I set everything up in my gazebo today, turned on the oxy on my torch, turned on my oxycon and I had the orange low oxygen light and the red service light and the oxycon screaming at me. I thought it might be the torch at first so I took the hose out of the oxycon but still it screamed. I opened it up to look for leaks and can't find any leaks. I tried cleaning the black filter at the back but I don't really know what else to look for, although I can feel it sucking air in but it doesn't seem to be putting much out. I think there might be a blockage in the outflow area but no idea how to get in to look. Any ideas before I phone martin on Tuesday?

Try lifting it up and dropping it firmly from a height of 2-3 inches.  It burps them, and has been known to solve a few issues.

It sounds patronising but you have checked that the power cable is fully plugged in, haven't you? They have an internal battery which will go off if the power lead isn't fully in. Doesn't sound likely if it is pulling in air but maybe worth a check. if it clearly isn't this my only thought is that it could be that the fan isn't operating. depending on the model this is usually located at the base of the unit. It MAY just have worked its way loose. maybe worth checking?

Take it indoors and plug it in. If it works then its the extension you have it plugged into thats the problem.  Smiley
