The ResMed S9 CPAP machine series was roughly available between the years 2010-15.  Its predecessor was the popular line called S8 series.  The S8 was a very compact unit due to having a robust motor, individual operating components, and a built in power supply vs the S9 which now has an external transformer. When the S9 came out with its non-medical design, color LCD display and silver chassis it was considered very advanced for the time. 

The Resmed S9 CPAP redesign addressed some issues the S8 had.  The main problem was during the mid 2000's there was a recall for the S8 units having a faulty internal power supply that could lead to a potential fire.  This was updated in later versions of the S8.  The S9 simply used an external power supply instead.  It was more convenient if there was a power supply issue by simply replacing it rather than having to send the CPAP in for repair.  Although ResMeds choice of having an external power supply was more for convenience, it unfortunately was not very durable.  The problem was the S9 power supply plug itself had 3 male prongs which were prone to break if handled improperly.  People can be rough with their machines especially when traveling having to constantly plug and unplug the unit.  If you ever see an error on your S9 referencing  to  "check the 90 watt power supply", look for broken pins in the plug.  We can take care of those embedded pins for you.

ResMed updated the power switch by using an actual mechanical switch under the power button.  The S8 was and is still notorious for the start/stop buttons wearing out due to using contact style controls (we can repair them).  Another issue the S9 helped resolve was water intrusion from the humidifier. S8 units when used with a humidifier had more cases of getting water damage than the newer S9.   From our experience,  the S9 has little issue with water getting back into the main unit and damaging components like motors or control boards. We have seen ResMed S9s have water damage, but it is rather rare.  

Some people are not very diligent about replacing the air filters on these units or lose the air filter cover completely.  This will lead to dust contamination rather quickly.  Whistling or motor loudness will increase over time.  You will then need a replacement once the louder sound cannot be tolerated any longer.  We can repair your ResMed S9 CPAP with a new motor.  If you do change your filters on a regular basis the motor is designed to last about 24000 hours of usage.  That computes to over 8 years of running every night for 8 hours a night!  Once you hit that 24000 hour mark your machine will display "motor exceeded life - call service".  We can replace the S9 blower and this will correct the issue.

Dust and or moisture contamination can damage the flow sensors on the ResMed S9 CPAP.  You may experience the unit no longer can turn itself on/off, inconsistent air pressures or just waking up not feeling rested anymore due improper air pressure volume.  We can repair your S9 CPAP by replacing the main control board and calibrating it accordingly to factory specifications.   

Have you ever knocked off or pulled your machine off the nightstand by accident or dropped it while juggling (well, maybe not from juggling)? If so, the round control knob on top may have broken off.  This is not uncommon to see when we examine ResMed S9 CPAPs that come in for repair / service.  There is a metal shaft which is part of the main control board that is designed to hold the knob in place.  If this shaft has sheered off, the entire board will need to be replaced unfortunately as any setting changes on the unit will not be possible if not repaired properly.
  
Last but not least, there are S9 humidifier and tubing problems.  Lets start out with heated tubing or standard hoses.  People can experience a "blocked tubing" error on their ResMed S9 CPAP machine during usage. "There's nothing blocking it" is what patients tell us.  We have seen hoses that have been stretched out, kinked or even with the slightest deformity in shape cause this issue.  Try replacing the hose first.  If that does not resolve the problem, then it most likely it is a flow sensor issue.  It would be nice for us the be able to replace the flow sensor itself like on the older S8, but the S9's flow sensor is part of the main control board unfortunately.  We can repair it either way.

Whenever water is noticed where it shouldn't be, i.e. wet outside the chamber, replace it ASAP.  Lots of times leaks will not show up right away. So filling it up to test for leaks immediately is not always accurate. The heat from the humidifier plate cools and heats during the night and will cause intermittent expansion to the water chamber. This is further exasperated when the tank becomes dry during usage (never under-fill).  So again, if you notice water has made its way outside of the tank, replace it ASAP.  

We have people inquire all the time regarding not getting enough moisture from their S9's humidifier and not heating up adequately.  They will wake up being dry and notice the water chamber is either cold or not using any water like it did before when new.  The S9 humidifier is an adaptive system.   It has sensors that will adjust according to the ambient room, your body and machine settings.  There are many variables to consider and the amount of moisture you get nightly can and will vary night to night and season to season.  Looking at the amount of water that was used is not an indicator the humidifier is not functioning correctly.  We will create an in depth post for this topic in the future.  Ultimately a quick test to see if the humidifier can heat up is to simply use the pre-heat feature on your device (read manual)  and feel the bottom of the water chamber to see if it becomes warm to the touch.  If not, replace the humidifier.  We do not repair humidifiers for the ResMed S9 because it not is cost effective to do so.

