Bags are microwave safe when used as directed.
There are three possible reasons why this is happening.
Probable Cause 1:
The pump is lifting off the bag as you pump.
Be certain to maintain complete contact between the pump and bag as you pump. This is done most simply by keeping the bag and pump placed firmly on a flat surface as you pump.
Probable Cause 2:
Food is caught in the vacuum bag valve or bag zipper.
If you are vacuum sealing substances that are powdery, oily, salty or could otherwise interfere with the valve closure or bag zipper, try wrapping these substances separately before vacuum sealing.
Probable Cause 3:
Pump is not correctly aligned over the bag's vacuum valve.
Check that you have placed the pump on the appropriate location on the bag, as indicated by an arrow. This specially designed valve is not to be removed.
The zipper is not closed securely.
Ensure that the zipper is completely sealed before pumping the bag.
The screw top of the pump handle has become detached during cleaning and/or disassembly.
Place the two halves of the screw top around pump handle and simply snap together. Be certain that the screw top will face pump body when assembling. Place top handle back into pump body and screw into place.
