Default Does anyone elses FoodSaver 1040 have a pimple on the heat bar?

Bought this one as a bargain from Tuesday Mornings. It's an older model. The kit included several bags and while I don;t see much difference in the bag design, compared to newer bags, I do see a difference in the way they seal.

A few of the most recent bags I have sealed have a bubble in the seal that corresponds with a pimple on the heat bar. As best as I can discern, the pimple is a a joint in the heat bar.

Problem is, some of my bags lose their seal and this is the only point in the seal that isn't consistent.

I have been doing a second quick seal to mitigate this.

Anyone else familiar?
