ResMed CPAP Repair

The ResMed CPAP machines we can repair are the units listed below.

  • S8 Compact
  • S8 Escape 
  • S8 Elite
  • S8 Auto
  • S8 VPAP
  • S9 Escape
  • S9 Elite
  • S9 Auto
  • S9 VPAP
  • Airsense 10 Elite
  • Airsense 10 Auto
  • Aircurve 10 VPAP

The ResMed S8 CPAP line of machines were made starting in 2005 and continuing through 2009.  The early models had issues with smoking and a crackling sound from where the power cord plugged into the cpap.  This was caused from constant pulling on and off the plug which will break loose the internal connections.  If you experience this issue with your S8 CPAP, immediately stop using it as it may be a fire hazard.  This issue is something we can repair.  On later units, this problem was remedied with a more robust input design.  

How about this?  Your S8 CPAP once plugged in, the display will light up, but when you try and turn it on, you get no air.  After so many years of pressing the start / stop button on/ off, the keypad will eventually wear out and no longer respond to your presses.  It will take more and more tries to turn your unit on and off. One day it won't respond at all.  People eventually end up pulling the plug in the back to just to get them to turn off.  We can repair this as well.

If you have a humidifier attached to the front of the machine and sometimes forget to remove it in the morning after getting up, it will cause problems down the line.  The issue is it stays there all day with water in it.  If this happens time and time again, water will eventually evaporate just enough to go back into your ResMed S8 CPAP's internal components.  When there is enough damage done, the CPAP will develop some symptoms.  One problem is pressure fluctuation.  The air pressure will increase or decrease  randomly or be too high or too low.  Your unit may no longer have auto on or auto off when the mask is removed or put on.  The CPAP may become louder or noisier as well.  These problems can be repaired.

Sometimes the ResMed S8 screen will not light up at all and the display will be blank.  That means there is no power going through the CPAP.  There could have a been a power surge or the unit was plugged into an incorrect power source.  The unit is dead and cannot be used. This doesn't mean it is to be thrown away and is junk.  Give us a call.  We can service the CPAP to function just like new.

I have this exact problem on my S8 Elite II CPAP: How about this? Your S8 CPAP once plugged in, the display will light up, but when you try and turn it on, you get no air. After so many years of pressing the start / stop button on/ off, the keypad will eventually wear out and no longer respond to your presses. It will take more and more tries to turn your unit on and off. One day it won't respond at all. People eventually end up pulling the plug in the back to just to get them to turn off. We can repair this as well. Can you please let me know an average estimate for this kind of repair? Thank you, Mike

My ResMed Airsense 10 machine fell off the table last night and water spilled from the humidifier into the cpap. The machine now makes a whining noise when I breathe in and out. Can you repair this? If so, how soon can it be done? I am local and can bring it by anytime. Please help as this noise is driving me crazy and I need to sleep! Thanks.

Hello, Yes, the noise can be repaired on your ResMed Airsense CPAP. When a CPAP falls off the nightstand, water from the humidifier can get back into the motor and cause damage to the bearings inside it. When this happens, the blower motor will need replacement as the bearings alone cannot be changed out due it it being a sealed unit. Please check your email. Thank you.

I my Escape S8 works fine except the power input is loose and I hear cracking. The power button is worn but still works. After reading “The ResMed S8 CPAP line of machines were made starting in 2005 and continuing through 2009. The early models had issues with smoking and a crackling sound from where the power cord plugged into the cpap. This was caused from constant pulling on and off the plug which will break loose the internal connections. If you experience this issue with your S8 CPAP, immediately stop using it as it may be a fire hazard. This issue is something we can repair. On later units, this problem was remedied with a more robust input design.” I’m stopping using it but I’d like to get it repaired.

I want to use my ResMed Auto set 2 for camping etc. using the special adapter and a freedom battery. I plugged everything in and it appears the power plug on the back is not working. The other 2 pronged plug for ac is ok. The dc plug must be broken inside because it should work. Can you help me out with this repair.

With that particular set up, you do not use the DC input on the unit. A special AC/DC adapter will be needed for your battery. You can then plug your CPAP using the original power cord into the adapter that goes into the battery.

My ResMed AirSense 10 CPAP is making a loud whining sound when I breathe in and out. I can't sleep with it that way. I changed to a new mask, hose and air filters, but it made no difference. My local CPAP supplier said I need a new machine. I cannot afford to buy a new one!

If you are not cleaning the water chamber out on a daily basis as you should and leaving it in the cpap machine during the daytime, this will typically cause the issue. The reason is because the moisture from the water chamber will get back into the motor and components and cause corrosion.

My CPAP start/stop button is not responding all the time. Can you fix it.

Yes, we can repair the button. The ResMed Airsense 10 and ResMed S8 are units we have found power switches to have issues where they either simply wear out over time or break and the device becomes unresponsive.

I have ResMed Air Sense 10, for the past 2 weeks it has been making a cracking sound, wither I am using it or when I am not. This is waking my husband up with this sound, I have just had this machine 1 year. How can this be fixed?

Crackling sounds may be happening because there is water forming in your tubing and mask during the night. This called rainout. You may be hearing a bubbling or gurgling noise in your tubing. It can be corrected by increasing the temperature in your room, lowering the humidifier setting on the CPAP or tucking the hose under your blanket.

I have a ResMed Escape with a Humidifier last night it gave this great burst of air and just stopped but the light is still on in the unit. How long would it take to fix it?

If we have the part that is needed to repair your CPAP, it would take 1-2 business days to repair.

I have a Resmed Elite S8 bought in 2006. I have handled it really well and gently. It started to make a whining noise 4 days ago that interrupts my sleep significantly. It could be the bearings. How can you help me, please and if it can be repaired, how much am I looking at? Thanks
