Ezivac vacuum packing food saver won't seal !

Yes, my Ezivac from Hillmark Industries (I purchased it in Australia)does vacuum all right but it won't seal. It appears that the sealing part is not broken or damaged. We haven't used it much, frankly, and we are careful with our kitchen appliances,so we are a bit dismayed ! Especially since I bought an ANOVA sous-vide cooking machine a few weeks ago, so it is all the more frustrating. Boo ooh ooh ! Can you possibly help ? I thank you in advance !

SOURCE: lumina vacuum food sealer will not seal

Rang the info. number. I did not do this before because it was after hours.
The solution was simple, apply pressure with finger to lid and press start button. Evidently the plastic lid distorts when closed and does not make electrical connection. Works OK now.

SOURCE: my Rival food saver does not vacuum air out

We discovered we were not moving the bags in far enough to be grabbed properly. After pushing in the bag before closing the unit we found it started sealing properly. This was on an older system, so be sure the bags you're sealling are between the black rubber rectanglar sections before closing the door.

If this is for a canister, be sure the rubber around the lid is seated properly. The rubber can be removed, cleaned and wiped dry. Clean out the lid and dry it too. Reseat the rubber seal and try again... Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I purchased a Seal-A-Meal roll

On most models of vacuum sealing systems, you cut off the roll the size of bag you need. Slip one open end of the bag just on top of the heating element over it about 1/8-1/4" and press down the lid to seal the bottom of the bag. Fill the bag and then place the open end far enough into the vacuum cavity over the heating element and close the lid and press down and hold until the cycle finishes. If you don't want a vacuum, just put enough bag material to cover the heating element but not into the vacuum cavity. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Leaking Solution Tank/Seal Install - Hoover Steam Vac

Not sure this will help, but we have a Hoover Steamvac F5843 and our valve seal seemed to have shrunk so the tank was leaking. Bought a new seal and had the same problem. How to install? There weren't any instructions or pictures of the part(s) involved in the manual. Online there were a few pics but nothing helpful. After careful examination of the existing part and where it was supposed to be, I removed the original off the valve stem, placed the new one on it and carefully pressed the valve stem with the seal into place. It didn't look quite right and we were thinking "now what?". My wife and I got the idea at the same time...install the clean water tank (with the stem & seal in the bottom) back onto the steam cleaner. I took it back off to see what the stem & seal looked like afterwords and voila...the seal was perfectly inserted where it should be and the tank no longer leaks! The 'peg' that presses up on the valve stem pushed the seal perfectly in place.

    Cannot get it to vacuum.


    Does it try to vacuum but never flattens the bag? Make sure the bag you are using is completely sealed on the opposite end. Otherwise, the seal on the sealer is probably allowing air to leak into the sealer. If it has a foam sealer, I've found it sometimes helps to run the foam sealer under water, squeeze out the excess water, reinsert the foam sealer (make sure it is seated all the way) and then try again to seal the bag.

    I have wasted quit a bit of the bags because the food saver is not sealing completely. It leaves a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch unsealed therefore I can not vacuum seal. What am I doing wrong


    Try making a seal with nothing liquid in bag, check seal on bag after. If seal looks good it could just be liquid getting on seal area causing it not to seal. There are tips online on how to help prevent this (example: placing rolled up paper towel sheet). If seal still looks bad than you may have a bad spot on the heat seal wire.

    MY FOOD SAVER HAS BEGUN NOT VACUUMING. IT SEALS BUT DOES NOT GET THE AIR OUT LIKE IT USE TO


    Does it hum as though it's vacuuming? If not, it's probably broken - the vacuum pump is out. It's cheaper to get a new one than attempt to get the old one fixed. If it hums, then replace any hoses you find or the foam around the drip tray.

    The heater bar is too hot. Allow it to cool for a while before resuming sealing.
