  • The vacuum level must be set to the maximum or use liquid control. The sealing time must be set to the minimum and soft air switched off.
  • Close the lid to start the operation. Check if the jars are completely closed after the cycle is completed. Metal lids can be checked by the pit and the sound of it. Not all metal lids are suitable for vacuum sealing. There must be material in the rim to be able to hermetically seal the jar.
