Why is the Red Seal light is flashing on my FM200 appliance?

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. Wait for 20 min. for unit to cool off.
  • The Latch has been left in OPERATE position: Gaskets may be compressed. Unlatch and allow 10 to 20 minutes for Gaskets to expand.
  • Vacuum pump running more than 120 seconds. Under heavy usage, appliance will shut off automatically and Red Light will flash.

Why is my FM200 appliance not vacuuming the air out of the bag?

Possible causes of the machine not Vacuum Sealing:

Check for wrinkles in bag along Sealing Strip. To prevent wrinkles in the seal, gently stretch bag flat while inserting bag into Vacuum Channel.
  • Open unit and make sure Gaskets are inserted properly and there are no foreign objects, dirt or debris on the Upper or Lower Gasket
  • Latch has been left in OPERATE position: Gaskets may be compressed. Unlatch and allow 10 to 20 minutes for Gaskets to expand.
  • Make sure the accessory hose is not attached to accessory port.
  • Make sure the lid is latched down all the way. If the Latch does not catch the lid and bring it down, there will be a leak between the Gaskets.
