The tape trick didn't work for me. Had to cut the wires. Works for now.

Follow this instruction and fix it. God bless you
Plug your FoodSaver vacuum sealer in. Start with the most obvious and then work your way up. In your excitement to use your vacuum sealer, you may have forgotten to plug it in.

  • 2 Check the FoodSaver vacuum sealer bags for holes or leaks. Small leaks or holes can prevent the vacuum sealer from doing its job properly. While it's creating a vacuum on one end of the bag, a small hole can allow air to seep in on the other end.
  • 3 Ensure that food didnt' catch at the point of seal. If you've successfully vacuumed and sealed a bag of food only to find that air seems to slowly seep back in, check the point of seal. Food particles caught at the sealing point can give air just enough room to seep in.
  • 4 Affix the lid to the FoodSaver vacuum sealer canisters. If, after sealing a canister, you can remove the lid without depressing the vacuum release button, the vacuum seal didn't perform properly. Check that you've properly affixed the lid ,and that there are no food particles caught in the lid's rubber gaskets.
  • 5 Leave approximately an inch of free space in the canister before sealing. Sealing a canister that is too full can prevent the FoodSaver vacuum sealer from working. A canister that is too full can cause food particles to get caught in the FoodSaver's vacuum tube.

    Foodsaver vacuum sealer tray full light

    Clean the two little contacts on the tray. Make absolutely sure there isn't anything across the two wires that run the length of the tray. It doesn't take much to trigger the light.

    Get red light off after changing filter

    Depends on which model you have. If it's a red light it might be your full bag indicator. If it's glowing red you might have a clog somewhere .

    V3835 tray full light won't go out after both trays have been emptied and cleaned.

    Hair dryer. Remove both tray inserts and dry thoroughly, paying special attention to the sensor area in the center of the upper tray.

    Status light is red, why? I have a Roomba Discovery.


    If the red light is solid, that means that the Roomba is near to full discharge. If the light is flashing red, then the Roomba is completely out of charge.

    If the Roomba is fully charged, then there may be a fault.

    Here full list of light codes:

    Pulsing Amber - Charging
    Green - Fully Charged
    Amber - Partially Discharged
    Red - Almost Fully Discharged
    Flashing Red - Fully Discharged"

    Red when bag is not full

    The red light will also come on when there is a blockage in the pipes leading to the bag compartment. To test that the light is working correctly, you can unplug the flexible hose from the top of the bag compartment then switch the machine on. The red light should be off, but will come on if you block the hole with your hand. If that test shows the light is working, you need to search for a blockage - which is most likely to be in the flexible hose, but can be in the rigid plastic tube or in the base of the machine (turn it over and look in the little trap-door). Clearing a blockage from the hose can be difficult - you are more likely to be successful if you can devise a way to pull it out rather than trying to push it (as with a broom handle, for example), because pushing may just compact it. Good luck!

    What parts go to a Kirby Shampooer?

    There is a shampooer head with shampooer brushroll, water tank, small hose that hooks to the tank, collection tray

    Need to use the Kirby shampoo. It goes down as wet suds but you pick up the suds with the vacuum when it drys. Fill tank adding 1 cap full of soap (kirby soap only) per level on the side, this attaches on the side where the bag is attached

    After using the shampooer you need to reattach the vacuum bag and main brushroll nozzle as though you were just vacuuming up dirt.


    Lift the front of your kirby up (front part with light) open the handle on the dail in the front (if epquipt), remove the power head, put on height adjustment on highest level, turn dial on front of power head until you see 2 red arrows facing each other, unlock by turning knob, power head should come right off, get shampooer out the power head for shampooer with collection tray, make sure dial is set red on red, put on front of Kirby and lock in, turn dial to green on green arrows, fill tank adding 1 cap full of soap (Kirby soap only) per level on the side, this attaches on the side where the bag is attached, line up arrow and notch and turn, to hook up hose put Kirby down to lowest level, notched end of hose hooks in on tray other end on the tank,on/off switch refers to the foam, Turn machine on to lay the foam & scrub carpet, take shampooer back off to extract the foam once it's dry.

    Good luck.

    Red light stays on

    Most likely the hose or the inlet down by the brush roll has a clog in it. The red light indicates a full bag, but if there is a clog, then it thinks it has a full bag.

    Not sure if yours is a 4499B, couldn't find in the parts list any red light. But most times when there is a red light it is telling you that if it had a bag, it would be full, but in your case, maybe you have a cogged filter and inlet down by the brush roll.
