James, I used to have one, but I spent so much time fighting it that I gave up and sold it. I would go online and check out sleep apnea mouthpieces (that typically treat snoring, but work for apnea as well!) They work pretty well, are much less expensive and much quieter, and much less invasive!!!! Good luck!!
Just so you know there is a recall on this and may end up with a new one... read below
Respironics, the manufacturer of the Respironics REMstar Heated Humidifier, has received complaints of failures of the AC inlet connector on the REMstar Heated Humidifiers manufactured between December 2001 and April 2003. A small number of these failures have resulted in thermal damage to the humidifier enclosure, and there is a remote possibility that a thermal failure could result in the ignition of materials external to the device. For this reason, Respironics is asking that you remove the humidifier from its power source. You may continue using your CPAP device.
Respironics has decided to take voluntary action to mitigate the risk of failure. This action includes only the model 1005792, U1005792, R1005792, SC1005792, AC1005792, and 1007861.
This voluntary action is classified as a medical device recall, and is being conducted with the knowledge of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
WHAT TO DO:
Call Stericycle, Inc at 877-574-5038 or 317-275-7667.
The sputtering may be caused by a calcium build up the water system. To solve the problem do the following.
Turn the unit OFF and unplug it.
Empty any remaining water from the tank.
Mix a 50/50 solution of Distilled White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour solution into the tank and allow it to sit for 1 - 2 hours.
Plug the humidifier in and turn it ON. Allow it to run until the tank is only half full. If the sputtering has not stopped, turn the unit OFF and allow the unit to soak over night.
The next morning, turn the unit On and run for 20 minutes. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Pour out the remaining solution and refill with Bottled Distilled Water. Run the unit for an hour. This will flush out the lines. After that, it should run normally.
I would highly recommend using Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rather than Tap Water.
yes it should be bypass but solenoid could be trying to open but the voltage to it may be to low if you have 24v ac power at the 2 small wires. but to change shut down power to furnace and water to humidifier.you loosen the 2 compression nuts unwire they cant be reversed so dont worry then 2 mounting screws then reverse to install
