Food Saver Model V3835 won't open for cleaning?
I was trying to seal a food bag and the vacuum wasn't working so I decided to clean the tray that collects moisture. However after pressing the 2 release buttons the food saver wouldn't open up for cleaning. I have been unable to find what is holding the unit closed. I removed the bottom cover and found the right hold down gear/"hold down" paw not engaged. I re-engaged the paw but still can't open the unit.
