Fresh oil in your vacuum sealer ensures optimal performance! If your oil looks cloudy, white or murky, it’s time for a change. (Usually once per month, depending on usage)
It’s easy. Just like your car, your vacuum sealer needs an oil and exhaust filter change from time to time. To do this you will need a 2.5mm hex key to remove the rear panel so that you can access the pump. Depending on your unit, you will need either a 5 or 6mm hex key to remove the bolts and open the pump. To change the exhaust filter, you will also need a set of pliers and a flat head screwdriver. Fill the oil so that the sight glass is between half and three quarters full. Exhaust filters should be changed at least every 6 months depending on use. See below for the handy step-by-step illustrated instructions.
