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: My foodsaver v2240 will no

Either the seal to the vacuum foot is not being made due to folds or improper placement, or more likely the filter for the vacuum has gotten plugged. Check out the path to the pump

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.

Why does the vacuum sealer not seal the bag nor seal?


wow when I ran my food business I seemed the only one that could get this thing to seal right every night , Im gonna say it was because I wasn't in a big hurry , these machines work great but there not fast it takes sometimes 5/10 minutes to get a good seal on them , and you cant overload them either , when it comes to these less is more , makes for a easier time using them

allow the food to stop about two inches from top edge of bag , and wipe any loose food from the sealing surface (inside) as this will affect the seal as well

My Vacmaster Pro 130 does not vacuum. What is wrong?


Karen, I am the social media coordinator for ARY VacMaster. Most times when this problem arises with a new machine, it's because there are packing spacers on the under side of the lid that weren't removed. Pull those off and try again. If that doesn't work, Give our technical support department a call at (800) 821-7849. You can always "like" us on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/aryvacmaster) and ask questions to us directly there too. Hope this helps. You can contact me there for quicker answers. :-)

MY FACE HAS WRINKLES , CAN IT MAKE IT ANY SMOOTHER


With age our face will develop wrinkles. These can be very intimidating especially when it appears at early age. But stop worrying because there are natural resources to reduce wrinkles completely.
You can use Moisturizers to moisturize your skin and eliminate wrinkles and an immediate method of prevention. Ultraviolet Radiation is one of the major cause of wrinkles and this can easily be avoided by avoiding direct exposure to sunlight. As the sun makes the skin much moisture, which drains the cells shrink and lose skin. These are some measures against the effect of the sun, like the use of sunscreen that creates a protective layer of the skin.
Proper skin care can also help you to prevent having wrinkles. You should also sleep at least 8 hours a day because by this time our skin cells synthesizes.
Hydrating yourself is very much important. It increases the level of water in the cells your body. This type of folding counters trying to make skin thinner and smoother.
Smoking is also one of the major cause of wrinkles because cigarettes inhibits the release of chemical catalyst and enzymes that catalyze the formation of skin cells and nutrients.

A balance or a good diet can also be helpful to get rid of your wrinkles. It is essential to repair our skin tissues.There is fruit, the cells of the body cells more hypertonic can take more water to an optimal environment for cell phones. These types of foods are promoted as one of main causes of aging is the lack of adequate nutrition. Fatty foods can be put into moderation to be useful, because the stored fat under the skin and can act as insulation to external conditions such as UV rays and extreme.
Also, don't forget to exercise!.

How to operate a Salton vacuum bag sealer?


HOW TO MAKE A BAG

1. Place the BAG SEALER on a firm level surface adjacent to a power supply socket. We suggest the bag sealer be positioned away from the edge of the work surface allowing plenty of clear space for making the bags.

2. Take the polythene roll and insert it in the trough in the sealer, positioning it so that the film is pulled of the roll from the underneath.

3.Polythene roll supplied by Salton (Cat No. 1121) is a high grade film suitablefor use in a microwave oven, boil-in-the-bag cooking and for storing in the freezer. Replacement rolls are obtainable from stockists, or in the case of difficulty, from Pifco Servive Department.

4. Plug in to mains supply socket and switch on.

5. To make the first seal on a new roll of polythene, lift up the cover and pull out enough film to project an inch (2.5 - 3 cm) or so outside the casing.

6.Now press the lid down firmly so that both the red and green indicator lights come on. In a short time - approximately 6 seconds - the green seal light will go out. AS soon as this happens lift the lid and peel of the film.DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PEEL THE FILM AWAY BEFORE THE GREEN SEAL LIGHT GOES OUT.

7.NOTE - when closing the lid and applying pressure two distinct clicks will be heard.
theses are the switches which operate the two functions of the BAG SEALER.
First click - Operates the air extraction motor. Vacuum light (RED) ON.
Second click - The sealing wire is energised. Seal (GREEN) and vacuum light (RED) both on.

8. We suggest that you famillarise yourself with the pressure mechanism before you begin using your BAG SEALER. It is perfectly safe to operate either the seal or vacuum functions with out using any polythene roll.

9. After several uses deposits of polythene on the sealing wire can reduce the effectiveness of the seal. Theses deposits of polythene can be removed by operating the seal mechanism without any polythene across the wire.

10. Having sealed one side of the bag, pull out the film to the desired bag width (MAXIMUM WIDTH is 2.9 cm / 11 1/4 inches) and seal again by closing the lid and pressing down hard.

11. As soon as the Green seal light goes out, lift the lid and peel the bag away. Ensure no film adheres to the sealing wire.

12. This seal creates your first bag and at the same time the first seal for the next bag.

SEALING A FILLED BAG (WITHOUT AIR EXTRACTION)

1.Make sure that no food or liquid remains in the top portion of the bag close to where the seal will be made as this may effect the effectiveness of the seal.

2. Place the open end of the of the bag over the sealing wire making sure that the film is flat WITH NO FOLDS OR CREASES ALONG THE LINE OF THE SEAL.

3.Close the lid and press down firmly to make the seal.

EXTRACTING AIR FROM A FILLED BAG.

REMEMBER: Do not extract air from bags containing liquid !!!

1. After filling the bag and making sure that the sealing area is free from food particles, place the open end of the bag over the sealing wire and place the black air extraction nozzle well inside the bag. It is important to ensure the the two edges of the bag under and over the nozzle are straight and not creased in any way to ensure an air tight seal !

2.Depress the lid gently until the red light comes on and hold this position to operate the air extractor. (DO NOT press so hard as to activate the the green light and therefore the sealing wire).

3. As the air is being extracted it is sometimes of help to hold the bag with your hand and gently move the contents around to help channels of air to form, so aiding extraction. Depending on the the nature of the porosity of the food some unavoidable air pockets may form but moving the contents around these can be minimised.

4.Once all the air has been extracted increase the pressure on the lid until the green light comes on. This must be done in one continuous movement, otherwise the air might seep back into the bag. Once again the bag should not be pulled away from the bag sealer until the green light goes out. Pressure on the lid should be released, the lid lifted and the bag peeled away.

Air bags turned off, and doesnt change gear properly


The air bags need to be worked on by a pro. Did you check the tranny fluid? If not do so and add if needed. If the tranny fluid is fine then start checking all of the vacume lines.

V2240 doesn't seal bags with liquid in it


You can not vacum liquid. If you do soups or stews freeze first in plastic container and pop out and freeze frozen food in bag. Also when doing fresh meats freeze just enough to solidify the jucies about 1-2 hours them vacum. I have had mine for five years and through trial and error have found this works excellent. Hope it helps, good luck.
