Can't open my foodsaver for cleaning

Can't open my foodsaver 3825 for cleaning. I push on the green buttons but it seems as if another part inside the machine is preventing me from opening the unit.

I had the same problem and got this information from Foodsaver:

Turn Foodsaver unbit on and press the cabncel button. That should release the unit for cleaning.

It worked for me!

Food saver is stuck shut


I experienced the same problem today. I forgot to reinstall the drip tray prior after cleaning it. I closed the Foodsaver back up and it got stuck in the closed position and would not open no matter how hard I tried. I would push the green tabs and attempt to rotate it as per the instructions and it still would not open. I was able to resolve the issue by taking a flat head screw driver and carefully prying a few inches in from the sides of the machine. More specifically, the drip tray is basically a rectangle catch basis with two half circles on either end. Place the screw driver at the location of the half circles and gently pry at the parting line where you would normally put the bags while pushing both the green tabs. Once the tray is reinstalled it should work fine. If your like me, you wont make this mistake again. Good luck!

FoodSaver v3825 (I believe it's the same as the v3840) will not pivot open so I can clean the drip tray - the release buttons are releasing, but it is hung up on something.


Mine did that when I interrupted the cycle. I plugged it in and let the motor fully open the sealing chamber then I was able to pivot open the machine.

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.

The Foodsaver V3460 will not open for cleaning. The left side appears to be releasing, but not the right. Your assitance is appreciated. Thanks, Steve


Just plug your unit back in and press the stop button, then it will release it automatically when you press the 2 green buttons, took a while for us to figure it out.

Camera problem powering on


I took my battery out, used a pencil eraser to clean off the metal area on the bottom and gently scraped it with a knife. Presto, the camera comes on without having to push down ******* the battery.
