Pump losing strength, what can I replace?

I have a medela pump in style advanced. I barely used it with my son but now I'm using it a few times a week with my daughter. It isn't as strong and doesn't suction as much, is there an easy part I can replace or do I need to get it fixed through the company?

Check the diaphragm or any of the soft parts there could be a tiny hole. Those are normally pretty cheap to replace so I would start there.

This. Also check the tubing gun see if there is a hole or check to make sure it's plugged in properly. If you are only pumping one side at a time make sure the hole for other tubing is covered.
