Where should the Invacare Homefill System be used?
The compressor should be at least three inches away from walls, draperies or furniture to ensure sufficient air flow. Avoid placing the compressor next to heaters, radiators or hot air registers. DO NOT use in a closet. The compressor should sit on a hard flat stable surface, such as a table.
Never block the air openings of the product or place it on a soft surface, such as a bed or couch, where the air opening may be blocked. If the compressor has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, if it has been dropped or damaged, or submersed in water, call a qualified technician for examination and repair. The unit is provided with double insulation and has no serviceable parts

- Set the regulator flow dial on the cylinder to Off.
- Remove the cylinder and connector fillport covers (if present).
- Momentarily push DOWN on the outer ring (sleeve) of the connector fillport until GREEN dots are visible to reset the connector.
