2. Use the pump only for its intended use as described in this manual.
3. Do not use accessory attachments not recommended by the manufacturer,
as this may cause hazards.

Cleaning and Sterilization
To Sanitize at Home:
Unless instructed otherwise by your health care provider.
Disassemble all parts of your kit that come in contact with
the breast or milk and sanitize by boiling for 10 minutes.
IMPORTANT
This product’s kit is a single-user item unless properly
sterilized between users. Use by more than one user
without adequate sterilization may pose a health risk and
voids the warranty.
After each use:
• Disassemble and wash all parts that come in contact
with the breast and milk in warm soapy water.
• Rinse in clear water.
Hygiene
Wash hands before touching
breasts or containers, and avoid
touching the inside of containers or
lids.
Preparation
Follow these cleaning instructions unless you are told
otherwise by your healthcare professional. Prior to cleaning,
take apart all parts of your breastpump accessory kit. Be
especially sure to remove the valve from the breastshield
and separate the membrane from the valve prior to cleaning.
• Air-dry on clean towel and cover parts when not in use.
All parts may also be washed in top rack of dishwasher.
For Quicker Cleaning:
Medela offers Quick Clean™ Micro-Steam™ Bags for daily
kit disinfection.
Tubing Care:
Inspect tubing after each pumping session for
condensation and or milk.
Prior To First Use
To Sterilize in the Hospital:
All disassembled parts can be autoclaved to a maximum
of 272° F for 3 minutes at 29 PSIG or 250° F for 15-20 minutes at 15 PSIG.
To avoid damage during and immediately after sterilization:
If condensation appears in tubing:
To eliminate condensation after you have completed
pumping, continue running the pump with the tubing
attached for another 1-2 minutes or until dry.
• Sterilize parts without applying external pressure to them.
• Allow parts to cool before applying external pressure.
If gas sterilization is used, residual testing is recommended to determine the proper length of aeration.

clear cold water. Clean the filter by rinsing in warm
water without soap.

Classic™ Filter
Care of Piston/Cylinder Assembly:
The inside of the cylinder must be smooth and free of
buildup to ensure long-lasting performance of the rubber
seal. Clean the cylinder, rubber seal, and vacuum regulator
ring every few pumpings with lukewarm soapy water or a
vinegar and water solution to keep these parts working
efficiently. In addition, rotate the piston in the cylinder
every few pumpings to ensure even wear. Only
sterilize/sanitize these parts when the presence of milk is
evident. Be sure the rubber seal is completely dry before
using.

Thawing frozen breastmilk:
• Thaw frozen breastmilk by holding the container under
warm water. Milk may be defrosted in the refrigerator
overnight. Gently shake the container to blend any fat
that has separated.
Caution:
• Do not thaw frozen breastmilk in a microwave or in a
pan of boiling water.
• If adding expressed breastmilk to container of already
frozen breastmilk, make sure to add a lesser amount
than the already frozen amount.
Troubleshooting
If There Is Low or No Suction
• Make sure all connections of kit and breastpump are
secure.
• Make sure membrane is lying flat against valve head.
Refer to the assembly instructions.
• Make sure the clear ends of the tubing fit securely into
breastshield assemblies and the other ends into the
ports on the pump connector.
