I have a Food Saver V4400 series vacuum sealer. I need an unusual repair. The sealer works great and it still seals very well. The problem is, I cannot open the pull out drip tray, it's closed tight and I cannot get it open. It is no longer under warranty so I cannot send it back to FoodSaver.
Try WD-40 and use the red tube. Practice first so you know how it works. Then put the tube with can right into the tray spaces that need to be loosened and spray quickly down the edge fast because so much spray comes out an once
This is taken directly from FoodSaver on how to open the door that is stuck. You can try this one and see if it works for you. Quote - Turn Foodsaver unit on and press the cancel button. That should release the unit for cleaning.

I just bought a Foodsaver 5200 and the vacuum part isn't the greatest. I've had one thing out of about 15 bags seal where the contents do not move around and have air in it.Please help.
If you just bought it, I would take it back to the store and exchange it.
If this is new then take it back to the store that you bought it, if they give you any trouble then get in touch with the manufacture giving the model number and description.

If you're still experiencing problems, I would take the machine back for either an exchange, or refund.
Definitely take it back for one that works. I just did that with a mixer that would not go past speed one. Sometimes they are just faulty and it's not you.
If your Foodsaver is new then you should return it just in case it is a "lemon".
I am looking for parts and repair help for my Food Saver Professional II?

Hello. Do you still have the gasket for the FoodSaver II?
When we set up and turn on the machine it does not suck the air out of the bag. It sounds like it is sucking, but bag is not deflating.

Does your food saver have the ability to vacuum seal jars? If so make sure the lever is turned to the bag position if it has one.
Will seal but not suck air out
Food saver not sucking air out of the bags
I have a Foodsaver Professional II manufactured by Tilia, Inc. As you all know they always break after the 1 year warranty and when you call them there are no parts, or service, the rec told me to throw it away. Why not it only cost $254.00 dollars? I am trying to buy a another one to use for parts. So if you have one or know where I can get one please contact me through this site. Thanks.

I need the electrical schematics for my Foodsaver Professional II. It worked great for 15 years and all of a sudden I've got 3 blinking LEDS and it doesn't work.
I thank all of you for any help you can give me.

This might be the life time expectancy for this item. Try checking for the availability on ebay and you might find a date to go by in the info, contact the manufacturer.
I can not get the tray light to go out. I cleaned both the upper and lower tray. The light still will not go out.
