    I recieved a phone call from one of your representatives and a manual was sent to me via e-mail after posting my message. I thank you for your help in this matter. She also did not understand why I was sent to a website that told me I had to pay for an answer to my problem. I am currently in the process of sending her the site address.

    Thank you.

I did not get a manual, but I will NOT pay to have a question answered when I received this as a gift. BAD company policy!

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.

How to operate a Salton vacuum bag sealer?


HOW TO MAKE A BAG

1. Place the BAG SEALER on a firm level surface adjacent to a power supply socket. We suggest the bag sealer be positioned away from the edge of the work surface allowing plenty of clear space for making the bags.

2. Take the polythene roll and insert it in the trough in the sealer, positioning it so that the film is pulled of the roll from the underneath.

3.Polythene roll supplied by Salton (Cat No. 1121) is a high grade film suitablefor use in a microwave oven, boil-in-the-bag cooking and for storing in the freezer. Replacement rolls are obtainable from stockists, or in the case of difficulty, from Pifco Servive Department.

4. Plug in to mains supply socket and switch on.

5. To make the first seal on a new roll of polythene, lift up the cover and pull out enough film to project an inch (2.5 - 3 cm) or so outside the casing.

6.Now press the lid down firmly so that both the red and green indicator lights come on. In a short time - approximately 6 seconds - the green seal light will go out. AS soon as this happens lift the lid and peel of the film.DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PEEL THE FILM AWAY BEFORE THE GREEN SEAL LIGHT GOES OUT.

7.NOTE - when closing the lid and applying pressure two distinct clicks will be heard.
theses are the switches which operate the two functions of the BAG SEALER.
First click - Operates the air extraction motor. Vacuum light (RED) ON.
Second click - The sealing wire is energised. Seal (GREEN) and vacuum light (RED) both on.

8. We suggest that you famillarise yourself with the pressure mechanism before you begin using your BAG SEALER. It is perfectly safe to operate either the seal or vacuum functions with out using any polythene roll.

9. After several uses deposits of polythene on the sealing wire can reduce the effectiveness of the seal. Theses deposits of polythene can be removed by operating the seal mechanism without any polythene across the wire.

10. Having sealed one side of the bag, pull out the film to the desired bag width (MAXIMUM WIDTH is 2.9 cm / 11 1/4 inches) and seal again by closing the lid and pressing down hard.

11. As soon as the Green seal light goes out, lift the lid and peel the bag away. Ensure no film adheres to the sealing wire.

12. This seal creates your first bag and at the same time the first seal for the next bag.

SEALING A FILLED BAG (WITHOUT AIR EXTRACTION)

1.Make sure that no food or liquid remains in the top portion of the bag close to where the seal will be made as this may effect the effectiveness of the seal.

2. Place the open end of the of the bag over the sealing wire making sure that the film is flat WITH NO FOLDS OR CREASES ALONG THE LINE OF THE SEAL.

3.Close the lid and press down firmly to make the seal.

EXTRACTING AIR FROM A FILLED BAG.

REMEMBER: Do not extract air from bags containing liquid !!!

1. After filling the bag and making sure that the sealing area is free from food particles, place the open end of the bag over the sealing wire and place the black air extraction nozzle well inside the bag. It is important to ensure the the two edges of the bag under and over the nozzle are straight and not creased in any way to ensure an air tight seal !

2.Depress the lid gently until the red light comes on and hold this position to operate the air extractor. (DO NOT press so hard as to activate the the green light and therefore the sealing wire).

3. As the air is being extracted it is sometimes of help to hold the bag with your hand and gently move the contents around to help channels of air to form, so aiding extraction. Depending on the the nature of the porosity of the food some unavoidable air pockets may form but moving the contents around these can be minimised.

4.Once all the air has been extracted increase the pressure on the lid until the green light comes on. This must be done in one continuous movement, otherwise the air might seep back into the bag. Once again the bag should not be pulled away from the bag sealer until the green light goes out. Pressure on the lid should be released, the lid lifted and the bag peeled away.

How do I work a Salton vacuum bag sealer (Model BS-20)? I can not figure out how to get the air out of the bag.


This style of vacuum sealer has to use a special bag with a " dimpled " surface to let the air escape through the pinch jaws of the vacuum sealer.

The folowing web site has bags and rolls that can be cut ro make any size of bag you require. You can buy on line direct from the manufacturer as well as purchase more industrial vacuum packers

V2240 doesn't seal bags with liquid in it


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.
