Check the altitude adjustment. Also, check for food debris in the intake hole, tube or path. Check for debris on the rubber seal around the sealing strip.

After the sound stops and the light goes off, I stop pressing the button, but then the sound starts up again. The machine seals and vacuums properly, but I worried that it makes noise again. thank s


I guess your talking about a foodsaver. The noise is from the vacuum pump and is usually a little loud. You shouldn't need to keep your button pushed. Is it working when you just hit the vac/seal button and release? If your holding it the whole time, it may be starting another cycle.

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.

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

Tillia Foodsaver VAC 370 won't stop vaccuming to seal


My Foodsaver 820 wouldn't stop vacuuming, and after fiddling with it and doing a little research, I located the vacuum switch on the circuit board and de-soldered it (verry simple, only 2 solder points). On the underside of the switch it looks kind of like an allen head screw. NOTE before attempting this, make note of how far the screw is recessed into the housing and/or count how may turns it takes to remove it! I removed the screw and spring and sprayed electrical contact cleaner in the holes and in the hole where there is a little brass disc. (Wear safety goggles for this) The little brass disc is what makes the contacts that turn the pump off after reaching the necessary vacuum. Mine was gummed up and stuck so it would never make contact to shut off. I reassembled it, and re-soldered it back on the board. I then put the whole thing back together and it works like new.

You could probably make the same repair without removing the piece from the board since there is a hole in the circuit board where you can gain access to the screw, but it will be messy. If you have any experience with soldering, it is about as simple as it gets

My Foodsaver Vac 1050 doesn't extract all of the air from the bag


Either the sealing strips are dirty letting air escape or the lips of the bag are turned upwards. Push the front of the bag down towards the bottm chanel and it should work fine. I have had one for eight years now and love it.Ken Vancouver BC
