I purchased a Seal-A-Meal roll to make my own bags but can't figure out how to use it. I have a model VS108. Is it possible to seal without vacuuming?

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

My seal a meal won't seal the bags. I have tried using premade bags and hand cut bags. It sucks the air out but will not heat up to seal.


There is either a blown fuse in the heater circuit or a bad heater filament, you can take it apart to see but there is no diagram or parts list on something like this, replace it.

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.

When I use my Powerglide Pet bagged vacuum cleaner, the debris does not go into the bag but on top of it. What should I do?


Usually there is a "seal" to make sure the dirt goes into the filter.
I guess the air flow is bypassing the seal somehow. Is the seal clean, is it in good condition?
Are you sure you have the right bag?

Foodsaver V3840 Won't vacuum air out and wont go to seal. A label states the seals are not removable. Do you know how to fix?


you are not using a "good" bag. Make sure there are no holes and that the bottom and sides of the bag are properly sealed. It will run all day and not pull the air out if the seal is broken anywhere.

How do I make vac bags out of my roll for my VS106/b


I believe for the Rival machine you cut some of the roll, then seal one end. Put your product in the roll then seal the other end. Generic rolls can be found at http://www.totalvac.com/tiliafoodsaverrolls.html

These will work on a Rival machine.

I took the filter assembly apart, now I can't get it back together. There's a silver medal ring, a big cotton back, an inner plastic seal and an outer plastic seal. Somehow, they all fit back together....


The cotton bag wraps around the hepa filter - the blue plastic part will not be visible once the bag is in place. The silver ring sits inside the cotton bag to hold the sides of the bag against the sides of the vacuum top-half. DON'T pull the plastic inner seal and outer seal apart. They snap together and snap onto the lip of the vacuum top-half. It's a bit of a struggle snapping the seal back onto the lip.

How do I work a Salton vacuum bag sealer (Model BS-20)? I can not figure out how to get the air out of the bag.


This style of vacuum sealer has to use a special bag with a " dimpled " surface to let the air escape through the pinch jaws of the vacuum sealer.

The folowing web site has bags and rolls that can be cut ro make any size of bag you require. You can buy on line direct from the manufacturer as well as purchase more industrial vacuum packers

Great hose suction, awful floor performance


Lose of suction usually means a clog either in the hose, dirt inlet by the brush roll and clogged filters. But a belt that has stretched to where it won't turn the brush roll under load will make it appear as no suction. If you have replaced the belt in a while, I would try that.

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
