Troubleshooting Issues

Alarms and Troubleshooting
• Residual Volume Low- Level of fluid in the reservoir is low. Three beeps will sound. A new cassette should be installed.
• Reservoir Volume Empty- reservoir volume has reached 0.0 mL. A two-tone alarm will sound. Press NEXT or STOP/START to silence the alarm. Install a new cassette, if appropriate.
• Low Battery- The batteries are low, but pump is operable. Three two-tone beeps will sound every 5 minutes. Change batteries soon.
• Battery Depleted- The batteries are depleted and cannot operate the pump. Install new batteries immediately.
• Battery Removed, Pump won’t Run- With AC adapter attached, batteries have been removed while the pump was running, or you have tried to start the pump with depleted batteries. A two tone alarm will sound. Install new batteries.
• High Pressure- High pressure is being caused by an occlusion in the fluid path between the pump and the client. A two tone alarm will sound. Remove the obstruction to resume operation, or press STOP/START or NEXT to stop the pump and silence the alarm for two minutes, then remove the occlusion and restart the pump.
• Upstream Occlusion- Fluid is not flowing from the reservoir to the pump. Check for a kink or air bubble in the tubing between the reservoir and the pump. Remove the occlusion to resume operation. A two tone alarm will sound. Press STOP/START or NEXT to stop the pump and silence the alarm for two minutes, then remove the occlusion and restart the pump.
• Current Pump Status- The cassette is not aligned with the pump, or is damaged, or a malfunction of the pump sensor(s) is occurring. A two beep (long-short) alarm will sound. Reposition the pump to silence the alarm. If repositioning the pump does not silence the alarm within two minutes, the pump will display “No Disposable, Clamp Tubing.”
• Air in Line Detected- There is air in the fluid path. A two tone alarm will sound. Press NEXT or STOP/START to silence the alarm. Make sure the tubing is threaded in the air detector properly. If the fluid path contains air, close the clamps, disconnect from the client and prime the fluid path.
• Stopped- The pump is stopped. Three beeps will sound every 5 minutes. Start the pump, if appropriate.
• Remote Dose Cord Removed- Remote dose cord was removed while the pump was running. If the pump is stopped, a two beep alarm will sound. If the pump is running, a two tone alarm will sound.
• Programming Incomplete- A two tone alarm will sound when starting the pump. Verify all programming screens by pressing ENTER/CLEAR before moving to the next screen or starting the pump.
• Value Not Saved- A value was not saved by pressing ENTER/CLEAR. Press NEXT to resume programming.
• Error- An error has occurred. A two tone alarm will sound. Remove the pump from service.
• No Message Displayed- The pump was running when the batteries were removed or the batteries were removed within 15 seconds after stopping the pump. A two tone alarm will sound. Batteries must be reinstalled.
• No Disposable, Clamp Tubing- The cassette was removed, or is not aligned with the pump, or is damaged, or a malfunction of the pump sensor(s) is occurring. A two beep (long-short) alarm will sound. Clamp the tubing immediately. Press STOP/START or NEXT to silence the alarm.
