SOURCE: foodsaver compact vac 550 sealing strip doesn't seal

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.

Check the altitude adjustment. Also, check for food debris in the intake hole, tube or path. Check for debris on the rubber seal around the sealing strip.

Thermostats light comes on but there is no heat in the oven


Actually, the thermostat turns the light OFF, as in reaching the desired temperature. The light indicates that power is being applied to the heating element. If the element is blown, the light will come on, but no circuit is completed to generate heat. (the light is 120 vac on one leg of the 220 vac element) Unplug the unit, remove the back panel, locate the element connection and disconnect ONE. With a multimeter set to register ohms (resistance) measure across the element leads (not the wires, the actual connectors of the element itself). If this reading is infinite? you have a blown element and it needs to be replaced.

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
