Woke up to burning smell, ran out of water
RE: Woke up to burning smell, ran out of water
Periodically I've let the humidification chamber run dry. When I do I wake in the morning with a mild burning sensation in both nostrils. My nose produces copious watery secretions for a day or 2. This is a mistake I don't want to repeat.

I've experienced similar smells. I found Resmed AirSense 10 humidifiers the worst for quickly drying out. However, the bigger issue here is given how expensive these machines are, why don't they have an autosensing dryness warning indictator and shut down the heater when it senses no water. Geesh.
