Things to remember...
‧ Light touch.
‧ Preheat 3 seconds.
‧ Move slowly or quickly depending on the thickness of the hag.
‧ Seal half the bag then flip the bag over and cross the initial seal line when sealing the second half.
‧ Have patience when first using your sealer. It takes some practice to become comfortable with the sealing motion. It is a little like dancing. Soon, you will have the "feel of the seal."
‧ During usage, if the Sealer melts a hole in the bag being sealed, move more quickly.
‧ If any part of the bag is not sealed entirely when the sealing motion is complete, simply re-apply the sealer to the unsealed part and move it over the area until a seal is achieved. Make sure that the interior walls of the bag are clean and that the opposite interior walls of the bag are touching one another.
