High-pressure cooker exploded

My high pressure cooker exploded as the rubber seal wasn't placed properly, after that, I realised that lid shape had changed a little bit, can that be repaired or is it still usable?

Most of the time NO but i would try setting it in place and locking down the lid and do nothing for a day or so , do not heat it ,just leave it . after a day remove the lid and see if the gasket looks normal if not REPLACE IT ......... what do you have to loose , just a little time , but just so you know those gaskets dont last forever , your should get one if you can ,just to have in case

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.

I can't get my 17quart pressure cooker to seal. I was looking for an online manuel so i could find out why.


Take the rubber ring out of the lid.
Wash it with warm soapy water.
Dry it.
Oil it with vegetable oil.
Now do you see how the rubber ring has a groove around it on the inside? Push your thumb into the groove and work it around the ring, you're trying to spread the rubber V out.

Put it back in the lid and take it for a test run.

In the future store your cooker with the lid upside down on top, keeping it closed will ruin the seal.

If it still won't seal replace the rubber parts, you can get a kit for your cooker from presto.

The rubber seal on the inside of the lid always becomes loose and doesn't allow the cooker to come up to pressure. I always check it and make sure that it seems to be fitted properly, and when I actually...

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.
