Vent: I've had it with my Purely Yours!

I've had it replaced twice! I've replaced the tubes, valves and diaphragms.  Both of the replacements gave me the same exact issue!  After a few days of use it loses suction and the diaphragm gets stuck in the vacuum position and won't inflate back up.  I pop the top off and back on for a second of suction, and it gets stuck again. Ugh!  I know it is affecting my supply and I'm at my wits end.

I'm gonna call ameda again this morning, they're gonna want to replace it again, but I kinda just want my money back and buy a medela instead. Or rent a hospital grade pump for the next 4 months (that will be 12 months). 

Ugh!

  • Dont waste your time by keep replacing it. If after two replacements and it's still acting up ask for your money back and buy a Medela. I had a FirstOne I think its call and it lost suction after 3 months, I just thought my supply was depleating but I went ahead and purchased the $300 Medela pump that comes in a bag and it made pumping so much easier!. I just plugged it in sat back and watched the magic!

  • Did you replace the part that hooks the tubes into the motor?  I understand your frustration.  Between my daughrer and son I have had two replacement pumps and my power supply went up twice.

  • I called them yet again.  We did some trouble shooting during my last pump session.  It appears that 3 out of the 4 valves I recently got from them are bad.  Since only one of the sides is dropping suction, the problem isn't the pump.  They're sending me new valves.  That is the last time I try to work with this pump though.... I keep hoping it'll work well again because I have several parts for it.

    When it works well, it is a great pump!  But I need it to be reliable.
