Firstly, visit their website and look for a spares service. Ordinary Teflon plumbing tape MIGHT do the job but I'm not too sure how you would go about fixing it into place.

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.

The seal a meal will vaccume but it will not seal. It just keeps running the vaccum process. Do I need to replace my appliance? Or is this a fixable problem


You can fix it yourself for $3 or so if you look for the thermal cutoff (a resister looking device) You can get this at a quality electronics supply. If you just cross the cutoff it will work but could be a fire hazard.

Seal-a-Meal seal has blister on it


I think that you have the same problem that I have. The protective tape over the heating element [a strip in my case] has a hole in it and allows the element to come in direct contact with the bag. Also, the heating strip had a kink in it was was no longer flat. I carefully cleaned the heating strip and flattened it out as best I can. I have ordered some tape from : http://www.ebay.com/itm/170848027703?item=170848027703&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME:X:AAQ:MOTORS:1123&vxp=mtr to replace the defective one. A simple job.

Good Morning, I have a [email protected] Vacuum Sealer Model # VS106/-B....Problem I am having is, it has stoped sealing the bag....Heat strip is not hot at all....Can you help me.....I purchase it just...


Hi,
I have seen many complaints about those things come to FixYa...It seems that the wire that makes the heat either becomes disconnected or breaks...as far as I can tell there is no fixing or replacement for that.
Wish that I could give you better news.....:-(
