My DeVilbiss Intellipap machine makes a squeaking, whistling noise mostly when I inhale. Sometimes is does it automatically. It is bothersome when I am falling asleep. Not sure if the machine needs repair. It is not in the hose or mask. Any thoughts?

Welcome to the site! Try re-seating your water tank; a poor seal can cause this type noise. In addition, if there is a filter on your machine, ensure it is clean. Not having ever heard a DeVilbiss machine, couldn't say what level of noise is normal. Good luck.
