Vacuseal vacuum issues

I have a 'new' used vacuseal 4468, it is not drawing a vacuum through the manifolds in the bladder.

Im in need of advice and or a diagram of the internal vacuum lines.

There are 2 vacuum lines coming out of the press, one on the rear right, the line was pulled out, and another line coming out of the middle back, there is also a vacuum line fitting on the rear left.

I have tried attaching the pump to all three lines, yet the manifolds in the bladder are not sucking air. The pump works fine.

Desperately need advice and or drawing of the vacuum lines and how to access them. I have the manual but there are no diagrams of the vacuum lines.

Thanks in advance for any help.

How do you know that it isn't the pump that is not working?

Here's a link with a few pics that I found of someone working on a press.
The press is upside down in the pics so that the underside is on the top.
They show the hose connections.
We have a press like that at work as well as a Drytac press.

Clic on the photo and it will enlarge and then you can clic on the arrows to scroll thru the other pics.

The line with the red arrow is the one that goes to the pump.
Keep in mind that this press is upside down so all positions are reversed.;)

Thank you for all the help. I got all the hoses set up properly and it is now pulling a vacuum.
