How often do I need to change the oil?

Vacuum sealers perform best when good oil conditions are maintained. Not keeping up with routine oil changes will cause damage to the pump assembly and incur unnecessary expenses. Following our recommendations of preventative maintenance will prolong the life of your machine.

We recommend to change the pump oil on your vacuum sealer based upon the following packing:
 
  •  Wet/Damp Products: every 3 - 6 months
  •  Dry/Solid Products: every 9 - 12 months

This is just a standard guideline. Oil change is dependent on use, but clear oil should be visible in the sight-glass, located on the rear of the machine. Oil that is dirty or has visible debris must be changed immediately. 

Oil can be murky or emulsified, and this is normal. Emulsified oil is a sign that a conditioning cycle needs to be run.
