Resmed S9 Questions
Hi, I have the S9 Autoset and have been using it for over a year at this point.
I use it with a humidifer and it has brought my AHI from 63 down to 0.5 an hour.
Back in January I used the s9 with the humidifer on overnight flight from Singapore to Sydney for a few hours and have found it to have a loud air induction noise ever since.
Whereas before I could have the s9 on top of the bedside cupboard; I now need to keep it in a drawer to minimize the noise of the air intake.
Is there anything that is servicable within the machine? and/or are there any places that I could take the machine to so it can be checked/serviced?
Have been considering getting a new machine as well but just thought I would check here first about servicing.

Hi melancholykeith
there is no serviceable parts other than replacing the air filter every now and then
Try a new air filter, ResMed air filters works better than the generics

Since you bought the machine from Supplier #2, used machine comes with 6 months warranty. Talk to them, they might offer you an exchange or maybe a discount on new machine which might works better as you won't have to ship the machine and you won't be left without a machine and keep this one as a backup

RE: Resmed S9 Questions
Water damage may not be your problem in this case, but for future reference the manuals for these machines clearly state do not use a humidifier with water in it when flying on an airplane due to the high probability that water can be sloshed during in-flight turbulence and can get into the blower resulting in damage to the machine. So not a good idea to be using any water in the humidifier during a flight.
