Tips for Troubleshooting
1 If your machine will not turn on, ensure the machine is properly plugged into a grounded
outlet. Check the power cord for tears or frays.
2 If you are not achieving a complete vacuum:
• Ensure the open end of the bag is across the gasket and within the vacuum chamber.
• Also, the bag must be laid flat across the seal bar. Wrinkles and bulges may result in an
insufficient seal.
• Inspect the seal. A successful seal will look clear. If the seal is spotty, incomplete, wrinkled,
white or milky, cut the seal and restart the sealing process.
• For best results, use VACMASTER® bags, rolls and accessories.
3 If the vacuum is lost after sealing, check for small puncture holes in the bag, then cover any
sharp edges with a VACMASTER® Bone Guard Sheet, and vacuum package in a new bag.
4 If your canister will not properly vacuum:
•
•
•
•
Ensure that the accessory hose is inserted into the lid.
Ensure that the canister lid is set to the “Vacuum” setting.
Check the canister for cracks or damage.
Always leave at least 1 inch of head space between the contents and the rim of the canister.
Tips for Successful Vacuum Packaging
1
2
Read this manual carefully before using your PRO110 for the first time.
3
Use only VACMASTER® vacuum bags, rolls, accessories, and attachments.
4
Do not use the PRO110 on a wet or hot surface or near a heat source.
5
Do not immerse machine or power cord in any liquid.
6
Use only grounded power sources. Do not use with an extension cord.
7
Do not operate appliance with a damaged cord.
8
The PRO110 should only be used for its intended purposes.
9
Unplug machine before cleaning your PRO110. Use a clean damp cloth and mild soap.
Vacuum packaging is not a substitute for canning. Any perishable foods that
require refrigeration or freezing must still be refrigerated or frozen after packaging.
10 Never vacuum package garlic or fungi, such as mushrooms. A dangerous chemical reaction
takes place when the air is removed.
11 Some fruits and vegetables may release gases (out-gases). The vacuum may be lost when
packaging these fruits and vegetables. Blanching or freezing before vacuum packaging
helps prevent this.
12 Delicate foods can be frozen prior to packaging to help them hold their shape.
13 If packaging fresh meats without pre-freezing, place a folded paper towel between
the meat and the top of the bag to help absorb the moisture.
14 To vacuum liquids, pre-freeze in a dish or an ice cube tray.
15 A VACMASTER® Bone Guard Sheet can be used to cover sharp edges to
prevent bag punctures.
16 VACMASTER® vacuum bags are boilable, freezable and microwavable.
17 Only use canisters designed for vacuum packaging. Other containers may implode
under pressure.
18 Allow foods and liquids to cool prior to vacuum packaging.
19 Hand wash canister lids. Do not put in dishwasher. The canister itself is dishwasher safe.
