blower for REMStar Pro 2
I have an old REMStar Pro 2 and I want to use the blower for air circulation in a refrigerator. If I just plug it in and turn it on it turns itself off after awhile because of the pressure sensors. I tried turning off the alert in the config menu but that didn't do anything. I also tried taking it apart and disconnecting the small air hoses to the flow and pressure sensors, which then gives me Error code 77.

Is there a way to set it up to ignore all that flow and pressure sensing and just have it run the blower constantly? The only other thing I can think of is to wire a DC adapter directly to the blower. I don't have a 12V 3A adapter laying around and I don't want to go buy one when the unit already does that conversion for me. Maybe I can short it across to the blower wires from the board power supply somewhere?

RE: blower for REMStar Pro 2
I know what the error means and how to fix it, I'm the one who disconnected that line in the first place.

I'm not trying to make it work as a CPAP machine. I'm trying to make it work as a continuous air pump.

If the blower runs off 12.3v then I would think it would be just as happy on straight 12v.
as long as you feed it enough current at that voltage otherwise your powersupply might overheat.
Just bypass all the fancy control circuitry.
