It is a heating element and heating elements fail. Contact the maker to see if they do spare parts. The only thing you can do is check the contacts on the end to make sure they haven't failed.

Chances are that you foam gasket are not doing their job anymore. You can make a test by humidifying them with a paper towel. If it's works, you are due to replace them. They will usually last about 2 to 3 years depending on the use.

They are available through ebay or Amazon

The black foam seals are not doing their job anymore then. You may humidify them with a paper towel for a quick but it won't last. The vacuum sealer is expected to reach a certain level before automatically sealing it.

There is foam replacments available through ebay and amazon.

There's could be several elements to look into;
-is the vacuum still working or it stopped.?
.if it stopped without sealing chances are that the heating wire is broken.
if it's still try to vaccum, the seals probably not doing their and the expected vacuum levels are not reached.
To test that you can moister the foams seals with a paper towels.
If that worked, think about replacing the seals.

To deal with the sealing wire, you usually have to pull off a teflon tape to see it. I do believe that you can have a replacement for the wire. I personally never had to replace one.
