The 432 is way louder than the quattro and in the middle of the night, have asleep, it's easy to convince yourself you are not going to be able to breathe because all the air is going out the vent and not into your mask. I'm hoping it's supposed to be that noisy because there's nothing to be done about it until after the holiday weekend.

They told me to download the email from them and bring it to my DME who is to replace the valve. Just for fun, since this DME is not a good one, I think I'll bring in the mask this afternoon to show them the problem. When the RT tells me that it's supposed to be releasing air, I'll hand her the letter.....
No, the air is not suppose to come out of the holes in the valve when the machine is on. According to the manufacture. They have changed something in the valve in the last 2 years. I'm having the same problem with many valves that I've tried. I'm using my 2 year old valve that works fine.

Is air supposed to blow out of it like crazy?
