    I've had my FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer V3460 for a little over a year and have never had trouble with it. I only use it about once a month and clean it every time I use it. I pulled it down to use it and found that it Seals fine but will not vacuum. I've checked all of the parts and there are no crumbs or particles that would be blocking it. The machine knows when I put a bag in and it starts the process to Vacuum, but it doesn't pull the air out. Is there something else I could check for or is there a part that is possibly bad inside?

Perhaps the bags you are using are not suitable. If they are too thin it will not vacuum air out.

Cannot get it to vacuum.


Does it try to vacuum but never flattens the bag? Make sure the bag you are using is completely sealed on the opposite end. Otherwise, the seal on the sealer is probably allowing air to leak into the sealer. If it has a foam sealer, I've found it sometimes helps to run the foam sealer under water, squeeze out the excess water, reinsert the foam sealer (make sure it is seated all the way) and then try again to seal the bag.

Seals but won't draw all the air out. Seals fine


That could be a bad foam seal not completing suction, A piece of debris that got sucked into vacuum line and or in pump, or in some cases a crack in a elbow or pump housing.

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.

It won't seal it doesn't get hot it vacuums ok


There is a heating element in your unit that seals the bags. Most of the units you cannot replace the heating element. The company is pretty good about warrantying the units. They go by the number on the plug to tell if the unit is still in warranty. Give them a call. 877-777-8042
