Sounds like you are on your way to a new one. Others looking at the thread can check the gaskets. They can be replaced for cheap and fix some issue. I have a nearly 20-year old food saver that stoped sealing. New gaskets and works good as new.
Mine just crapped the bed and I’m in for a new and better vac sealer too.
I had a foodsaver v3240 that I loved for almost 8 yrs (best I can remember). I use it all the time. making our own pork & beef sausage, cutting ribeyes from the whole loin, cutting our own boneless chops from the pork loins, beef jerky, lots of smoked jerky & fish, fresh fish & leftovers, etc…..
I’m lost without a vac sealer!
I’ll look at the vac master 360. Never heard of it before today. Can someone point me towards the lady with the discount code if there is one. I don’t recognize the name.
I’m also checking out avidarmor a420 unit. Gets good reviews.
I won’t go back to foodsaver just because they don’t sell replacement gaskets or seals. They referred me to Amazon to buy the kit. I did and still didn’t work. The foam seals from Amazon weren’t the right thickness.
