We carry compatible replacement heating wires and sealing strips for your FoodSaver and Rival Seal-A-meal vacuum sealers. Rather than purchase a new FoodSaver, purchase replacement parts at a fraction of the price. A sealer (including the FoodSaver vacuum sealer) requires maintenance as part of the natural wear and tear cycle of the machine. If you are using your vacuum sealer often, most likely you will need to change the heating wire and sealing strip on a regular basis.
Sealing Strip - This is a PTFE adhesive that serves as a barrier between the heating element and body of the sealer. When the sealer's heating wire has burned through the sealing strip, the heating element will break which could also result in more damage to other sealer parts. We recommend changing the sealing strip whenever you see that the strip appears worn or discolored. The sealing strip we carry measures 14" x 1/2" (L x W) which is slightly wider than FoodSaver sealing strips, but will work on your FoodSaver sealers. We also carry lengths in 10 and 36 yards.
Heating Element / Wire - After heavy use of the vacuum sealer, it is natural for the heating element to break. The amount of seals per sealing wire is dependent on your timer setting, how often you use your vacuum sealer and how thick your vacuum bags are. When you replace the heating element, we usually recommend you replace the sealing strip as well. Different machines have different sizes of heating elements but we carry five stock elements.
