I'm having a problem with my VP112. When it is pumping down the chamber, the bag inside will inflate causing the machine to not get a tight vacuum on the bag. I even find air in the bag sometimes. What is causing this. I have been so disappointed in this machine. I haven't even sealed 200 bags yet. What am I doing wrong? Everyone likes the VP112 so much. Thank you.

Reel, we need more information to help. First which version do you have? I have the older one with the dials.
What are you packaging? Hot foods will reboil at the lower vacuum levels.
What settings do you have set? Mine is set for 30 seconds for vacuum and 5 second for seal, I use 4 mil bags.
