ResMed S9 TOTAL RESET

Postby torontoCPAPguy on Sun Feb 03, 2013 10:10 am

Is there any way to do a TOTAL HARD RESET on my S9? The pressure is running on the low side and I believe it could be an electronics glitch. I returned to my old S8 Escape set to the same pressure and it nearly blew my eyeballs out.... on the S9 Autoset it is very low (pressure) and I have to suck to get enough air. Not right.

Am going to get a manometer to have some solid empirical data but the deficiency is so obvious.

Machine purchased just over two years ago online. Can it be taken to ANY ResMed dealer with receipt for repair?

Fall colours. One of God's gifts. Life is fragile and short, savour every moment no matter what your problems may be. These stunning fall colours from my first outing after surviving a month on life support due to H1N1.

I'm probably stating the obvious, but check the pressure with the air filter removed and with no humidifier. Unplug the machine for several minutes.

You can make a really quick and dirty manometer by sticking the end of hose into a bucket of water and slowly raising the end until bubbles dome out. How far below the water in centimeters is the pressure in cmH2O. Be careful, it will tend to blow water everywhere, especially if you use something like a glass of water.
