returning/fixing breast pumps

im trying to get my son to take the breast again but until i can get an appt with someone to help me get him to latch on im not ready to give up the pump (plus ill need it when i return to work anyways) i still offer my son my breast and i try really hard but once he gets to the point of screaming bloody murder and turning really red, i give in and give him a bottle (of course with breast milk in it).

well i have a evenflow comfort select dual pump and one of the motors has been acting funny. it acts like it cant keep up or something. it doesnt dump the milk into the bottle fast enough so it gets backed up i guess you could say. then sometimes it just wont suction period. (and that is happening more and more). so ive been just using the other motor and using it as a single pump. well now THAT motor isnt suctioning very well at all. so now i have a 2 motors, one which works when it wants, and the other that just kind of killed over.

i know i cant take it back to the store i bought it at and i have to deal with the company themselves, but will they even do anything to fix or replace it? i havent even had it a month, but i dont have the receipt for it.

call the company usually they will send out a cheaper model to use while your pump is being fixed or they will just replace it. also they may have a local office to go to!! good luck!!

i'm not really for sure what they would do but if y ou could get your oney back and cold afford to put some more money into a pump id get a different pump.  my the laniso kind or medela or amenda.  everyone has siad the evenflo kind is crappy, but if it was working with you before and you liked it then keep it.  it could be the membrane valve things on the bottom that could be why they arent sucking that good and dumping.  there could be somethign causing it to stick mb taking it off and cleaning mite help.   i'm not for sure honey.  but i used an evenflo with my first one and it just wasn't working out for me and ended  up losing what milk i had.  wiht ds2i have a medela manual harmony and love it.  i respond so well to it that it blows the evenflo out of the water for sure
