Th humidifier of the AirSense 10 is built-ins, you'll only need to replace the water chamber if required

There is the problem, rainout and leak
You might want to look into getting the heated tube, when on "auto", set tube temperature to preference and protects against rainout but still have to work towards fixing the leaks

I usually pull the reservoir back off and wipe down the seal and its all better, really was irritating at first until I figured out what it was.

Hi

I too live in W.A. I had a hire machine for a month which worked perfectly so i decided to rob the bank to buy my own one. My one does exactly the same thing. After running warmup and then inhaling, the noise starts until i remove the tank and refit it

Im considering taking it in for replacement as its only a week old

Regards

Danny

Not really anything wrong with the machine. There are 3 silicon seals regarding the water tank: two round ones inside the machine and one between the lid and the base. If any of these gets contaminated with anything, oil from your hands, water, or soap, they will leak and it does not matter if the tank has water in it or not.

This is just like the mask silicon seal. Keep the "other" seals clean and dry just like you do with your face mask.

It would sure be nice if they sent out a note about this instead of just letting us find out one at a time.

Thanks for the feedback on this everyone. I have had four nights with only one occurrance of the noise, and since I knew how to try and fix it, it wasn't a big deal.
I have also been able to turn off Smart Start, since I was told how to get into the clinical menu.
That really freaked me out at first - I didn't know it existed - so it seemed like the machine had a mind of it's own.

I have another question, but I'll search for a relevant thread first....

hi danny,
gently playing with reseating the internal seals in the water tank has worked every time for me...
Its recurred a couple of times - I should keep some stats on percentage of nights.
The main annoyance is that the noise doesn't occur at the lower startup pressure, so I have to be hard asleep and needing the higher air flow - and then it starts....
I have not been running warmup - is there a reason why you need to?
once again, when it occurred last night, the water tank was not misted inside with moisture (plenty of water in the tank), so I think that the air leak is keeping the humidity from rising as it ought as well....
persevere,
best wishes

Hi all,
I am two weeks in with the Resmed Airsense 10. Switched to nasal pillows after a miserable 4 days with the FF mask and I'm liking them much better. Working it the best I can because I feel it is helping. But the whining with my inhalation began a few nights ago and is cutting in to my progress. Grateful for this forum and I can see how it could be coming from around the water container. Still, I don't see any clear cut solutions....aside from trying to fit it in the machine more tightly (?), and asking for another machine. Am I missing something?

Probably not missing anything. Did the noise start after you filled the tank? If you check all three seals and re-seat your tank and the noise is still there, you may want to look into getting a new one. At least call your DME about it. The other area that can cause noise is the intake filter. Check to see that it isn't clogged and it is seated correctly.
