  • Reason
    Respironics california, llc ("respironics") voluntarily performs a patch for any non-invasive philips v60 fan made before september 15, 2015, requiring replacement of the internal fan cable. respironics started distributing v60 fans in 2009. all v60 models made before september 15, 2015 are subject to this revision. v60 fans manufactured on or after september 15, 2015 have a different internal cable, so this correction does not apply to them and there is no need to do anything about them.
