Question about Tilia FoodSaver V2240

Open Question

I am looking for the user manual for foodsaver 2440

My foodsaver is an older model I brought several years ago and I saw that I could purchase accessories to use on mason jars so I brought wide-mouth jar sealer and regular-mouth jar sealer. However, I do not have instruction on how to use it and no instruction manual. I am also wondering when do I know that the mason jar is sealed?

This is likely happening because the unit cannot detect that a vacuum has formed, and because of this, the unit will not seal the bags, with the gaskets around the vacuum channel being the probable culprit. The Foodsaver gaskets will deform and/or dry out with time, just like in any device, but you don't necessarily have to replace them. I've tried this inexpensive solution on my own Foodsaver V2490, and it works perfectly.
Buy some food-grade silicone grease and apply it to both the upper and lower gaskets. I remove the gaskets and coat both sides with a thin layer of grease before replacing them in their respective channels. And since this grease will be absorbed and/or dry out with time, you will have to do this occasionally, so I also flip the gaskets (i.e. turn them over) whenever I apply the grease.
You can buy a 2 oz container of silicone grease at any dive store, or you can buy it over the Internet by searching for "Trident silicone grease".
This is a link where you can buy it for around $7.00:

I do not work at this dive center, but I am a scuba diver and already had some grease that I use for the numerous rubber gaskets in my gear. The 2 oz. jar will last you several years, and you will find many other uses for it around the house since the grease will last longer than a spray.

This is likely happening because the unit cannot detect that a vacuum has formed, and as a result, the unit never "turns on" the heating element to seal the bag, with the gaskets around the vacuum channel being the probable culprit. The Foodsaver gaskets will deform and/or dry out with time, just like in any device, but you don't necessarily have to replace them.

This is typically a bad seal and the vacuum cant build enough pressure. You can usually dampen the black rubber seal with a sponge and water before you use the machine. this solves the problem most of the time

I purchased a riccar 2150L second hand with no information. I have a 10yr old riccar supralite and love it! But the 2150L looks older. I am curious what the age of riccar 2150L vacuum is.


Your m
2150 L is likely 25 to 30 years old. The first Riccar vacuums were made in Japan. Your was likely made in Taiwan. Production of most models was brought to St. James, MO 20 years ago. Filters, bags and some parts are still available from your local Riccar dealer, or from ThatVacGuy.com

My V3820 foodsaver stop/seal light is constantly blinking?


Thanks, Lee Eismann. This was very helpful. I was about to purchase marine silicone as you suggested (washing and drying the sealing gaskets did not solve the problem for this time, which it did several months ago when this problem occurred) when I realized I had can a spray silicone that I keep like WD-40 to lubricate moving parts when they squeak. I sprayed this on both sides of both gaskets as well as the sealing roller and it immediately solved the problem. This tip should be in the owner's manual as it's clearly a very common problem.
