Can I freeze peeled pumpkin without par cooking


Yes. Peel and scoop out the seeds. Cut into about 1 inch chunks. Put it into a freezer bag loosely (or a food saver (sealer) bag - preferred). Will last about a year in the freezer. Don't pack too tightly in the bag or it will stick together.

I have wasted quit a bit of the bags because the food saver is not sealing completely. It leaves a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch unsealed therefore I can not vacuum seal. What am I doing wrong


Try making a seal with nothing liquid in bag, check seal on bag after. If seal looks good it could just be liquid getting on seal area causing it not to seal. There are tips online on how to help prevent this (example: placing rolled up paper towel sheet). If seal still looks bad than you may have a bad spot on the heat seal wire.

V3840 heat strip doesn't get hot


Could be the heating element (wire that gets hot enough to melt plastic) is going bad, how long have you been sealing bags with the unit? If you have used it for some time there is the possibility of build up plastic/residue on the the wire or the surface that actually comes in contact with the bag as I would suspect there is a coated surface the element heats up as opposed to the element / wire coming in contact with the plastic itself!

Food saver V485 heat sealer isn't sealing my bags when closing one end to make an bag.


Heating Element / Wire - After heavy use of the vacuum sealer, it is natural for the heating element to break. The amount of seals per sealing wire is dependent on your timer setting, how often you use your vacuum sealer and how thick your vacuum bags are. When you replace the heating element, we usually recommend you replace the sealing strip as well. Different machines have different sizes of heating elements but we carry five stock elements.

How do you fill the gas tank?


IM SORRY BUT THAT IS FUNNY.

No seriously now.....if the release in the trunk wont work then the relaese may be stuck, frozen, or broken.

While you are pulling the one in the trunk, you or someone else use something like a small screwdriver to pop the lid open, then leave it open till you find out whats wrong with the release.

By the way, just so you know, those gas doors will not stop anyone from syphoning your gas. A screwdriver will pop that door open in 1/2 second, its more cosmetic and a slight deterent.

I am unable to open the canister to remove the old bag, unclipping the 2 clips on the side does not release the canister. What am I doing wrong?


Overtime the dirt canister can get somewhat stuck. Once you unclip it, you will need to apply some force and pull down. The dirt canister should release.
