Below is a document for download that explains how to place the bag properly. 

When opening the bag to add your product, please fold the opening of the bag inside out about an inch, to prevent contamination and to keep the edge of the bag dry for a good seal. 

"Snap" the bag once the product is inside to reduce the amount of wrinkles the bag has.

The bag should rest 1 inch over the sealing bar, the opening of the bag should barely rest against the body of the chamber.

CAUTION: PLEASE SWITCH OFF THE MACHINE AND UNPLUG THE POWER CORD FROM THE SOCKET BEFORE ANY CLEANING OR MAINTENANCE IS STARTED.

We recommend sanitizing the inside of chamber before each use and after each use.
The chamber should be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized during use if the products you are packaging change drastically, such as between raw meats and dried goods.
Be careful spraying around the posts that the seal bar rests on. Do not spray into the opening because liquid can pool in the bladder assemby and corrode the electrical connection.

All the internal and external surfaces of the machine are then washed thoroughly with hot soapy water and then rinsed.

The lid can be cleaned using warm water and soap.

The seal bar can be lightly sprayed with a sanitizer/disinfectant and wiped down, but should not be submerged in liquid.

The stainless steel body can be cleaned with a stainless steel cleaner.

The volume boards should be taken out and scrubbed in a large sink using hot water and soap.

HACCP Standards vary from state to state; this cleaning process is meant as a general guideline.

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
1. Lid gasket
- Make sure lid gasket and the contact area is clean to ensure proper sealing during vacuum process.
- Particles in the lid gasket area will cause bad contact between the lid and the body.


2. Sealbar
- Make sure the teflon tape is clean with no burn through lines on it to ensure proper sealing of the
pouches.
- If the Teflon tape has burnt through, replace it immediately to avoid bad sealing on the pouches and
burning the upper red silicone strip.
NOTE: Proper sealing time will produce a waffle pattern on the sealing line of the pouch.
Too high of a sealing time will melt the pouch and burn the Teflon tape sooner.

We recommend a seal time of 1.5-2.0.

3. Oil
- Oil level and oil condition should be checked weekly, and a conditioning cycle should be ran weekly as well.
(Level and condition should be checked before production begins when the machine is cool.)
- If oil is murky, cloudy, has "floaties" or sediments in it, then it must be change immediately.
Contaminated oil can cause pump to be inefficient, sluggish, or even tripping the electrical
breaker. 

- Please see MVS Series Oil Information for further information.
