IMy second issue is that after the vacuum stops air seems to rush back into the bag.
I believe you have a problem with the spongy gaskets on your Sealer…they need to be replaced…or cleaned. I use my Foodsaver extensively…prior to and beyond the UMAI usage. I recently replaced gaskets when I experienced Leakage when sealing items in food bags—the air was re-entering the bag in the brief laps between “Sucking” and Sealing.
One other guess on this…it may not be as big an issue wuth your food saver bags versus the UMAI bags because the UMAI bags are thinner walled than the bstandard foodsaver bag—maybe that affects the interface with the gaskets and the seal.
