I am at my wits end with this POS. I have a Foodsaver V2490 for about 3 years and never really got it to work right. My issues have always never gotten the air out. I have replaced the gaskets 3 times since that is what the Foodsaver people say is wrong with it. It seems to blow the gaskets out of the bottom channel most times. Does anyone have some suggestions? I did buy it a Cabelas and they have a decent return policy, so I might just take it back and see if they will take it back.
