cold air s9 resmed
The air being sent to my mask is very cold. When I check the tub on my S9 RESMED machine it is also cold. The auto temp setting is at 79. How do I check if my humidifier is working? thx Joanie

If the shoe fits, see if there is another one just like it.

Hello and welcome!
Resmed has a video and other information on this here:

Hope this helps.

To err is human, but to really mess things up, you need a computer.

RE: cold air s9 resmed
The humidifier tub is never going to feel warm.

ResMed Wrote:Q: Is there a simple way for me to check that my H5i heater plate is working properly?
A: Yes. To confirm H5i function, complete the following steps;
1. Disconnect ClimateLine tubing and remove the water tub.
2. While the S9 is NOT running, place your hand on the heater plate to assess the temperature of the H5i heater plate. NOTE: Do NOT place your hand on the heater plate if the H5i has been running in the 10 minutes prior to this test as it may still be hot.
3. Set the humidifier output to 6.
4. Place the unit in warm-up mode and allow it to run for 1 minute.
5. Place your hand above the heater plate (without touching it) to confirm an increase in heater plate temperature. Don’t place your hand directly on the heater plate as it will be hot.
6. Press the dial for 3 seconds to enable cooling down mode.

Do you use the ClimateLine heated hose? I found that it made a great difference in both comfort and warmth.

RE: cold air s9 resmed
Thanks for the welcome and quick responses. I went thru the heater plate check and the plate temp after running at level 6 for a 60 secs was only very sightly warm. Should it be hotter? As for the heated hose, I'm quite sure I have it, but I'll confirm on Monday with my supplier. thx Joanie

I believe the heated hose has a twist interlock at the humidifier -- where a regular hose does not.

The heater plate should not get very hot, especially in the time given for the test. It's purpose is to warm the water in the tank, increasing its vapor pressure to humidify air passing over the water.

RE: cold air s9 resmed
I have a twist interlock, therefore a heated hose. Since the plate does not get hot, the heated hose becomes a non factor? I'll have to try and get a replacement for the plate? thx Joanie

You have the climate line (heated hose), temp setting (79) is only available when climate line attached
Read here how to set the climate line on auto or manual mode http://www.resmed.com/au/assets/document...lo_eng.pdf

My hose does not feel warm either but I know its working, the air feel warm and water level dropped one level
Whats the model of your machine, model name printed next to on/off button
