SOURCE: Foodsaver Food Sealer Vacuum V2240 T: Foodsaver Professional II Turbo. Vacuum pump work...

This is likely happening because the unit cannot detect that a vacuum has formed, and as a result, the unit never "turns on" the heating element to seal the bag, with the gaskets around the vacuum channel being the probable culprit. The Foodsaver gaskets will deform and/or dry out with time, just like in any device, but you don't necessarily have to replace them. I've tried this inexpensive solution on my own Foodsaver V2490, and it works perfectly.
Buy some food-grade silicone grease and apply it to both the upper and lower gaskets. I remove the gaskets and coat both sides with a thin layer of grease before replacing them in their respective channels. And since this grease will be absorbed and/or dry out with time, you will have to do this occasionally, so I also flip the gaskets (i.e. turn them over) whenever I apply the grease.
You can buy a 2 oz container of silicone grease at any dive store, or you can buy it over the Internet by searching for "Trident silicone grease".
This is a link where you can buy it for around $7.00:
Dolphin Dive Center
I do not work at this dive center, but I am a scuba diver and already had some grease that I use for the numerous rubber gaskets in my gear. The 2 oz. jar will last you several years, and you will find many other uses for it around the house since the grease will last longer than a spray.

My Food Saver V3835 will not seal canisters. It seals bags AOK but there appears to be no vacuum generated through the extension tube. We have tried several different canisters and covers. I have also...


The negative pressure is very slight and almost not detectable when using canisters for food storage. Once the system is activated, and allowed to run until timed out, the canister should have pulled all the oxygen from the canister. Foodsaver only canisters are designed for the V3835 for vacuum sealing.

How to Vacuum Package Using Your FoodSaver® Vacuum
Packaging Canister
NOTE: FoodSaver® Vacuum Packaging Canisters can only be used with
a FoodSaver® appliance that has an Accessory Port. Please check your
QuickStart Guide to see if your appliance has one.
1. Place your FoodSaver® appliance on a fl at, dry surface and plug the power
cord into a standard electrical outlet.
2. Place the item(s) to be vacuum packaged inside the canister. Leave at least
one inch (1”) between the contents and the rim of the canister.
3. Wipe rim to ensure it is clean and dry.
4. Place the lid on top of the canister. If the canister has latches, put them
in an upright position so that the lid fi ts on the base. Push the latches
downward until they snap into place.
5. Insert one end of the Accessory Hose into the Accessory Port on your
FoodSaver® appliance.
6. Insert the other end of the Accessory Hose into the hole on the top of the
canister lid. Twist the gray tip of hose while inserting to ensure a tight fi t.
7. Follow the steps for vacuum packaging as outlined in your QuickStart
Guide.
8. Remove the Accessory Hose from the Accessory Port on the appliance
before vacuum packaging in FoodSaver® Bags.
Allow hot foods to cool to room temperature before vacuum packaging. Otherwise, the
contents may bubble up out of the canister.
How to Open the FoodSaver® Vacuum Packaging Canister
To open, press and hold down the gray rubber button in the center of the lid
until you no longer hear air escaping. This will release the vacuum and allow you
to easily remove the lid.
