ResMed AirSense 10 Disassembly and Modem Removal

ResMed AirSense 10 Disassembly and Modem Removal
For those who have purchased a used unit and have an interest in either (1) disabling/removing the modem or (2) disassembling the pump assembly in order to clean it, I did a complete teardown and re-assembly video of my ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet For Her.

I hope this is useful for someone. At the very least, it should satiate your curiosity about what's inside.

Sorry for the low volume.

Very nice video. Thanks for that. :-)

For people wanting the bottom line on the modem disconnection it is at time stamp 3:59.
In this image your finger is on the modem connector that can be disconnected easily.
Maybe use a bit of electrical tape to isolate the connector once disconnected.

Tool required to open the case is Torx (or Star) size 10 to avoid damaging the screwheads.

Good job! Interesting how it’s put together. I thought it would have been a lot more complicated.

Yeah, usually this type of thing has tamper-proof screws, adhesives, and other things that make it difficult to take apart. Basically they designed it to be simple, water-resistant, and easily repaired. Nice for us.

And it still takes six weeks to get a quote on a repair, according to my Ontario DME...

I am just now out of my 5 year warranty, with about 13000 hours. Too soon to get a new one, too much annoyance just because my hose won't heat.

Maybe I should take it apart...

Thanks for the video. I only went as far as disabling the modem. It was so handy to see how to get the covers off.

Yeah, interesting. Older models had a ton of foam in them to keep things quiet, but this one had none at all (except the little ring I point out). I guess they found other ways to make them quiet.
