ive just got a maxi 210 and have no need to run it as my beers are all maturing.
i have no use for the pump line and didnt think about turning it off.?
(has anyone found a link to an instruction manual for these... im still searching the net now)

Rab has tried adding glycerine which proved to viscous for the pump, I believe glycol may cause the same problem. I think using a vodka addative is worth a punt. At least it's food safe and drinkable if it leaks.
