resumed s 10 auto set, water chamber not heating
I recently noticed my water chamber is not using much water if any at all. I checked the metal plate on the bottom as soon as I wake up and it's not even warm. I have a 6 month old Resmed S10 Autoset with heated tubing and regular tubing, I have been using the non heated tubing with a setting of 4. Any thoughts?

What's the ambient humidity of your sleep area?

You just answered your original question. Your humidity is high enough that the CPAP humidifier doesn't need to add much, if any, to your airstream.

Thanks for your reply, I kinda thought that might be the issue. I feel like I need a bit more, is there any adjustments I can make?

Increase the setting. You can get the A10 wet enough to flood the hose.
