Did you tell Minimed that your Serter broke and the problem only 
started after you had to insert manually?  They should have offered a 
new Serter.  I've gotten an extra Quick-Serter from them (after my 
original started sticking within a couple of weeks of pumping) and 
I've gotten a Sil-Serter from them.  I had major problems with the 
Quick-Sets cannulas kinking but it happened with both manual and 
Serter insertions.
