Thanks for the tip. I'm going to make sure i wipe mine down next time I have it out.


Now do you have any tips for keeping tiny food particles out of seal? I use a lot of bags. Frequently, putting the food into the bag leaves food residue on the top of the bag on the rough side. It will seal, but it leaks later.

You can put a rolled up paper towel on top of the food before sealing. That helps keep food or liked being sucked out.

While still under warranty my Foodsaver V2490 started pumping and sealing prematurely. I called their CS and they hipped me to occasionally re-moisturing and rotating the upper and lower seals and it worked like a charm, they even sent a replacement set gratis, but I've never had the need to use them. Couple years later, the sealing tape developed a ridge and would end up with faulty seals that just got worse.
I told myself when this dies I'm getting the Weston 2300. Someone posted a link just before Christmas from this site http://www.thehuntersbutchershop.com...-Bags-s/42.htm and they had the best deal around with free shipping and bags. So keep an eye on the prize.

If I leave the hose on, and try to suck and seal a bag, it doesn't happen. The hose must come off.

Guys, if it works with either alcohol or water, choose water.
It isn't a good thing use alcohol on rubber, the rubber breaks down.
like my liver...

Also another problem is that the pump does need a rest after doing a bunch of bags. When I first got mine I made about a dozen packages. Toward the end I started having trouble and found that it did fine after I gave it about 30 minutes to cool off.

Same here. Can maybe do about 12 - 15 bags before resting.

Update: So cleaning the gasket only really helped that one time.

I am never buying another Foodsaver. I am officially in the market for a Weston.

What about double sealing? I often find myself pulling out the FS for a single mission and I want to make it worth while. So, I double seal both sides for good measure. I haven't had a seal failure in the past few weeks since I've been doing that. Worthwhile? I think so, even though a single seal on each side should work.

Thanks for the tip!...... Another tip I heard recently is to NOT store the top & bottom in the closed (down) position, as the seal will become compressed..... Been through I think 4 FS in the past 25+- years & never heard that 1 before.... Might be worth a try?

I'm a firm believer that the appliances are alive and feel threatened and turn their life around when we threaten replacement. I can't tell you the amount of times i've had devices stop working where I tell my wife Im going to get a new one and magically it starts working again!

For sanitary reasons I clean mine after every use. It only takes seconds.
