need DME for replacement control knob for S9 AutoSet

Post by smjason » Thu May 18, 2017 12:48 pm

I have managed to lose the little knob on my ResMed S9 Autoset. I have not had any success finding a DME who has a replacement. Does anyone have any suggestions for where I might find this part?

Thanks!

well, yeah, otherwise one couldn't take 'em apart :D

that said, any knob that fits would work.

On occasion, I have seen a pair of Vice-Grips used in place of a knob,
provided the shaft protrudes from the panel enough.
We had a TV with that solution, and the radio in one of our earlier beaters.
Upside---if you need the wrench for something else, it is right there!

You could ask secondwindcpap.com if they have a spare knob. They deal with used CPAPs, so they may have an old, junk machine that they can steal a knob from.

Did you find a knob? I could come up with a used one if you are still looking.
