Does it have the black rubber gaskets like my V845 Foodsaver? If so, make sure that you wet down the black rubber gaskets like with a wet paper towel before each sealing, and of course make sure the edge of the cut bag is between the two black rubber gaskets. Hope this helps you.

    Thank you for the Great Tip! That little bit of moisture works like a charm. Foodsaver should include this recommendation in their Quick Start Guide and Users' Manual (if it's there, it's too hard to find and too important to bury).

I need the sheet to correct the wistle noise on the 1004 e moore

The whistling noise may be from an improper air intake shutter control adjustment. For a Natural Gas Unit the air shutter control should only be open about 1/4 " . Also, when checking that, look to see if it's clogged with dust and lint. If so, vacuum it out using a crevice tool on the hose of your vacuum.

Vent-free Gas Appliances should be cleaned and serviced at least once a year. Usually in the Fall before firing it up for the heating season. Twice if you have house pets. Especially one's that shed a lot.

Our Dyson sucked something up last week (not sure WHAT) and now the telescoping hose won't ****. Well, it sucks but just BARELY . I took the hose apart and can't see anything, but it makes a weird noise...

Well if the hose is completly clear the blockage is either before that or after that the brush roller should come out to clean the tube as you know also comes out make sure all are clear right up to the collector
