FoodSaver V3240: Lights flash,,,won't operate...what's wrong?

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.

SOURCE: foodsaver vacuum sealer tray full light

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.

Perhaps the bags you are using are not suitable. If they are too thin it will not vacuum air out.

Trying to vacuum and seal the broccoli after blanching, cooling and letting it drain. It won't seal the bags. It vacuums the liquid til the tray fills, then shuts off. I start over. How to fix this?


I usually freeze the bag before sealing that way the food is not dry when wanting to use it. pour as much water off as you can tho hope it works for U also I freeze many pounds of fresh fish that way also

The progress light on the food saver is flashing red


The heater bar is too hot. Allow it to cool for a while before resuming sealing.

Foodsaver V3840 Won't vacuum air out and wont go to seal. A label states the seals are not removable. Do you know how to fix?


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.

My Electrolux Rapido wet&dry won't start. The battery is empty and the blue light flashes when I plug in the charger.


this sounds totally silly but is the power button on the vacuum actually off? Had the same problem, where the battery was completely empty i didn't know my son had switched the vacuum on put it on charge and the light was flashing. I took it off the charging stand pressed the power button then put it back....now charging perfectly. Anyone who doesnt have this appliance will think you sound stupid but its just a clicky button so visually the button looks the same on or off.
