Philips Recall Return payment v Replacement
#1
Philips Recall Return payment v Replacement
I registered my System One CPAP with Philips by telephone conversation as part of the recall process. The rep told me it did not qualify for replacement due to 1. being off warranty and 2. older than its suggested service life of 5 years. I said that I want a replacement anyway. The rep told me to use the automated online Philips recall site to pursue a replacement.

I found at the recall site a statement the claims an out of warranty, past service of 5 years unit is not eligible for replacement. I entered my case number, it was recognized. The last step was to select either payment for return or replacement. I selected replacement. A message appeared that I would receive an email concerning the status of my claim.

It has been 5 days since the request for replacement was made via the online form for recall settlements. No email has come and a visit to the site gives no indication of the claim status. I do not agree with a replacement being denied for my unit, but I will not pursue this beyond a request unless there is third party recourse available.

Has anyone gotten replacement for a CPAP that is past the suggested 5 year service life? There are no new units of my model, but a refurbished one would be fine for replacement or a repair of mine. If the payment to return is substantial, that would be okay too, but the site does not give that amount. Does anyone know the amount paid for a return? 

Thanks for any advice.
I only give suggestions from experience as a fellow CPAP user, not professional advice.

RE: Philips Recall Return payment v Replacement
Yes. I was able to get a new DreamStation 2 BiPAP AutoSV from my DME. I filled out the form not long after hearing about the recall on the Phillips website. My System One was over 5 years old too. I kept waiting and waiting to hear from Phillips about a replacement for my unit, but nothing ever came and there was on communication from Phillips. Every time I’d check the website or call the number to get a status update nothing would come of it. I’d been in touch with my DME and Dr. and my DME finally came through. I took my old one into the DME, handed it in and they gave me a new one. I was out the door within 1/2 hour.
