- Insert new battery. The positive mark is on the top above the slide. The negative mark is on the bottom below the slide. The positive on the battery must match the positive on the pump. You will hear a beep when the battery is inserted correctly. If the battery is inserted incorrectly the screen will stay blank and you will not hear a beep.
- Slide the door in place.
