    Question Medela PIAS - no Suction - Help!!

    Help, I am out of town and my pump just stopped working. It works with a very mild suction but it is not enough to get milk out. I have a Medela PISA and I got it with my previous baby in 2006. Any suggestions of help?

    check the connections for the tubing. Then call the medels help line they will walk you through the motor trouble shooting to see what's wrong...they are great

    call Medela - they will walk you through troubleshooting your pump

    hopefully it's something like tubing or needing new valves (the little white flap thingies)
