If your vacuum sealer isn`t sealing the bags all the way through, try increasing the seal time. The bags may need a little more time to properly seal. Also, check your heat seal tape… it may need to be replaced if it has been overly used.
Possible causes of the Red Seal Light Flashing: The unit is overheated. Always allow 20 seconds between seals. Under heavy usage, appliance will shut off automatically and Red Light will flash.
If you want to use your FoodSaver® appliance to re-seal, but not vacuum package a bag (without removing the air first) you can use it on Mylar type (strong, thin polyester) or stiff plastic bags, not any other types. For example, you can re-seal potato chip bags.
There are basically only 3 reasons a vacuum sealer bag will fail: The seal line area was dirty/wet/wrinkled when the bag was sealed or made (if made from a roll). Something in the bag punctured the bag. The bag is defective.
Without the Upper Bag Detection Tray, your FoodSaver® appliance will not the detect bag when inserted in the Vacuum Channel. The Seal indicator flashes to signal an ERROR. This may be caused by an improperly inserted bag. Make sure bag is placed correctly inside Vacuum Channel.
Bags not sealing properly
Seal Time insufficient; increase Seal Time as required. Bag improperly positioned along seal bar; make sure entire bag is over the seal bar and there are no wrinkles in the bag material. Food particles or debris in seal area of bag; wipe inside of bag clean.
The temperature is too high/low
One of the most common reasons a pouch is not sealing properly is because the temperature is not set correctly. Too hot and the film will melt and the paper will burn.
The most common cause of loss of suction is that the filters have become blocked. They may require cleaning or replacing. Another cause could be that the vacuum cleaner hose is blocked.
Clog located in the vacuum hose
Turn the unit on and feel the suction at the end of the hose handle. If there is no or low suction, then the clog is in the hose. You can remove the clog by running a long, stiff object through the hose, such as a butter knife, starting at the wall end.

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.
I bought a house that has a 1970s GE microwave oven that’s built-in above a traditional oven. (Unfortunately, I can’t locate a model number for the microwave.) I’d appreciate having information about the “food temp control,” which is on the front of the oven. There is a wire probe that goes from the inside of the microwave to the food. I assume that relates to the “food temp control.” I’d appreciate having any information about how to use the “food temp control.” Also, I ‘d like to know wh
I serious doubt that probe would work any longer for they go out in ten tears or less
