My foodsaver does not heat up to make the seal.


Did it ever work? Try another receptacle and if that doesn't make a difference you probably need a replacement.

Why my foos saver is not sealing


I've found with mine I have to hold down firmly on the top while unit is heating the bag to seal it. I continue to hold the lid down for about 10 seconds after heating stops until the seal cools. Hope this helps.

Need to replace the heat stripe tape on my tilla foodsaver vaccum sealer


concerning my food sealer: the strip under the heating wire came loose & would not stay in place. i almost threw the unit away but its at least $40 to buy another. i decided to buy a roll of PTFE Coated Fiberglass Fabric With Silicone Adhesive Tape. PTFE is Teflon but u cant use Teflon as a search term because of the copyright. i found a roll on ebay for $3 (free ship) from China (how do they do that!). it took about 2 weeks for the roll to arrive. I cut a strip to fit under the wire. The wire had burned & partially buried itself in the unprotected plastic. Be gentle when nudging it out & clean off any material that has attached itself to the wire. Seals & works like new!
would you like to buy the rest of the roll? the roll has about 28 feet left.

Vacum works heatseal does not seal can i replace seal


Sealing always tends to be the problem with FoodSaver because during the course of normal wear and tear, the sealing strip and wire will naturally need to be replaced.

You can get replacement heating wires and strips at www.elementandteflon.com

We started out selling just replacement parts for heat impulse sealers but we kept on getting customer requests for FoodSaver parts so we've added that section to our website.

I have a foodsaver and it sucks the air out but won't seal. What do I do? We're trying to save some frozen fish and it just sucks and sucks but doesn't stop or seal. Any ideas?


The bag is wrinkled or the gaskets are leaky, it has to pull down to a set vacuum in order to shut off and heat the strip to seal the bag. For the right now dilemma try pressing down on the lid while it's vacuuming and start looking for gaskets at foodsaver.com

Foodsaver Food Sealer Vacuum V2240 T: Foodsaver Professional II Turbo. Vacuum pump work...


This is likely happening because the unit cannot detect that a vacuum has formed, and as a result, the unit never "turns on" the heating element to seal the bag, with the gaskets around the vacuum channel being the probable culprit. The Foodsaver gaskets will deform and/or dry out with time, just like in any device, but you don't necessarily have to replace them. I've tried this inexpensive solution on my own Foodsaver V2490, and it works perfectly.
Buy some food-grade silicone grease and apply it to both the upper and lower gaskets. I remove the gaskets and coat both sides with a thin layer of grease before replacing them in their respective channels. And since this grease will be absorbed and/or dry out with time, you will have to do this occasionally, so I also flip the gaskets (i.e. turn them over) whenever I apply the grease.
You can buy a 2 oz container of silicone grease at any dive store, or you can buy it over the Internet by searching for "Trident silicone grease".
This is a link where you can buy it for around $7.00:
Dolphin Dive Center
I do not work at this dive center, but I am a scuba diver and already had some grease that I use for the numerous rubber gaskets in my gear. The 2 oz. jar will last you several years, and you will find many other uses for it around the house since the grease will last longer than a spray.

My food saverf V 835 just stopped sealing. I haven't used it that much, and it worked fine last time I used it.


I just spoke to customer service. I was told there is no replacement part for the heating element. They did offer me a discount on a new Foodsaver.
