I've been using the OmniPod for about half a year now and I just experienced the first time the pod got stuck sounding its constant screaming alarm. The PDM apparently failed to communicate with the pod to silence the alarm and I remembered reading a reference in the manual on how to disable the pod alarm manually if the case ever arose. Well, I found the section in the manual entitled "Manual Shut-off of a Hazard Alarm" and it indicated sticking the end of a paper clip into the 'manual alarm shut-off port' located to the right of the insulin fill port. Well, on the pod, there's nothing except hard, solid plastic where the manual indicates the alarm port should be. Thus, I was unable to silence the alarm. I ended up putting the pod into an old peanut butter jar, screwing on the lid, and putting it into the refrigerator to muffle the annoying alarm. Don't know how many days (weeks?) I will have to wait until the battery finally wears out. So, am I missing something or is there no longer a way to manually disable a pod's continuously screaming alarm? Thankfully, this happened while I was home - don't know what I would have done if out and about at the time.
