keeping my FoodSaver going

I have long relied on my FoodSaver to seal up leftovers. I create bags out of the plastic rolls that I buy, vacuum seal the leftovers, and put them in the freezer. They are preserved for a long time without frost or freezer burn.

FoodSaverOn one recent day, however, the “Tray Full” light was on and it would not seal. The drip tray was not full, but I tried to clean everything thoroughly. No change. The tray looked and felt to me as if it wasn’t seated properly. Terry agreed that it looked warped.

I went to the FoodSaver web site and found the parts section. Drip trays were listed, but not for my model. I called the 800 number and the agent found my part. Shipping was more than the part, but that was OK. The new tray arrived fairly promptly. I installed it and it clicked into place. I tried to seal a bag of food. All went well. I tried to seal up my leftover falafel mix which had been sitting in a plastic container in the freezer. My FoodSaver worked exactly as it was supposed to.

I’m glad to have my FoodSaver up and running again, and I’m glad I didn’t have to buy a new one.
