SOURCE: Tillia Foodsaver VAC 370 won't stop vaccuming to seal

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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Tilia Food Saver Vac 420 sucks air but won't switch to seal mode

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.

SOURCE: I have a foodsaver and it sucks the air out but

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

My rival seal a meal does not vacumn the air out when it is sealing. what is the problem and how do I fix it


There is air leaking in somewhere. Make sure there are no wrinkles in the bag at the sealer location. Also, make sure the seal on the bottom of the bag is complete or the machine will simply suck air from the bottom and out the top. Make sure there are no food particles stuck in or to the sealer mechanism.

I don't have a Rival but have a Foodsaver vacuum sealer. If I have trouble getting the air to vacuum out, I remove the black foam seal from the machine, run it under water for a minute, shake off the excess, and reseat the seal. For some reason, the water helps create a seal. It also helps remove food that may have leaked onto the foam seal.

If the wire that heats and melts the bag is damaged, it may not be sealing the bag completely.

Foodsaver V3840 Won't vacuum air out and wont go to seal. A label states the seals are not removable. Do you know how to fix?


you are not using a "good" bag. Make sure there are no holes and that the bottom and sides of the bag are properly sealed. It will run all day and not pull the air out if the seal is broken anywhere.

Foodsaver wont vacuum v3230


Make sure you put the bag in as it's designed to go in, I s**t you not I tried to use a wider foodsaver bag and cut it down but I inserted it the opposite way than it was intended to go in and it would NOT vacuum the air out. So I cut another bag to test if inserting it the correct way would matter....and it TOTALLY worked fine! Crazy how I couldn't get it to work the other way.
