    Not even Wolfgang Puck knows what the E4 message means. I guess this is a disposable cooker.

Before using the pressure cooker make sure the bottom of the container is dry.. I got this error then i just wiped of the bottom of the inner container.. turned off the pressure cooker then turned it on again.. it worked fine after that.. no more error.

What does E 4 on display panel mean?????


Hi Noreen,
The "e4" is an error code. You need to search online for "error code e4 + your make". You should then, at least, know what the problem is.

Se e4 on my cooker what do i do


The problem is a Signal Switch Malfunction. It has to do with the power switch and the pressure switch from what I have been able to find out. Mine doesn't have a pressure problem it just goes to E4 once you set the time. I gave the switch a good smack and it has been working for a while. This is the second time and this worked both times now. I am sure the switch will have to be replaced at some time. From what I have seen this is a very common problem. There is one way to fix this problem, albeit not the best. I was able to bypass the E4 error by completely bypassing the electronics and wiring the heater coil to get power whenever the pressure cooker is plugged in. It was a very simple job, anyone with any electrical experience can do this. The only problem is that it is a safety concern as there is no way for the heater to turn off even if pressure is getting to be way too high. There may be a pressure relief valve in the lid but the heater coil won't shut off, so don't leave it unattended! But at least this way to you can still pressure cook.

Displays E2 and E4 (5 qt Wolfgang Puck pressure cooker - silver) what section is problem mechanical or electronic?


I think E2 means open circuit in thermocouple in center of bottom. E4 means no contact on pressure sensing switch at edge of bottom. Mine had E4 error. Took out switch and used fine sandpaper to clean contact points. Now it works fine.
Remove 3 screws in bottom. Remove bottom cover by turning it ~1/4" to clear tabs. Remove switch at edge of bottom with two blue wires going to it. Clean contacts and replace.

Displays e4 wont work


Removed the 3 screws on the bottom. There is a relay near the circuit board. Kind of looks like an old morse code relay. Just tapped out "E 4" in morse code. Plugged it in and it works fine.

Error code keeps flashing wont pressure up and they wont stand behind their product


The vent valve is not seated on the vent and pressure won't build up. Either remove the plastic cover from the vent valve or slide it up enough so that the valve seals on the vent. If you remove the plastic cap, you will need to manually tilt the valve to "quick-vent" the cooker. Watch out for steam burns! Should work fine after that. You need to unplug the cooker and re-plug it to reset the "E4" error message.

Presure weight plastic is off


You can remove the plastic cover from the vent valve and it will work fine. If you remove the plastic cap, you will need to manually tilt the valve with a utensil to "quick-vent" the cooker. Watch out for steam burns! Should work fine after that. You need to unplug the cooker and re-plug it to reset the "E4" error message.

My Wolfgang Puck pressure cooker shows 'E4' in the display.


There doesn't seem to be any legit way of fixing this. I tinkered with the pressure sensors and valves, kicked the pressure cooker a few times, still the E4 error presented itself.

E4 on the Woldgang Puck Electric Pressure Cooker


I fixed mine by elevating it 4 inches (E4) and dropping it on the counter. Something needed a little impact adjustment!
