It may be that the gaskets are faulty. Vacuum will keep running trying to draw air out before sealing. If that is your problem I've been told you can order replacement gaskets from Rival, about $6/set 1-800-557-4825 and $8 shipping, so may want to stock up (prices were quoted from 2012). this part is not listed in the seal-a-meal website, only available by calling.

You can fix it yourself for $3 or so if you look for the thermal cutoff (a resister looking device) You can get this at a quality electronics supply. If you just cross the cutoff it will work but could be a fire hazard.

Can you make yoghurt using a thermos flask?


it may sound hard to believe but yes, you can make yoghurt but
putting it into a vaccum sealed thermos flask. The vaccume keeps the
milk temperature consistent for hours.Once it sets you can move it to
a different container.

I hear a clunking noise in the front of the car and my wife says it sounds like it bottoms out


she is right. replace the vaccum hoses and all rubber connectors that have a vaccum suction to the throttle body and the grommet gasket seals to your intake. should be 4 elbows and three vaccum plugs, and two gromet gaskets (Intake Air sensor & Intake Vaccum). Remember a small crack can cause it to bottom out and stall and probably have poor milage. jr93657@yahoo.com

The small white clip that keeps the nozzle cage dowmn is broken. Can i get it replaced?


Mine broke too.. I contacted Seal-a-meal, and for my machine, they don't make replacement parts anymore. BUT, here's what I did and it works great. I place a chopstick across the length of the lock and seal nozzle...I use a little scotch-tape to hold it in place.. When you shut the lid, it applies enough pressure to the nozzle, to start pulling air out of the bags. I do have to lean or push down hard on the lid, to get it to lock into place, before sealing, but the chopstick works wonderful...I am not going to buy a whole new seal-a-meal when this works so terrific. In fact, I just seal-a-mealed 8 bags of beans this afternoon. Try it before you go out and buy another machine.
