If sptpc's suggestion doesn't get it going, it may need a rebuild (or replacement). Perhaps something could be stuck in the pump valves, so that may make taking it apart worth the effort.

if you havent used it for a longtime it may have dried out inside there is a seal that sucks up the air and water, it it drys out after use ( 1 year + ) it shrinks to flx it get a bottle cut a small hole in the lid put in a straw and squirt water back into the tap end till its full of water then try it again,
this may take several goes to resoak the seal
