20 Most Recent FoodSaver V3840 Vacuum Packaging System Questions & Answers

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.

I does sound like a controller issue. Try testing the charging output (be careful, who knows what the voltage may be coming out) I would say it is the battery but the yellow light thing has me thinking you are right. That thing has been sitting there maintaining the battery for 17 years, it is probably tired. The other bad news is if your battery has been sitting at that low volta.ge it may have a greatly reduced capacity now. Hope this helps some. .

Check that the motor and the beater are seated properly. If they are not square to each other then the belt may walk sideways.

May you explain more what happen? Did a cap get stuck in the hole? If so take a household vacuum and use the attachment tool to suck the cap out.
