So your CPAP or Bilevel machine is broken and needs repair? Let’s first talk about some of the most common issues people have with their CPAP machines. “Service required” showing up on Philips Respironics 50 / 60 Series or Respironics M-Series CPAP machine displays are probably what we currently encounter the most out of all CPAP repair inquiries. For the Philips Respironics 50 / 60 Series line of CPAPs, when you try and power the unit up, the motor will briefly attempt to spin and then stop. It will cycle on /off several times and then the display will flash “service required” along with a beeping chime. This typically means the blower motor will need replacement even though it seemed to operate completely normal the previous night. When this same symptom occurs on a Respironics M-Series CPAP, the majority of the time the component which regulates air pressure is corrupt. Replacement of the component will be needed to correct the issue. Whenever there is a loud noise such as scraping or roughness coming from the CPAP, it is caused by the motor as it’s the only moving component in CPAP machines. These noises are typically caused from a sudden impact such as a machine falling off a nightstand and hitting the floor. It can also be from either external dust or moisture contamination from an attached humidifier. Normal wear and tear on motors will be problematic over the years of nightly use as well.

Feel free to post a question or comment about CPAP repairs or your CPAP that is malfunctioning.
