Motor dies out every time, I know we have bought this model 8 times in the last 3-years
on December 4, 2015
This aspirator will work for getting most of the mucus out, for a time. It does not work well if the mucus is too thick. Over the past 3-years we have gone through 8 of these aspirators. The motor has died on all 8 of our aspirators in less than 6-months and the music has broken on at least 2 of them for no apparent reason. I cannot explain why they break, our child does not play with it and we don't throw it around the house. It gets used, cleaned, and placed back in the drawer. The motorized portion is never exposed to water during cleaning so I just can't explain why it breaks. The most recent one we bought the motor stopped working the second time it was used on day 1 out of the box. Replacing the batteries did not solve the problem and over time on all the previous models it was the same, the motor would just be dead. They are easy to use and clean but if you like it I recommend you buy 2 because it will break when you need it most and you'll be stuck waiting on a replacement to come in like we were. Many of you can run out to a Walmart to pick one up but I live overseas so that isn't really an option.
