Question about Sunbeam JARDEN FoodSaver V3840 Upright Vacuum T000 18001 T000 18001

1 Answer

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.

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!

The tray full light stays on even though the tray is empty.this prevent the foodsaver from operating.I have tried unplugging,recleaning the tray but nothing works


I had the save problem with my 3400 series.
The first time i was able to let it dry and it worked alright (48 hours).
The second time even this did not work.
If you remove the screws on the bottom of the unit. There are about 10 and pull it down, you will see the sealer assembly and a small circuit board in the middle.
Trace the wires from the drip tray, there are three of them, red white and brown, to the small white plastic JST connector on the small circuit board. Pull said connector gently to disconnect it.
The unit will function perfectly now, although it will no longer have a drip tray sensor of any sort it will function every time all the time.
All in all this took me about 10 minutes.
Thanks!

Can't open my foodsaver for cleaning


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!

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.
