The Heat seal strip is a crucial barrier between the heating element and the bag in your heat sealer machine. Old tape causes poor sealing and can lead to a broken heating element and a broken sealer. These Strips should be replaced when they appear warn, discolored or if sealing isn”t perfect. If the only problem you are having with your vacuum sealer is the heat strip is not sealing completely, and will not maintain the vacuum created, then you should try replacing the heat strip. These Strips are slightly wider and longer than necessary, allowing you to easily cut them down to the perfect size for your model. Just peel tape from the roll and place on the correct area – Over the wire for vacuum sealers, under the wire for impulse sealers. Be sure to clean the strip location with Goo Gone before placing the new piece of tape. This tape is suitable for virtually all FoodSaver models including 4800, 2244, 3240, 4440, 4865, 3880, 3460, 2840, 3840, 3835, 2440, 2450, 2860, 2240, 2840, FM2000, FM2100, GameSaver, Professional.
