Re: [IPk] Repeated occlusion alarms



 Have you tried a new batch of reservoirs? I had this problem once with out of
date cartridges where the lubricant wasn't lubricating and so the plunger was
stickng. Could be dodgy batch? It might also be a pump fault causing the plunger
to stick? Very frustrating.