I am located in Northern Nevada and I hope you can help me..... My machine has been great until last night. It makes a sound (not my breathing sound, but it is coincides with my breathing!) that increases in volume as the pressure ramps up. (kind of a machine wheezing sound) I have checked all connections, tried another tube from the machine to the nasal mask, Air Fit N20, tubing with no change.The machine works as usual, except for the noise!!! Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!

Any wheezing noises coming directly from the machine are normally due to a bad motor.

Issue with this S9 unit is that the SD Card does not work so I remove the card and the machine works again. The on and off button needs to be pressed to do three times before he either goes on or off. Other than that it works fine.

Corrupt SD cards are known to cause boot up issues. Simply remove them if you have no use for them. If you have problems with the CPAP not turning on after pressing the start button, the motor or control board may be faulty.

Accidentally dropped machine in a sink full of water Tried to dry it out but it does not work at all. Local dealer xmed says it cannot be fixed and must buy a new one. Insurance will not pay for a new one so must get this fixed. Thanks.

Once you have a significant amount of water contamination, the unit usually is not worth repairing.

Stops blowing air about 10 secs after it starts and then tells me to check power cord. One of the 3 pins on the power cord is broken off and stuck in the unit. I need the pin removed and a replacement cord.

My faithful Resmed "Sullivan V Elite" accidentally had water leaked into the air exit hole. I turned it off immediately and tried to drain all the water out. I haven't turned it on again to test it, thinking it would be better if a pro opened the case to examine the condition of all the internal parts that would have been affected. (I was at a motel and had forgotten to bring the tray device that the humidifier full of water clips into to prevent it from moving. The hose pulled the plastic humidifier over the edge of the nightstand and water dumped out into the hose and back into the CPAP.) This machine has been with me since the beginning and is a faithful workhorse that I totally trust. I am REALLY interested in having it checked out and made operational again. I am absolutely not interested in a "newer" machine loaded with chips. I've spent too long in the industry as an insider to need something fancy you can't trust. I am hoping you can rise to the occasion to rescue this old lady with her trusted antique that's never let her down.

I have a Resmed S9 that is probably close to 9 years old. Still works, but not as well as it should. I would like to have it fixed up if it is worth it. Will a refurbished machine this old last for a few more years or am I better off getting rid of it?
Advans CPAP Staff
Date: 3/19/2021 1:10:48 PM
We can place a new control board and motor in the unit if you like, but the cost will go beyond 50% the cost for a new device. By doing so, you will have basically a brand new machine functionality wise that should last another 5-7+ years without having go through another sleep study to get a new device. There are pros and cons to doing this, but it all comes down to what you are trying to accomplish.

I have a Resmed S9 Elite and I have had working intermittently, but it shuts down and I get a "hose blocked, check hose" error. I have to disconnect & reconnect power to get it working again, but only stays on for approximately 15 minutes & shuts off, before needing be powered off again. It's a vicious cycle. I have a new unit on the way, but was hoping there's a way to keeping it working till it gets here. I need sleep. Only had 4-5 hours since Monday night it now Wednesday night.

If the hose does not have any issues, the main control board will need replacement. We can repair the unit if you like one as a back up.

Hi! I have an S9. My machine recently shuts down in the middle of my sleep. I had thought that my pressure was no long good enough and maybe I’m starting to need a higher pressure level. And the I was now starting to stop breathing during the night and the machine would recognize that no breath were taken for a long period and the machine would automatically shut down. But I then started to notice the machine getting louder as I breath in and out. After examining the machine closer it sounded like it was leaking from the humidifier side. So I removed it and tried using just the main Breathing side. One i turned on it was the one that was sounding like it was leaking internally and a message cam up saying excessive pressure leak and the machine would automatically shut down.
Advans CPAP Staff

If the CPAP side is leaking air, they may be a faulty seal somewhere in the device. We can service it if it is a S9 model.

Your may want to try to make sure it was re-assembled correctly. If it is, then try a new hose.

