Food saver problems Answered

Hi! I have a food saver and when i seal more than 3 or4 bags, the pump doesn't blow the air out properly. I have to put the power off for 15 to 20 minutes and it work only for 3 bags. Why???

I'd venture to guess that the pump is heating up warping the seals a bit. So you have to turn it off, allow it to cool then you can go again.

A picture or source site so we can distinguish between the good, bad and your ugly device, Also someone may have experience with your device. We don't Read Minds @ this site or do you believe all seal a meal do this same thing !

ITMT it sounds like the machine over heats and cannot deliver full power.

After a quarter hour it cools down and can be used again.

See if the air vents are clear and there is no dirt visible inside
