Question about FoodSaver V3240 Vertical Vacuum Sealer
When lowering the arm to begin the sealing process, the "NORMAL" and"DRY" indicator lights begin flashing and the unit fails to operate. The vacuum does not turn on and no other buttons function. What's wrong?
The double blinking light indicates fluid in the fluid capture tray. unplug the device from power. Remove the fluid tray carefully and clean it thoroughly. Wipe it and the area from which it came completely dry. pay especially attention to the electrical contacts that match up between the unit and the tray.

Pull out the long rubber piece on the top, clean any debris, replace firmly.

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.

Occasionally, customers have problems locking their Dyson vacuum in the upright position. This is a minor problem common with the Dyson DC07 and DC14 series and can easily be fixed by the customer. This page will show how to fix this problem. Although we show a Dyson DC14 Animal on this page, these instructions will work on any Dyson vacuum in the DC07 and DC14 series.
During shipping, moving parts on a Dyson vacuum can shift in position. One of these parts is a swinging arm in the base of the unit. This arm holds a removable elbow pipe in the vacuum's air passage. This arm can move out of the way so that you can clear out a blockage in the air passage. When this arm is out of position, the vacuum will not lock in the upright position. Fig. 1 Shows the base of a Dyson DC14 Animal locked upright. The red arrow points to the swinging arm. Fig. 2 shows the vacuum with the swing arm out of position. Since the swing arm is lower than it should be, it doesn't line up with the tab on the main body indicated by the red arrow.
Lean the handle of your Dyson all the way back and locate the black button on the right side of the vacuum indicated by the red arrow in Fig. 3.. Press the button down and hold it to unlock the swing arm.
While holding down the black button, pull the swinging arm (Shaded red in Fig. 4) all the way up. Fig. 5 shows the swinging arm in the correct position. Release the black button to lock the swing arm back in place.
The vacuum can now lock in the upright position as shown in Fig. 6. Note how the tab on the swinging arm overlaps the tab on the main body..
