Resmed AirSense 10 Heater Plate Temperature

Resmed AirSense 10 Heater Plate Temperature
Does anyone know what the surface temperature of the heater plate should be after the AirSense 10 completes the warmup cycle?

The User Guide specifications says that the maximum heater plate temperature is 154F. Does this mean that after the warmup cycle is completed that the heater plate should be at 154F?

Mine is showing 95F at the end of the cycle which seems on the low side.

Any comments, feedback is appreciated.

Thanks to all who respond.

Jerry

Welcome to Apnea Board.
I myself do not know the specifics of the temperature, but remember you have humidifier controls of output of 1-8 and a manual or auto mode, both of which modify that heat output.

Thanks, Dave. 

Yes, I'm aware of the settings. I'm having a problem with the humidifier on my brand new AirSense 10 and I think its related to  the heater plate not getting hot enough.

My thought was that if the heater plate reached 154F at the end of the warm up cycle this would indicate that the heating element was working normally. 

I'll play with the setting and give it another couple nights If there's no improvement the unit goes back to the vendor.

I've done a pretty thorough search of this board and I can see that there are a lot of complaints about humidity on the AirSense 10. Of course,  this has to be balanced with the fact that ResMed is the leading vendor and there are a significant number of users on the board who have ResMed machines. 

I also want to add that this board is an enormously helpful resource to users like myself. So, my sincere thanks to all of the moderators and contributors for their hard work in helping to create and sustain this remarkable online community.

Thanks

The degree of heating for the humidifier tank will only be enough to achieve the humidity setting of the unit.

That's right, Crimson, assuming the unit is working correctly. 

I'll still be interested to see if any members here have the answer to my original question.
