Noise coming from resmed f20 airtouch elbow and machine

Noise coming from resmed f20 airtouch elbow and machine
Good day good people

I have been having a problem with noise coming out from the elbow/connector and from my Bipap Resmed Air Curve 10 machine using a f20 airtouch mask.  I have been using this machine and this mask for more than a yea.
I think it all started when I increased the humidity and my doc increased the pressure from 5 to 9-14, now back to 7-14.
After many nights of trying to find a solution, I figured out that the problem was with the connector/elbow. I got a new one and it helped for a night or two and then the same happen.  I am now playing with 3 connectors/elbow during hte night.
I have cleaned the connectors using tooth pick etc....

Thoughts?
Thanks
Jack

Excessive humidity will cause noise.

Not sure if you're talking about the air outlet adapter from the humidifier or a mask elbow. Here is the replaceable outlet adapter. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/ResMed+AirS...ent/137049

Thanks for the help
Speaking about the mask elbow/connector.  The noise was stopped when I used a new connector.
