I bought a Foodsaver V3020 awhile back and have only used it twice. The first time I bagged 12 bags of pastrami and I had 2 bags that wouldn't vacuum.. I didn't think to much of it. Tonight I was bagging my roast beef and I had 6 bags that wouldn't vacuum. I am using the 8" roll and cut each bag the same length and sealed one end twice. I did everything exactly the same and one bag would vacuum and the next wouldn't then the next would just fine so I don't think it's the machine. It might be me but I tried doing everything exactly the same and even tried different ways with the ones that wouldn't vacuum. I even took the meat out and tried it empty and still no vacuum.
Has anyone ever had this problem? Am I doing something wrong or could I have a defective roll? Oh yea, all the bags came from the same roll.
I'm just kind of frustrated right now because the rolls aren't cheap and I just threw a bunch away.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance!
