Question about Rival VS230 Seal A Meal Vacuum Food Sealer

Open Question

The heating element on my VS110 has burned through the protective fabric covering in one spot. The bags all scorch in that spot, and burn through. No seal. Is there anything anyone has found that will successfully cover that element? I know there is no replacement element for that model.

SOURCE: When I go to SEAL, it burns a small hole clear thru the bag. One little metal peice on the sealing strip has burned right thru the white heating strip, therefore, it isn't sealing completely.

You need new tape to replace the one presently covering the heat element. You can get a roll of it for just US$7.99. Look at the FixYa question "where [or how maybe] can I get a new tape." I think that you have to be sure that the heat element is flat. I bought a used unit with that problem and the element had somehow gotten bent. Ordered the tape this morning and the cost is worth the hopeful fix.

Kenmore 80 series dryer keeps tripping breaker after it runs for 5-10 minutes


First, see if you get the same result when you run the machine on "Air-Fluff." If you don't pop the breaker on Air -Fluff you know the problem is originating in the heat circuit, get inside the machine and inspect the wiring for crispy/burned terminals and the heat element for damage or contact with the housing... If it does pop the breaker on Air-Fluff: Inspect the terminal block on the back of the unit where the power cord is bolted on (with the unit unplugged), look for any scorched spots- if that is clear, remove the outlet cover and inspect the wire connections on it for scorching (with the circuit break off). Can't be more specific without a model #!

Why has baumatic B501SS oven covered in light gray coating inside when heated, now not working


It sound like the heating element burned out. Check the element and see if there is a burned spot or blister somewhere along the element. If so the element will need replacing.

On my whirlpool stack washer / electric dryer unit ( 27" ) the dryer puts burn spots in the clothes"


If your clothes have burn spots that probably means the drum is not turning and/or you have a very dangerous "always on" grounded heating element problem. If your heating element is grounded that is very dangerous, and you should unplug your machine before it burns your house down.

I have a GE Microwave Oven/Dual Element Browner Model # JES1288SHO3. The inside cabinet is arching through the wave guide panel. DAVE IN LA.


Hi Dave in LA,

The wave gude cover is replaceable, the part number is1085082. The reason for arcing through is typically a splatter of food stuck to the cover and then the heating waves overcooked or burned it. Carefully replace the cover (panel), look for any burned spots behind the cover, if the wave guide is burned through, the Microwave is unrepairable. If the waveguide has small arc spots you can carefully clean (sandpaper) and use touchup paint to recoat. I hope this helps and if it does, please let us know!

Burning smell


I had burning smell and some visible smoke which I tracked down to the handle area. The mains socket at the bottom of the handle had burned out. When I pulled the plug out I noticed that the prongs were blackened and scorched. I will replace the socket.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer is scorching clothes


there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace
