If using a Breg Polar Care Cold Therapy unit with a detachable Cold Therapy Pad, it is possible to drain the pad between uses. To drain the pad between uses, hold the Cold Therapy Pad upright with the hose pointed toward the ground. Depress the black plunger and allow the water to drain out of the pad. 3. You may disconnect the Cold Therapy Pad from the unit without removing the pad from the affected area by depressing the silver tabs on the hose coupling and gently pulling the hoses apart. The Breg Polar Care Cold Therapy Pad and unit will seal itself and will not leak. Note: Some dripping during release is normal. 4. DO NOT RUN PUMP WITHOUT WATER! The pump in this unit is designed to run with water. Running the unit without water will cause permanent damage to the pump. Unplug unit before removing lid.  CLEANING, MAINTENANCE & SERVICE  After use, drain and dry pump with a soft cloth. Warm water and mild detergent may be used occasionally to clean the pump and tubes. There are no serviceable parts. Contact Breg Customer Care if replacement parts are needed.  Avoid flammables and oxidizers Do not use in places with flammable vapors or gasses (for example, flammable anesthetics), high oxygen concentrations, or other oxidizers (for example, nitrous oxide).  Pump not running Water not flowing to the pad Pad is not getting cold  Start the product Use only the transformer provided with the Breg Polar Care Cold Therapy unit, to meet the requirements of UL 60601-1. With dry hands, connect the transformer to the electrical connection located on the top of the cooler. Next, plug the transformer into an appropriate electrical outlet. The unit will automatically start running at this point. Unplug to stop the product when not in use Unplugging the Polar Care unit turns it off. Always unplug immediately after use. Never leave it plugged in while unattended. Electromagnetic Interference This Polar Care unit may cause electromagnetic or other interference with other electrical devices. To check whether the Polar Care unit is interfering with another device, unplug the Polar Care unit. If this corrects the problem, move the Polar Care unit or other device, or use an outlet on a different circuit.  Symbols used on the Polar Care Unit Symbol  1. Make sure the transformer is plugged into the wall outlet. 2. Confirm that the ice and water are filled to the indicated levels. 3. Make sure there are no kinks in the pad. 4.
