You can not vacum liquid. If you do soups or stews freeze first in plastic container and pop out and freeze frozen food in bag. Also when doing fresh meats freeze just enough to solidify the jucies about 1-2 hours them vacum. I have had mine for five years and through trial and error have found this works excellent. Hope it helps, good luck.

Foodsaver troubleshooting


The same thing happened to mine and I found a really,really inexpensive way to resolve it. I don't use original foodsaver bags and I found out that their thickness might not be detected correctly so it won't vacuum. To compensate for this, I used an ordinary piece of notebook paper. I cut it to a size of 4 1/2" by 1 1/2". I set the long side in the middle of the liquid catching tray and let it lean back towards the heat strip. Make sure it doesn't cover the heat strip or it won't seal. Now I inserted the bag as the directions say, close and lock the top, and it vacuums and seals perfectly. b40a3e78-1fd3-4c38-9291-c5c4e3885648.jpg

The V2240 does not seal or vacuum at this particular step. The motor runs, the unit buttons are working but the vacuum, sealing action does not work..... Any ideas ..... And yes It was plugged in !


It's possible that liquid is getting into the sealer or the seal is dirty. Here's a link for a pdf that explains possible problems and solutions.

My food saver won't vacuum. It worked beautifully last salmon season but now it makes a lot of noise but barely sucks.


Does it have the black rubber gaskets like my V845 Foodsaver? If so, make sure that you wet down the black rubber gaskets like with a wet paper towel before each sealing, and of course make sure the edge of the cut bag is between the two black rubber gaskets. Hope this helps you.

I have a foodsaver and it sucks the air out but won't seal. What do I do? We're trying to save some frozen fish and it just sucks and sucks but doesn't stop or seal. Any ideas?


The bag is wrinkled or the gaskets are leaky, it has to pull down to a set vacuum in order to shut off and heat the strip to seal the bag. For the right now dilemma try pressing down on the lid while it's vacuuming and start looking for gaskets at foodsaver.com
