RE: Really dumb question
No dumb questions.  It is located at a slot on the right side of the machine in front of the humidifier.  A door opens at that location to allow you access to the intake filter.  The smaller slot forward of the filter is the SD card. You should request a free copy of the setup manual. http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual

RE: Really dumb question
In the photo above... the dark blue thing is the filter ( obvious, I know  Grin ), it will probably also have a micro-filter attached to the bottom of the filter - usually pale blue in colour with white filter material.

The main filter can be washed for re-use, and although not recommended.. I have also washed and re-used the micro-filter for the last 12 months as well - just to see if it could be done, and for how long.  Bag-head

When the filter cover is closed there is a small vent gap it draws air in through, so placing something that emits a fragrance/aroma/scent next to your CPAP machine near that vent intake should work.

Some nights I think I need a jar of Vicks Vaporub next to mine so the menthol fumes help to keep my nose from blocking.  Thinking-about
