My food saver 370 vacuum suction is weak, as evidenced by the food saver bag does not totally evacuate. I've got the bottom panel off. The vacuum pump seems to be functioning. What should I check?

Why does my Electrolux epic 6000 sr shut off with suction?


Hi,

If this Epic 6000 is shutting off when you either just turn it on or while vacuuming with it...it\'s one of several things...1. Change the bag if you\'ve been picking up a lot of "fine" dust such as drywall dust or carpet freshener powder. That\'s ******* them. 2. Being the machine is over 22 yrs. old, the suction control valve inside either needs to be replaced or just cleaned well. This is the usual cause of the vac shutting off especially if you\'ve tried the dial in several different settings. Hope that helps!

My Rival food saver does not vacuum air out


We discovered we were not moving the bags in far enough to be grabbed properly. After pushing in the bag before closing the unit we found it started sealing properly. This was on an older system, so be sure the bags you're sealling are between the black rubber rectanglar sections before closing the door.

If this is for a canister, be sure the rubber around the lid is seated properly. The rubber can be removed, cleaned and wiped dry. Clean out the lid and dry it too. Reseat the rubber seal and try again... Hope this helps.

The suction on the Kirby Ultimate g is very weak


you probably have a small leak somewhere. it doesn't take much to lose suction. make sure everything is sealed between the vac and bag and make sure there's not a small hole in the bag. the impeller should be alright unless, you've vacuumed up something very hard like a small
coin or something.if the impeller becomes cracked , it will have to be replaced.

Poor suction (new bag, clean filter, clear hose)


check the impeller on the moter it may be missing a fin or two (question does it make any unusual noise or vibration ?)

What is vaccum packing?


Vacuum packing is a method of storing food and presenting it for sale. Appropriate types of food are stored in an airless environment, usually in an air-tight pack or bottle to prevent the growth of microorganisms. The vacuum environment removes atmospheric oxygen, protecting the food from spoiling by limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria or fungi, and preventing the evaporation of volatile components. Vacuum packing is commonly used for long-term storage of dry foods such as cereals, nuts, cured meats, cheese, smoked fish, coffee, and crisps and also for shorter-term storage of fresh foods such as vegetables, meats, and liquids such as soups.
Vacuum packing is also used to reduce greatly the bulk of non-food items. For example, clothing and bedding can be stored in bags evacuated with a domestic vacuum cleaner or a dedicated vacuum sealer. This technique is sometimes used to compact household waste, for example where a charge is made for each full bag collected.

Check the suction at the vac, without the hose, if it is strong, then you hose is clogged. If it is weak, filters could be the problem, one is the back where the bag sits, the other is on the top, you can see it when you raise the lid.
