S9 --> h5i air leak at connection
Happy new year!

I've searched high and low for this, but maybe not using the right terminology.

At some point, I attached my h5i to my S9 at an angle or something, and folded over the rubber gasket that seals the tube the runs between the two halves of the machine. After figuring out why it was making noise, I straightened out that seal, but it's still got a crease, so it still leaks a little.

Has anyone run into this? Is this a seal/gasket/o-ring that I can replace? I've looked for parts for the h5i, but everything seal related refers to the lid seal.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi t100,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Have you looked at the suppliers list here on the board at the top of each page? You might find what you need at one of those suppliers.
Hang in there for more suggestions.
Much success to you as you continue your CPAP therapy.

OK I'll take it in, or call one of the suppliers in the list as I've had no luck finding this part on any of their websites. Thanks!

Did you see how they removed it? It's not obvious to me how you get that out.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.
Click here for information on the main alternative to CPAP.
If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

I'd be happy to experiment on replacing it, and post pictures of R&R if I could find the part. Maybe when I go to the DME they can give me a part number as I have little doubt I'll need to do this again sometime.
