Bag will not seal

• Check that there aren't any gaps, folds, wrinkles or holes in pre-sealed edges.

• Moisture of foods with high liquid content will prevent the bag from

sealing properly. Cut bag open and wipe top inside of bag and reseal.

• Make sure you've placed the bag in the proper place. When making a

bag from a roll, make sure end of cut piece is on Sealing Strip, NOT over

Lower Sealing Gasket or in Drip Tray.

• Make sure you give the appliance time to cool down. Wait at least 20
seconds between seals.

If all the above have been verified and the machine will still not pull a vacuum, you will need to replace the upper and lower gaskets.

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.

Need upper and lower sealing gaskets for Rival Seal-A-Meal VS107


I've been told you can order replacement gaskets from Rival, about $6/set 1-800-557-4825 and $8 shipping, so may want to stock up (prices were quoted from 2012)

When vacuuming out air, the liquid is vacuumed, inside of the bag where it seals is wet, and it won't seal.


Try placing a folded paper towel in the bag between the item and the area of the seal
The towel will absorb the liquid allowing the bag to seal but keeping the liquid in the bag
