Question about Rival VS107 Seal A Meal Vacuum Food Sealer

1 Answer

Unit was able to seal 2 bags and then stopped working...after 20 minutes still not working. Last time I used unit worked for 10-15 bags and then stopped working but started to work 2 hours later. Unit is only 6 months old and only used 6 or 7 times.

    Manually pressing the switch on the left side of the unit seems to work, however not necessarily for many cycles...5 or 6 cycles seems to be the max before unit goes out again. Your are correct in that it is a bad switch or switches.

    Manually depressing the switch worked but only for 5 or 6 cycles at a time.

Foodsaver Food Sealer Vacuum V2240 T: Foodsaver Professional II Turbo. Vacuum pump work...


This is likely happening because the unit cannot detect that a vacuum has formed, and as a result, the unit never "turns on" the heating element to seal the bag, with the gaskets around the vacuum channel being the probable culprit. The Foodsaver gaskets will deform and/or dry out with time, just like in any device, but you don't necessarily have to replace them. I've tried this inexpensive solution on my own Foodsaver V2490, and it works perfectly.
Buy some food-grade silicone grease and apply it to both the upper and lower gaskets. I remove the gaskets and coat both sides with a thin layer of grease before replacing them in their respective channels. And since this grease will be absorbed and/or dry out with time, you will have to do this occasionally, so I also flip the gaskets (i.e. turn them over) whenever I apply the grease.
You can buy a 2 oz container of silicone grease at any dive store, or you can buy it over the Internet by searching for "Trident silicone grease".
This is a link where you can buy it for around $7.00:
Dolphin Dive Center
I do not work at this dive center, but I am a scuba diver and already had some grease that I use for the numerous rubber gaskets in my gear. The 2 oz. jar will last you several years, and you will find many other uses for it around the house since the grease will last longer than a spray.

yes cycles should be longer either that or the unit is keeping close to desired humidity. Also the unit is under sized 30 pint is for 400sqft. or 20 by 20 room. humidity should be 30/50 percent check your level desired room temp is 70 degrees but its a basemnt 60 works.

My pentsir clorinator seems to not be working, my pool keeps clouding up


There can be a couple of reasons for this issue. First, have you had your water tested lately? In the manual, there are specific levels of chemicals that need to be watched so the unit will work more effiecently. Another item is have you cleaned the unit lately? If not, try to clean it. First with the garden hose on high pressure, if you have tried this, then it is time for a chemical bath.

To do one of these, you will need muriatic acid, water, two buckets, and a freezer bag and rubber band- if you do not have the chemical cleaning accessory kit. You will need to mix the acid and water in a 1 to 4 part mixture, 4 parts water to 1 part acid, in one of the buckets. Then turn off the pool system, if you have the check valve in front of the IC, close that also. Then remove the unit from the piping, on one end you will see a metal piece-looks like a flap hanging down- this is the flow meter for the unit. On the end with this, take the freezer bag and lay it across the opening, put the rubber band around the bag, this will make the cleaning MUCH easier. Once that end is sealed, place the unit, with the sealed side DOWN into the other bucket. Then pour the acid mix into the cyclinder, make sure to cover all the inside of the unit. You can wait five minutes, or until the bubbling stops, before pouring the mixture out of the cell. Rinse the unit with the garden hose and reconnect it. See if this helps, but I would DEFINATELY have the water levels checked first.

If you can give more details, like are there any lights on, or off, on the unit? How long have you had the unit will help also.

Starting system cold, no sound for 2-3 minutes


Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.
