trouble-shooting my food saver
I saved it a few years ago by putting in new gaskets. While at it i ordered two sets, fairly cheap. So it is not the gaskets.
It will do the beginnings of drawing air but will not switch to the 'seal' mode on its own...i hit 'seal' and get an ok seal but it does start to draw some air before that activates. Hmm.
It is the older flat model. Fortunately Costco has the same model now or similar. I bought a new one out of sheer need. Just 50$ and came with many bags so i did not blink. The old one could be useful at another home if i can get it back to working order. (rather than packing an entire kitchen of gack like i normally do) . Hate to toss it if fixable.
Cleaned intake the ports. I've been careful about freezing liquids first...
I suppose i should take it apart and search for a gunk clog?
