I had to take mine apart and clean the vacuum line out. It got tiny amounts of liquid in it over time and did the same thing. Before you take it apart, try setting the adjustment screw on the back. It's for altitude but, a slight turn could get you the results you need.

Thanks to Mikeytheeye!!!
I became frustrated and figured I had nothing to lose. I had no idea what a vacuum switch was, but I took it step by step and moved on. It happens to be the round brown piece that has the tube coming in on the board.You have to remove the six small screws to the board and flip it. I tried to remove the "star" screw without removing the switch from the board, couldn't do it (also, I only had a t25 star screw attachment that worked at first, but started to strip). You can turn the switch but it does not open. I waited until the morning to make a home depot run and got a t27 star attachment and a soldering kit (only $18). From there, you just touch the two points and the switch comes off. I also got the contact cleaner ($3) and let soak. After cleaning it out and letting it dry I put everything back together and nothing happened. I took everything apart again and I tightened the star screw down almost all the way. Put everything back together and presto - the sealer worked after the vacuum cycle. For the record, we have a Foodsaver v345 model. Thank you for all the help.

This is likely happening because the unit cannot detect that a vacuum has formed, and as a result, the unit never "turns on" the heating element to seal the bag, 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.
