    what do you need to press hard? It closes fine, the vacuum just runs all the time regardless if I\'m attempting to seal or not.

Vacum works heatseal does not seal can i replace seal

Sealing always tends to be the problem with FoodSaver because during the course of normal wear and tear, the sealing strip and wire will naturally need to be replaced.

You can get replacement heating wires and strips at

We started out selling just replacement parts for heat impulse sealers but we kept on getting customer requests for FoodSaver parts so we've added that section to our website.

My food saverf V 835 just stopped sealing. I haven't used it that much, and it worked fine last time I used it.

I just spoke to customer service. I was told there is no replacement part for the heating element. They did offer me a discount on a new Foodsaver.

My tilia foodsaver is not creating a vacuum consistantly anymore, do you need to replace gaskets?

take a rag and wet it with water then run it over the seal on top and bottom. Some light cooking oil will work too.
