I'm on my 3rd one now and it died like all the others. The first one I ever had our own buzz mcmanus gave me, when it gave out a bought another FoodSaver sealer under $100 and it died, and now my 3rd one that I paid around $130 for has died. SERIOUSLY! I use this thing when I process my deer and no other time at all. I clean it and store it properly as recommended. I figure this last vacuum sealer sealed maybe (5) deer for me.

What do I need to do here? Have you all had any better experiences with other types? Do I need to be looking at a commercial vacuum sealer? I'm not to the point that I want to use butcher paper - really don't want to to do that.
