FoodSaver Quick Start V825/V845/Game Saver Sport Vacuum Sealer. Answered

We have an FoodDSaver QuickStart V825/845 Game Saver Sport vacuum sealer that will suck the air out but will not seal. I was wondering if it could be the heating element gone bad???? Tell me how to check it and how to fix it. Thanks in advance. My email is; fed1@farmerstel.com.

Probably the element, either check with an IR temp device or measure the resistance of the element with a multimeter.

I don't have that unit, but if the unit will seal manually it is likely loosing vacuum in the vacuum chamber. Try moistening the rubber seals around the vacuum chamber. Worked for mine.
