OR...

are you cutting down on sealing times as advised? You might be melting thru the bag at the seal bar. Thatís my bet...

Remember that lid is being pulled down by an increasing vacuum, and as the vacuum increases, more pressure is applied to the warm seal bar and the heated bag material.

To test this theory, reduce the seal time to the absolute minimum and then run several cycles to test.
