Dreamwear new pillow whistle?

Postby UMTerp on Mon Jan 16, 2017 7:36 am

I starting using a new Dreamwear mask and pillow last night after using my previous one for about a year (changed pillows during that time). Last night I couldn't seem to adjust it without getting a whistle sound.
It seems like the sound is coming from the small exhale port in the front of the pillow. Has anyone else had this problem? Suggestions?

TIA!

The only times I've had that problem were when something (usually the sheet) got too close to the vent.

A year later and I, too, am having the same problem. Did you ever find a solution?

I've only had this problem with the nasal mask. It was the vent at the front of the nose piece and a quick adjustment by pushing on the vent solved the problem.

You just pushed in it? Nothing else? Thanks!

I sort of played with the gap and both pushed it in and widened it as well. It worked but I'm not sure how. I did this based on the premise that the whistling was being caused by too narrow a gap
