If you notice that your breast pump’s suction has decreased, there are two things you should check first: your pump’s valves and membranes. Your breast pump’s valves and membranes work together to create a seal around your nipple and facilitate suction; when they get old or break, that suction decreases. If you notice cracks, tears or defects of any sort in these pieces, it’s time to replace them. As a note, you should be regularly replacing these parts of your pump even if they aren’t broken

My Zomee is not turning on
If your breast pump won’t turn on, the first thing you should do is check the power source. Make sure your outlet is working properly. If it is, take a look at your power adapter. Try connecting the charging cable to your computer or battery bank to see if the problem is the AC adapter.
If the AC adapter is working fine, contact Zomee's customer service to request a new breast pump.

There is no suction when pumping
If you’ve ever noticed a sudden loss of suction while pumping most commonly it’s because the duckbill valve or valve + membrane set is not attached correctly to the breast shield, or has fallen off.
