Pump has motor issues

I bought my pump within 3 months of use l had issues with the motor. I requested a loan pump which worked well and l did not have to charge tge battery so often but when my oump returned from repairs the issues were worse and before l knew it l was out of warranty.l contacted spectra to see if they could have another look at the motor l was then advised l had to pay for the repairs and tge amount was equivalent to purchasing another breast pump.
Am very disappointed with the product its not worth the money they charge. Show details

Sucks great!

I used Medela when I had my first 3 babies then 9 years later for our last bub I bought the spectra S1 plus double pump. Loooooved it. I don't get the negative reviews but I've also not had any issues with it. I did have to replace the tubing and duckbills during it but easy peasy.
I used my pump exclusively for 8 months and it was Amazing. Really worthy investment... highly recommend

Pros
Quiet
The light
Good suction
Doesn't hurt as lots of setting options
The timer so you know how long you've gone for
Easy to move it around the house (no problems)
Easier to clean compared to other pumps
Cons
I found the parts needed replacing more regularly than I had to replace for my Medela Show details

There are so many design faults with this flimsy pump, it is horrible and customer service terrible

The pump was defective and the customer service was horrible, I was asking for help and the assistance was abysmal I was given the runaround with a million different questions I had already answered. I had replaced the parts and changed flange sizes but still the pump doesn’t work properly. They said they wouldn’t accept the warranty claim at all so I had no choice but to report to NSW Fair Trading. They wouldn’t even take a look at it! This company hides behind a computer screen and relies on people to just give up. Show details

I ended up having to buy another brand breast pump I got so fed up

Great pump! Not great with the portability. And so incredibly awful when it comes to screwing the bottles onto the flanges or the lids onto the bottles. Any jostling of the bottles in a bag, and the lids come off and leak all over everything… If you’re moving such as typing while pumping, the jostling of your arms will loosen the bottles from the flanges and they will fall right to the floor. It got to the point that I just bought a new pump because you just can’t screw these on tight to where they won’t leak or fall off the flange while pumping.. Show details

Terrible customer service

Initially this pump was perfect. After a week of using it I decided to order another tube as I damaged one. Spectra sent me another tube different to the tube that came with the pump - this new tube has terrible suction compared to the original tube. When I emailed customer service regarding this they were very rude, and unprofessional. They made no attempt to remedy this situation. I let them know before writing this review that I was disappointed in their management of my complaint, and they just ignored me.

Absolutely terrible customer service. I gave 2 stars instead of 1 purely because the pump was very good to start off with.  Show details

Quiet and comfortable, amazing for early breast feeding days

I love my spectra s1, battery lasts a long time, it has a handy light which has 2 brightness options and it is easy to assemble and keep clean. The pump is very comfortable and quiet. I can not recommend this enough!  Show details

Battery issues, refused manufacturers warranty

After 2 months, battery dropped less than half of its original life. Contact support. Was told the wrong information about battery life and told me there’s nothing wrong with it when clearly there was. Customer service person refused to escalate to management per request and blocked me on messenger. Taking this to consumer affairs  Show details

Is the spectra compatible with other bottles? Specifically, advent bottles that you can easily buy near me from chemist

Spectra
Spectra   DM   

Heya Izzy - yes! The Advent bottles will work with Spectra pumps. In fact, any standard wide neck bottle will fit on a Spectra shield. :)

Feel free to shoot our Customer Service Team a message is we can help with something else. :)

Help my spectra pump has turned on but now none of the buttons will work to switch between modes, increase suction or even turn it off.

I was pumping and all of a sudden the Spectra turns off! I tried to turn it back on and the screen turns in but there’s no suction or pumping sounds from the pump. After a few seconds, it shuts off.

The battery is fully charged! Can someone help?!

Spectra   DM