Hi again! I have taken apart my resmed S9 and completely cleaned examined and cleaned everything and put it back together. The machine sounds like when I first got it. So quiet that you can even hear the machine blower anymore. I guess when the internat foam gets full of dust the motor has to work twice as hard. I then did a factory reset and re- entered my settings. But noticed that when I connect the humidifier it didn’t want to work properly. Noticing that when I click the slim hose into position that it wouldn’t choose the slim tube or would even give you an option to choose. But the when I backed it off from the connection then it would display the tube option again. So for it to work with the slim hose I would back it off from the locking position. Is it the humidifier connection that is faulty or do I need to replace the slim hose?

Stopping in the middle of the night normally is in relation to a mask leak. Pressure issues are related to the control board.

I have had my Resmed s9 sta Ivan since 1994. It runs just fine considering I use it 24/7 in order to breath with muscular dystrophy. The only problem I have is the amount of time it takes before blowing air. I also have an Resmed 10 air curve that starts blowing air immediately upon turning it on. What can I do to my Resmed s9 to make it start immediately like my Resmed Air Curve

I was moving my machine and I started to drop it on the bed. It got tilted and some of the water from the reservoir entered the machine. Now it sounds like a small electric motor or fan runs continuously and it sounds like it has an air leak inside the machine that will increase or decrease in volume. I have changed the reservoir tank and all off the hoses and mask the noise did not go away.

Resmed S9 Auto have been using it for last 5-7 yrs but now the airflow pressure increases during the the night (after a few hrs) and does not decrease. It remains at level 10. In the middle of the night I have to restart the machine to ensure the airflow pressure is tolerable. Earlier the pressure was calibrating ( increasing and decreasing) as per requirement but now it only increases. could you repair or its a software issue?

Hello, The Ramp feature on my ResMed S9 Elite has stopped working. It just blows at full pressure right away. Everything else works perfectly still. It was manufactured in Dec 2015, and it has 14,700 hours on it. Please advise. Thanks

I have a ResMed S9 I believe I got in late 2012. I used it for a couple of years and stopped due to other health issues. I started back on it in 2018. I turned it off early this morning and it will not turn back on. When I pressed the on/off button, it immediately went completely dark. There are no lights on it at all. What might be wrong with it?

It is either a faulty power supply or control board.

Hi, My S9 recently passed 24K hours and got the dreaded message. Noticed 2 days ago when it's running when I breathe out there is significantly resistance and increases the air noise coming from the mask. Could it be blower and control board? Cost? Turn around time for repair?

Something may be clogged in the air path restricting flow. We can service it within 1-2 days. Cost will depend on what is found upon examination.

My Resmed S9 VPAP has "exceeded motor life" but still working well. The humidifier quit working so I bought a new one, but it does not seem to recognize the new humidifier. In order to get it to work, I had to disconnect the power, disconnect the two parts, then reconnect and plug back in. That worked for 2 weeks, now it is no longer working and I'm getting a "humidifier fault, replace humidifier" message again, and disconnecting / reconnecting does not resolve. Suggestions?

There may be a poor electrical connection with the humidifier on the machine side. Examine the plug from the humidifier. Get it the humidifier replaced under warranty.

Mon S9 Autoset Resmed vient d'arrêter de fonctionner. Le bouton on/off clignote et aussi la lumière de l'humidificateur. Quel pourrait être la solution au problème. Problème semble identique à celui mentionné plus haut Timothée GreeneDate : 10/02/2022RépondreMa machine 9s a cessé de fonctionner, le bouton clignote et le voyant situé sur le côté du réservoir d'eau clignote. Le voyant du bloc d'alimentation s'allume jusqu'à ce que vous le branchiez à la machine, puis il s'éteint. Les travaux de réparation de la machine sont couverts par l'assurance.

It will be okay to use, but be aware the motor is at the end of its life expectancy and should be replaced.

I get an error “high pressure fault”, contact service provider. I have replaced the the white filter in the back of the unit and the hose. But when I put the mask on, this error appears. Can this be fixed?

Resmed S9 Vpap Auto which has been trouble free for many years. Recently I noticed that it would not shut off automatically when I removed the mask after waking up. However, It does start and ramp up perfectly. I can use the on off switch but the auto shut off is very convenient. This machine has my attention and I would like to have it repaired or refurbished.

I have the same scenario as almost everybody else here. My RESMED S9 is displaying the error message that the motor has exceeded its lifetime. I understand that the cost to replace with a new motor is $185 and I would like to ship it to you. How long does it take to get a new motor installed? How long is the new motor warranted for? What is your address for shipment. Thank you. Joe Pereira
