I don't even like it when my computer turns on all by itself. So this S9 has to go.
It's under warranty, so back to the DME with ya and tell them to make good on the warranty because it is a fire hazard, and you are sure they really don't want to take the liability for something toasting your house. If they still think it's not a great idea to swap the machine out, ask them for a note stating they will be responsible for building you a new house. Or better yet, find a new DME.
The power brick may run quite hot; the machine should not. A sure sign the machine is Kaput.

No smoking in house, no pets, unit is on flat surface bedside stand. Please excuse the spelling error in title. Don't know about line spikes, but no other problems with other appliances, such as my PC.

I had called my physician on this problem. He works for that regional hospital group affiliated with my CPAP provider. The provider had sent my machine to the groups hospital medical equipment technicians for examination last week. My doctor informed me by telephone today that my machine will be replaced with the newer model ResMed without cost to me. I intend to ask for a report on exactly what their technicians found when they examined my unit.
The original advice I had from the provider staff was that I had to call ResMed myself for any advice or adjustments on the machine. I complied with their advice, only to find that ResMed uses recorded message menus to direct you to your vendor for any service or purchase adjustments.
