I have a ResMed S10 that I've been using for a while. Recently the machine started showing a mask leak when stopped. Took the mask off the tube and blocked the tube. I felt the whole length of the tube, the exit port, and the area around the water tank. I felt no leaks. My pressure is set relatively low at 5.5 psi. Still showed mask leak when I shut down the. Any ideas?

How do you know the mask is leaking? The best way to check how the mask is doing for leaks is to look at the data using OSCAR. Here is an example of a leak rate chart. It shows one period of time when the leak rate is over the red line.

I know my mask is not leaking, I get angry red face saying MASK LEAK when I shut down my S10. My SD card failed. Have put in new one. Read my post.

I'm sorry, but I can't really understand what you posted about. When you get your SD card working I would suggest you download OSCAR and use it to plot your data. Then it would be easier to understand what is happening. Most leaks are due to leaks between your mask and your nose or face.
