My machine stopped working because the sealing ribbon was broken and the tape was worn. FoodSaver no longer does repairs. I knew the wire was called nichcome ribbon so I searched that. I checked the resistance of the ribbon on my machine, it was about 3.8 ohms. I found a site called mpakonline.com and from their site I bought 1/16 x .005 nichrome ribbon and 3/8 x 5 MIL. x 18 YD Acrylic Teflon Tape. The total cost of these items was about $36.00, the ohm value of their ribbon was 1.66 somewhat less.I used ends from radio shack made the repair and it has been working fine for the last two months and I have enough material leftover for about ten more repairs.

This problem comes about due to lack of useage usually. If the machine has been sitting for some time the grease inside hardens. The stitch length regulator, the pattern selector and the buttonhole mechanism could all be contributing to your problem. To fix it properly all three dials should be remove from the machine, disassembled cleaned, assembled and oiled lightly with a teflon lubricant. Since so much is removed from the machine doing this job, every setting in the machine is checked and or reset. It's a major overhaul and costs about $350 and only a handful of Viking Techs in the country can do it.
