For the Keepfresh Home Vacuum Sealer
Do I have to purchase special bags?
1. A: No! Unlike other similar units (which
can cost up to four times as much as ours), you do not need to buy
a certain type of bag for this machine. The bags you use do, however,
need to be bags designed for use as a vacuum bag.
Can I use regular ZipSeal type bags with this unit?
2. A: Unfortunately, no regular ZipSeal type bags
are not designed to hold a regular airtight vacuum.
Do you have ZipSeal bags I can use?
3. A: Yes, our ZipSeal bags are open on the "bottom".
They are 6" x 8" and cost $87.30 for a case of 1,000 - P/N V3Z0608
My machine pulls a vacuum, but it's not a very good one. Why not?
4. A: For the best airtight seal, make sure that
the item you are sealing inside the bag is as close (***Very important!!!***) to the vacuum
nozzle (the silver tube that fits inside the bag) as possible. When
the item is too far away from the nozzle, the plastic collapses in front of the tube and
the machine's sensor tells the machine, that a vacuum has been achieved.
My machine won't pull a vacuum. What's going on?
5. A: There is a plastic plug on the back of
the machine. If you remove this plastic plug, you will see a rubber
cap covering a tube. If that plug falls off or is not there for
some reason, the unit will not pull a vacuum.
Why can't I keep a bag airtight after I press the seal bar?
6. A: On occasion, the vacuum nozzle (the silver
part you see when you pull the vacuum lever forward) will
get stuck when you hit the seal bar. There is an easy solution to
the problem. After pulling a seal on your bag, press the seal bar
and immediately release it. Then immediately press the seal bar
again and wait for the beep telling you that the bag has been properly
I'm trying to seal the bag without the vacuum and it won't create a good heat seal.
7. A: There's a good chance that the heat strips
are worn out. Change the heat strips and it should work just fine.
Why don't my channel machine brand bags work in your sealer?
The bags with the "patterned surface" are designed only to work as vacuum bags in the machines they were
specifically designed (that is why they are so expensive). But you can still heat seal them
in the Keepfresh Home Vacuum Sealer unit. However, you can not vacuum seal them.
Do you have bags that will work in my type of channel machine?
9. A: Yes, we have channel bags that are "patterned, embossed, designed
for use in most popular brand machines and others that REQUIRE this type of bag.

"channel bag" machines?

2. Keepfresh Home Vacuum Sealer can seal "freezer pop" bags - 2.5" x 10.0"

least $42.00 and that is if you have discovered our website.
