Did not see this post until now. You have described exactly what I am seeing on the Weston 22 I posted about a couple days ago. I ordered a new auger bearing earlier tonight and hoping that helps. Did you ever get this issue resolved Miket482000

Drill a hole in the mason jar lid and insert the fitting with a backing nut and silicone to make airtight or use the valve stem core removed and it will have all the parts to be air tight. TSC has a great selection of fittings so that you can get the exact size of your tubing.

I added batteries to the vacuum sealer handle, and hot dang, that is a game changer to have the buttons on the handle. I would absolutely recommend this sealer to anyone. 4 thumbs up.

badexpresso I have yet used a non chambered vacuum sealer than keep up with the speed that I have when I’m in the process mode.
My point is even when they say that they can be used “In Continuous Mode” They still need 45 to 60 seconds to cool the sealer bar down! Give them a chance to cool between cycles.
Yeah, I gave the sealing bar a good test last night, as I had everything bagged and went to vacuum/sealing one after another (perhaps 5-10 seconds between). I did check the sealing bar, and it was cool to the touch after the short rest period.
Has anyone experienced a sealing bar failure on a food saver? Mine didn’t fail, just wondering if it’s happened to anyone

badexpresso When you say it was cool to the touch, do you mean that it was still sealing and cool to the touch, or it wouldn’t heat up? Those sealing bars do need time to cool down between seals for the chamberless machine, but it sounds like you know that.
Yes, I’m aware that they recommend a 20?seconds cooling time before sealing. I would seal and set the bag down and feel the sealing bar, and it was already cool to the touch, so I kept on trucking.
I adjusted me last comments, I was just wondering if anyone has had a seal bar fail. I’ve had pumps fail

badexpresso I don’t have that kind of sealer but the one I got started burning a small hole in every bag when I was sealing. I found a slight raised spot in the heating bar. Replaced it and had no problems since. I bought another replacement to have on standby if it happens again.
