  1. Many folks have asked us how to change the heating wire and strip of their FoodSavers.  While not all FoodSavers are the same, we have come up with a basic instruction guide based on the FoodSaver V2040.  Please tailor our instructions accordingly based on your FoodSaver model.  You can also download the instruction sheet here.

    Removing the Kit

    1.  Remove the Lower Base.  Turn the sealer over and remove the eight screws holding the lower based and upper unit together.  (One screw is found where the power cord is located.)

    2.  Remove the PTFE Adhesive (Sealing Strip).  Open the upper jaw of the vacuum sealer and gently peel the PTFE adhesive (sealing strip) from the heating element.  You may have to push some of the PTFE adhesive through from the lower base.

    3.  Removing the Heating Element (Heating Wire).  Removing the heating element may be a bit tricky and requires some patience.  Using either your fingers or a pair of small pliers, pull the spring hook from the hole of the heating element.  When you release on end of the element from the spring hook, the other end will release easily.

    Installing the New Kit

    1.  Replacing the Heating Element.  Attach the new element to the spring hook and run the element along the upper base of the vacuum sealer.  Attach the other end of the element to the spring hook on the other side.

    2.  Replacing the PTFE Adhesive.  Remove the backing on the adhesive.  Apply the adhesive over the element.

    *A good rule of thumb is to replace the PTFE adhesive (sealing strip) every time you change the element.

  2. For the SINBO (DZ-280/A) light commercial vacuum sealer, we have found these directions quite helpful in order to get a great vacuum and seal.

    1) Turn the power switch off & open the top cover by lifting the lid gently. You may have to unlock the right side and left side lock.  Push down on one or both left &/or right corner spots marked lock to release the cover.

    2) Practice a few seals on your bag before starting the vacuum process to determine the time setting needed.  Adjust the seal time setting for the bag being sealed.  You can start at 3 or 4.  After sealing a few packages you may need to drop down a number or two because it will take less time to seal additional bags once you have been sealing consecutive bags.

    3) Now you can start the vacuum process - Extend the snorkel/nozzle by pulling the snorkel slide forward until it locks into place.  You will locate the snorkel in the upper center section of the sealer.

    4) Place the filled bag with one layer below the snorkel and one layer above the snorkel.  The bag will sandwich the snorkel.  The snorkel will be inside the bag.

    5) Close and lock the cover by pushing down on both the right side and left side lock. You will know it is locked when you hear it click in place.

    6) Turn on the power switch.

    7) Tips for getting the best vacuum: Make sure the product that is in the bag is placed evenly throughout the bag- best placement is in the center of the bag.  This will keep the snorkel from being blocked by the loose bag.  While vacuuming the bag you may need to rub the layers of the bag between your fingers if the loose bag blocks the snorkel.  The sound will change when the snorkel is blocked.  With a little practice you will soon be getting the best tightly vacuumed package.

    8) After the package reaches the correct tightness, momentarily push down with both hands on the seal bar and release and quickly push down again and hold the seal bar with even pressure until the seal light flashes and you hear the beep that indicates the seal is complete.  The reason that the seal bar is pushed down and released and quickly pushed down and held is to prevent the snorkel from being trapped in the sealing area. This is the best method for allowing the snorkel to retract fully.

    9) Push down on both the right side lock & left side lock until the cover releases and lift the lid and you can now remove the sealed bag.

    10) To seal the next bag, turn off the power switch and start at step 3) to begin the process of vacuuming the next bag.

    Note: When the SINBO vacuum sealer gets too hot you will hear a warning sound & the seal will become irregular. The machine should be turned off & allowed to cool. After a cool down, the machine will perform normally again. This warning sound is intended to protect the machine from overheating.

    Points to remember

    Do not try to extend the snorkel when the cover is down.

    Keep the bag from blocking the snorkel.

    Snorkel must retract fully before sealing the bag.

    Turn off the machine before starting the next bag.
