I Won an Old Tilia FoodSaver on EBAy for $42
It's the one Made In Italy, and seems to be in good condition.
I have a couple other Vac Sealers, but they do a terrible job on wet stuff
I have a couple questions???
The vacuum pump draws hard, but it takes forever to evacuate the air from a bag. My $5 Garage Sale Find will crush a pop can, and complete the cycle in about 15 seconds, and the Old Tilia FoodSaver takes about a full minute to accomplish the same task.
How fast/slow are these older Tilia FoodSaver Vac Sealers?
Could it be as simple as replacing the foam seals?
I ran water thru it and even a little silicone(Armoral) spray per the manufacturer's instructions and the time to vac did not change. It's still very slow.
Also, water leaked out the bottom plug, when I ran water thru it.
Is this normal, or do I need to replace the bottom plug seal?
Here's a link to the manufacturer's Site: http://web.iwebcenters.com/professionalmarketing/Nozzel.ivnu
Anyone have an instruction manual for these Italian Made Vac Sealers?
