I got a tiny wear hole in my climate tube near the neck (common after almost two years of use, I know... 1 year=original owner + almost a year pumping dreams into me) and so I patch it with silicone glue and it seemed fine. THEN later I get a 'climate tube failure, replace tube' error message and I figure it must be my overuse of glue. I figured it must be triggering as too hot or something.
I read that if some people have their tube under covers; which I don't, they might overheat and cause this same error.
Anyway, I call ResMed and they say that I am still; just barely, under warranty. They direct me to take it into this certain local shop. I do so. Shop says it must be tubing and offers to sell me one at seriously jacked up price. (I got a new one off ebay for $35, still sealed in bag) The shop didn't do anything I couldn't have done at home... They plugged it in and read the error message. NO DIAGNOSTIC SOFTWARE! nothing. So by the time my new hose arrives from ebay and I plug it in...my warranty is up. LOL yep!!! still same error message.
Turns out if you jiggle it (focus people! I'm still talking about the climate tube), the error message comes and goes. So I took a piece of tape and attached it to my hose and pulled it at a slightly tight angle and taped it to my cpap unit. Now there is no error message. Used it all night, no error message.
What I want to know is...
Any electronic savvy people out there know a better way to fix a glitch loose connection like this? should I remove the tube and hold the neck at that same angle and apply some glue in the cuff to fix it into place?
Do I need a young priest and an old priest?
Please help folks! I am really bad at finger-painting pentagrams with goat's blood. It would be nice to get a little help from someone in this realm.
Please and thank you.
