If you're following the instruction manual but it won't heat, and it's within the 30 day return period, I'd take it back to the dealer for a replacement.

If it's past 30 days, but within the warranty period, you'd have to contact the manufacturer via the owner's manual to get it repaired.

Fissler Pressure cooker has steam coming out from the Utimax valve, is this normal?


Hi. Some steam is ok. But when it is running it should be sealed up. The little rocker should be doing it's thing too. Good luck.

All the controls work and seems to be working with tray rotating but makes noise and does not cook


Having noise means some obstruction near the rotating tray or its motor need some lubricant. Has for no cook but control seems working, the magnetron and its fuses is the culprit because it doesn't anymore produce heat to cook food.
I hope that advice help you.

Cook's Essential pressure cooker missing the pressure relief knob the one that bobs with cooking. How does one ID the manufacture?


Was able to find an on-line Instruction Manual for the Cook's Essentials EPC460 and EPC450 pressure cookers:

http://www.qvc.com/cd/pdf/K14957_Manual.pdf

On the last page the distributor is identified as Tristar Products:

http://www.tristarproductsinc.com/customer/cs.html

Tristar is now distributing the Montel Williams Pressure Cooker and is no longer listing the Cook's Essentials products.

Suggest you try the Customer Service of Tristar by contacting them directly to see if the can advise on a parts supplier.

Second choice would be to see if a part supplied for similar product might be a substitute. Several brands have parts available through this supplier:

You could also try making an inquiry through this supplier to see if they can locate the part or recommend a substitute.

Does not cook even . put 2 items in cooker one well done other one half,


were both items the same density? Was one maybe thawed more that the other? A microwave cooks by rapidly heating the water molecules within the product that you are heating. If you heat two of the same product, it should cook them both evenly, however say you put in a frozen hamburger and a thawed hamburger, the frozen one will only begin to defrost while the thawed one will actually cook

Daewoo microwave that won't cook


More than likely a door switch inside the unit is misalligned or faulty. Crack it open and check for proper allignment and good open/closed circuits with a VOM.
