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.

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

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.

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
