Hi Nancy

I'm not familiar with the Disetronic, but can tell you the reason I have to 
reprime my MM if I take the cartridge out and then reinsert it: There are 
these little "arms" that push against the plunger on the cartridge and they 
have to be "tightened up" against the top of the plunger again.
