resmed 10 making noise
The fan or motor on my resmed 10 is making a whining/buzzing noise, the machine works fine just can't sleep with the noise!

Any idea what it is?

You may find this crazy, but remove your mask from the hose , remove the water chamber and blow in the hose 3 or 4 times real good. It may or may not work, but it worked for me.
Mine was making that whining noise and I thought my motor was also the problem. This whining noise has also happened to other people and another person reported back that blowing in it did help but not 100%. Give it a try and report back. Thanks

Tried that didn’t do anything, it’s definitely coming from inside

Probably not it.. but mine was making a weird howl/whoosh one night. I smacked it, nothing.. then I pushed on the water tank, there was a "thuk" sound as it sealed and that fixed it.
Inspect your seals, machine to tank and tank to hose fitting.

Blowers do fail though. How many hours on it ?

My first AirSense 10 made a whining sound with each inhale. Nothing I tired solved the problem.
I returned the Apap to Lincare and ResMed replaced it.
