SOURCE: My foodsaver Vac 420 Vacuum Sealer won't heat and

This is likely happening because the unit cannot detect that a vacuum has formed, and because of this, the unit will not seal the bags, 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.

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.

Cannot get it to vacuum.


Does it try to vacuum but never flattens the bag? Make sure the bag you are using is completely sealed on the opposite end. Otherwise, the seal on the sealer is probably allowing air to leak into the sealer. If it has a foam sealer, I've found it sometimes helps to run the foam sealer under water, squeeze out the excess water, reinsert the foam sealer (make sure it is seated all the way) and then try again to seal the bag.

Why does the vacuum sealer not seal the bag nor seal?


wow when I ran my food business I seemed the only one that could get this thing to seal right every night , Im gonna say it was because I wasn't in a big hurry , these machines work great but there not fast it takes sometimes 5/10 minutes to get a good seal on them , and you cant overload them either , when it comes to these less is more , makes for a easier time using them

allow the food to stop about two inches from top edge of bag , and wipe any loose food from the sealing surface (inside) as this will affect the seal as well

Vacum works heatseal does not seal can i replace seal


Sealing always tends to be the problem with FoodSaver because during the course of normal wear and tear, the sealing strip and wire will naturally need to be replaced.

You can get replacement heating wires and strips at www.elementandteflon.com

We started out selling just replacement parts for heat impulse sealers but we kept on getting customer requests for FoodSaver parts so we've added that section to our website.

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.

V3460: no response when pressing seal and inserting bag. What should I do? Thanks


  • Assuming that the unit is plugged in and the plastic bag is in the proper position.........
  • Press firmly and equally on both sides of the cover (where the three raised ridges are on each side). The 2 micro switches that start the vacuum motor are located there and require firm pressure to operate properly.
