You got lucky. Start working on a new machine.

RE: machine died! Now new doctor and new machine
Wow! What an incredible catch by Sleeprider! Only an expert with extraordinary level knowledge could have known of such an issue, and provided a fix. 

If you don't tell your insurance company you fixed it yourself, maybe they will pay for a new one. They will probably check up on you, to verify you are using the new one. But keep the old one as a backup for the old one. :Smile Or is that too sneaky? It did fail, and maybe 99% of customers would have given up on it.

I personally found I sleep somewhat well with one brand/model of CPAP, but not at all well with another. If you are like me in that, it may be worth it to stay within the same brand and model that works for you.

I guess this is a good reminder to us to be in communication with our Primary Care Managers (our main doctor) about our sleep apnea, so when it comes time for a new machine they can more easily feel comfortable writing the script without making us prove the need again.

my GP had no issues  writing a script even my new one no issues.  try having GP contact DME

Look at the price of an auto CPAP in 2017.  Wow!

Start looking for a new doc and re-up your scrip just in case you have another issue. No time like the present!
