[Equipment] AirSense 10 Water Chamber INLET Seal
#1
AirSense 10 Water Chamber INLET Seal
I have the Resmed Airsense 10 with the Heated Humidifier. I have replaced the Outlet Gasket assembly but I want to replace the INLET Gasket also. Is there somewhere you can point me to to get the INLET Gasket/Seal? Now that I have changesd the outlet seal, The INLET Seal sometimes makes noise and I have to open and close it to make it stop. Help please!

Icfield;
     If it is the silicone seal on the water tank You need to replace the Water Tank ..
It is permanently attached to the Tank ..
The other seal is replaced with the Outlet Tube ..
It is also permanently attached to the Tube ..
     Good Luck ..   Steve

I'm sorry I thought it was part of the water tank ..

I've replaced the water tanks before and also swapped lids. The seal is not part of the tank or lid. It is housed inside the machine next to the Outlet adapter that I just replaced.  But thanks for the reply.

From what I understand, the air inlet gasket (seal) is not replaceable on the A10.

Perhaps this post will explain.

As far as I can tell (from disassembly videos), the inlet seal is actually the outlet of the pneumatic block (fan assembly) surround. It is a custom part, and ResMed doesn't sell it separately; nor do the sell the assemblies to end users.

Then only solution I have found is to smear the gasket with silicone grease. I've used plumbers grease and tuning slide grease.

Well that answers that! Thank you for the reply and the link. Poor design, and I see why the change to the A11.
