Foodsaver V3040 won't vaucum air

I have used the foodsaver about 4 times over the course of a year and half. Used it last night for 6 pieces of salmon and now won't pull a vaucum. I cut some bags for specific sizes, it will seal the bag. but when I attempted to vacuum and seal it will not vacuum. It sounds like it is vacuuming but no air is pulled out of the bag.

SOURCE: Foodsaver V2440 won't vacuum air out

If your FoodSaver is more than a couple years old, the gaskets have probably gotten compressed. Especially if you use it often or store it with the lid in "latched" position.
FoodSaver's website has replacement gaskets, $3 each, but it's hard to match the right gasket with the V2440. I called and got confirmation: it's this one. http://www.foodsaver.com/Product.aspx?id=r&cid=0&pid=294
Same gasket, upper and lower, even though it's listed as "Upper" on the Web page. You can also call them at 877-777-8042 and order Part # T910-00075.
Meanwhile, I've had good luck with soaking the old gaskets in warm water for a few minutes, then letting them air-dry. It seems to restore their sealing power for a day or two at most, but that's enough for me to vac up my weekly freezer groceries.

This is likely happening because the unit cannot detect that a vacuum has formed, and the gaskets around the vacuum channel are 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.

SOURCE: My foodsaver v2240 will no

On the lids underside, on the left and right, you will see two black rubber round bumpers. These are the switch activators. Use the back (not the tip) of a pen on push lightly on both sides you should hear a clicking sound when the switch makes contact. Sometimes they do get stuck and cause the vacuum not to finish it's cycle.

Foodsaver V3840 Won't vacuum air out and wont go to seal. A label states the seals are not removable. Do you know how to fix?


you are not using a "good" bag. Make sure there are no holes and that the bottom and sides of the bag are properly sealed. It will run all day and not pull the air out if the seal is broken anywhere.

I am on my 2nd foodsaver. My 1st one stopped working, which I later found out, was probably due to the bottom gasket. My 2nd one had the same problem. I called FoodSaver, and they suggested that I flip...


I replace my gasket with a piece of 3/8" Poly Foam Caulk Saver (found mine at Home Depot - @$2.00 for 20'). It's a snug fit in the gasket groove. Cut long enough so that the ends touch tightly. It will create a good air seal and works well.

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.

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.
