Air pump motor not strong

My Whisper air pump, for 10 gallons, has suddenly weakened. I tried replacing the diaphragm on it but it made no difference. My only guess is that the motor has gone south?

Are these repairable/modifiable? I looked online but none sells the motor; just the diaphragms.

This one is only like ten bucks at the store but still... lol

some times teh part that slips into the airline tubing can crack check there first a little super glue should fix it!!! other wise by the time you get a motor if yo find one and shipping its cheaper to buy a new one

how old is the air pump?

I agree with bear, check your airline tubing. Theres no point in trying to superglue the tubing, it would cost around the same to just buy new tubing.
