machines.

I would love to have a Parts Diagram for my own ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet, plus a Part Listing stated via Part Number.

Like I have available for my Car, for example!

Internally, having fully disassembled both my own machine, and my wife's identical unit, the main item that is hard to clean is the blower motor, as that's sealed into a little clear perspex pot, with suck and blow holes at either end. All I can do there is squirt in a little Isopropanol 99.9% and let that dry. Everything else in the air supply side can be cleaned, so the only other Parts are the PCB, Pressure Sensors, SD Card Reader, Humidifier Heating Plate and the Front Rotary Switch.

The Blower Motor is the main internal unit I would like to be able to buy new.

Thanks for your reply!

I too would love to have the parts list and layout diagram. Alas.  

 The part that is suspect currently is the blower motor. As far as using scavanged parts from impaired machines, ( if I can get my hands on any) do you happen to know if the blower motors are the same on the Airsense 10 and the Airsense 10 Autoset, as well as on the Airsense for Her variety, or does each use a different motor ? 

Carry on, and thanks again -

The Group that played with an S10 to see if it could be re-jigged as a non-invasive Ventilator during the early days of the Bat Flu Plandemic, thought that many of the S10 machines share a lot of the same Hardware, just with features disabled in the Firmware. Just Google Airbreak.dev and you can read all about it.

I gather the S10 AutoSet, whilst limited to 20cm out of the Factory, can actually, or technically, go to 30cm, but that isn't enabled.

So I think the Blower Motors could well be the same within a Model Range, or usable without throwing up an Error Code.

A Suck It And See moment I regret!

I will check out the info at Airbreak.dev, thanks much.  I thought it likely that the motors were the same, we shall see . . . . .
