Re: Sticky: Phillips Respironics recent recall notice discussion thread

The air intake does not either go through or across the foam. The foam is strictly for sound proofing and rests on the bottom of the machine at least an inch or more from the intake channel. I took my oldest (2010) machine apart. I disagree with your assessment. The foam is the floor of the air pat...

Your photos show the air output, not the intake.

My photos showed the intake, which goes over foam along the entire pathway.
yes...I believe you are right about my photos being of the output and not the intake...my bad
thanks for setting me straight

In the next few days I will take my own Phillips System One apart and take photos to examine whether or not the foam is directly involved with the air-intake. I will upload the photos. also, in reply to the last few replies to my comments: the foam does not "surround" the intake channel...it blanke...
