I'm trying to help you - OK? I happen to have a real older model 1050 which has a switch hidden under the lid which simply controls the time before sealing. The older ones did not sense moisture. I have been told more than once that these can be found for peanuts in garage sales! If you find one and it runs then BUY IT!!! I have also used newer models in the 2200 series. UMAi sells a model in the 2400 series that also works well! BTW FS models change frequently but most times they are a marketing ploy of what is packaged with the "model" more the unit itself.

I don't know of any units that do vac only.
If it is a sporadic problem. Check to make sure the sealer bar is cool before you put the bag in. If it is warm enough it will soften the ridges in the bag, or Vacmouse, enough to collapse the ridges preventing the air from being sucked out.

If it does not work at all, then it is time for a new unit. These units do wear out.

sorry to sound like a broken record, but what is the model number? I can't make that out in the photo link you posted. Ron

I bought a new machine, I'll test it out and let you all know the results!
I bought Foodsaver T000-03450 Game Saver (hoping that's the model)

That should work! BTW...thanks for the edit...we try to be helpful here.

Now, do me a favor when you get your new machine. Don't waste all your bags and Vac-mouse strips trying to get the hang of it. Start by not trimming off any of your bag and then if it doesn't seal right, just cut off that part and seal again. I must have sealed my first bag 6 times until I learned how the machine was going to work! Ron

I was at it for TWO HOURS, TWO different food savers (V2860 & V3825) TWO WASTED BAGS and could not get it to seal or vaccum properly!! The bags are too thin.
After viewing vídeos, reading posts and endless cursing and frustration I gave up and emailed for a refund. It's a real shame because I was so excites when my order arrived.
GOOD LUCK!
