Figured it out - the wire broke! It took me a while to notice it. This thing hasn't even done 500 bags - I know b/c I ordered a package of 500 and I still have about half of them. GRRR!

I hate it when new stuff breaks. At least it's an easy and fairly inexpensive fix even if the timing is inconvenient.

Glad you figured it out!

This happened to mine too. My impulse sealer came with a replacement wire, so I'm using that right now. I do think I had the heat set too high, and now I am being more careful about scraping off any bits of the shrink wrap between each time I seal. I think I will take reinbeau's advice and order a round wire to have on hand, since this replacement one will probably break too.

half jokingly... will the cheapest Wilton "wire" cake slicer and the burner on the stove work in a pinch - on a silicone mat placed on top of an upside down cookie sheet?
