Status HV500 Home Vac Tips and Tricks

  1. Make a bag: Status HV500 Home Vac
Pull some film off the roll and cut to the length required by sliding the supplied cutter along the width of the roll film. Place one end of the film over the gold seal band at the front of the machine. DO NOT GO ON OR UP PAST THE FOAM SEAL. Make sure the film is laying flat across the seal band and lower the lid. Push the Seal button to start the Status HV500 Home Vac and then press down on the centre of the lid until you hear the note of the Status HV500 Home Vac change and the red light will brighten. This means that the lid is being held shut by vacuum pressure and the seal function has activated. The Status HV500 Home Vac will switch of when the seal is completed. To open the lid, wait till it stops and a few seconds later there is a quiet click which is the vacuum pressure releasing.

Please note: In cold conditions you may need to preheat the Status HV500 Home Vac prior to the first seal, to do this just run the machine through the seal cycle with no film in it.

  1. Vacuum Seal the bag: Status HV500 Home Vac

Place item you are vacuum sealing into the bag. It is best to spread out food items to give a nice flat finished product. This is more economical on space and will give an even freeze and defrost. Place the open end of the bag into the vacuum chamber of the Status HV500 Home Vac, which is BETWEEN THE 2 FOAM SEALS. Lower the lid and press the start/stop button. Press down onto the centre of the lid the same as when sealing the first end of the bag. The Status HV500 Home Vac will vacuum the bag, once the bag has started to vacuum you can stop pressing on the lid. Once the bag is vacuumed the Status HV500 Home Vac will switch to seal and complete the process. Wait for the red light to go out and the click before opening the Status HV500 Home Vac.

  1. Vacuum/Seal soft foods and liquid with the Status HV500 Home Vac:

For soft foods or foods with a high liquid content the Status HV500 Home Vac can be run in manual mode. To do this, once the open end of the bag is placed into the vacuum chamber, close the lid and lock the grey tabs, which are located on either side of the lid. Press the stop/start button and watch what is happening to the food. Once the food starts to crush or liquid is starting to move towards the Status HV500 Home Vac press the stop/start button again. The vacuum pump will instantly stop and the seal function will activate. Watch the red light, when it dims again the seal function is completed. To open the lid press down on either side of the lid front corners, to release the tabs.

Please Note: Sometimes the tabs will release themselves with the vacuum pressure, this depends on the vacuum created and the compression of the vacuum chamber seal. When the Status HV500 Home Vac is operated in this manner, there is sometimes not enough down force on the lid to make an effective seal. Always check the seal after doing a partial vacuum. If the seal does not look good, or if you are not sure, place the end of the bag back over the seal band and put a second seal above the first one. For foods with a high liquid content (such as seafood) always leave a gap of around 25 to 50mm to help to prevent liquid being sucked into the vacuum chamber and allow you to see if any liquid is moving toward the machine. Locking the lid shut is also a good way of holding the film in place for difficult food items, which need arranging in the bag once the open end of the bag is placed into the vacuum chamber. The Status HV500 Home Vac can also be allowed to run to full vacuum with the lid tabs locked down.




Troubleshooting: Status HV500 Home Vac

My Status HV500 Home Vac won’t switch from vacuum to seal, it just keeps running:

This is generally because the Status HV500 Home Vac has not achieved full vacuum. Here are some reasons why this happens:

Kinks in the film where it sits into the vacuum chamber, this will cause air leaks. Make sure the film is laying flat into the vacuum chamber.

An imperfect first seal on the base of the bag will cause an air leak. Check the seal. A good seal will look even and opaque, with none of the bag embossing showing in the seal area.

The bag may have been punctured by a sharp object, particularly if the bag is being re used

TO TEST THE Status HV500 Home Vac:
Run the vacuum seal function without any film. If the machine switches over from vacuum to seal (the red light brightens and the sound of the machine changes) then the machine is working perfectly and the fault is with the film or the operating procedure. Run this test with the lid locked shut.

Some of the bags that were vacuumed later lost their vacuum: Status HV500 Home Vac

This is caused by an air leak in the bag. Other brands of film can give variable results with the seal process. Check the function with Our film.

If liquid was sucked into the seal band area there is a high likelihood that the seal will leak. The liquid contaminates the seal and cools it. If this occurs place a second seal above the first seal as insurance. There may be a kink in the film across the seal area. This is a guaranteed leak. Make sure the film is sitting flat in the machine at all times.

Some food items hold a large amount of air inside them, which is slowly released in the vacuum. Whole sweet corn is a typical example. Take the corn off the cob prior to vacuuming. Soft foods like minced meat can also cause air pockets in the bag. Make sure things like mince are pushed into the corners of the bag or that a gap is left on the side of the bag for the air to pass. Fruit and vegetables give off Ethylene gas as they ripen. This will release the vacuum. You can vacuum fruit and vegetables but when the bag starts to release the vacuum it is time to open it.

The bag has been sealed but not fully vacuumed: Status HV500 Home Vac

Make sure the open end of the bag is inside the vacuum chamber. If you are working very quickly vacuum sealing multiple bags you may find that the residual heat that builds up in the seal band will start to seal the bag before the vacuum is completed. The machine has a duty cycle of 1 bag every 2 minutes. We find that we can exceed this without any problems, however if you experience the above problem let the machine sit for a couple of minutes with the lid open and try again. Sometimes this problem can occur more quickly with other brands of film, which are lighter in construction.
