No these are airflow holes and gas can not leak from them because they are not connected to the stoves gas line in any way!
The gas does not come out these holes! the air goes in these holes! from the draw of the gas!

The company had a major recall and went out of business. No manuals appear to be available on the web.
Here are some general instructions you can use:
1 Set up your cooker. Place your Ultrex Pressure Cooker on the stove. Remove the lid and pour in no more than 2 inches of water. Depending on what you are cooking the amount of water will vary. More water will ultimately cook larger amounts of food, but you will need to refer to your specific model's instructions on this matter.
2 Put in the food you wish to cook. Close and lock the lid firm to the pot. Make sure it is locked securely so none of contents boil out of the top.
3 Turn on your burner to high heat for approximately ten minutes. Allow the water to boil.
4 Turn the stove down to a low setting after the water is boiling in the cooker. Flip the pressure valve closed and allow your food to simmer.
Set the pressure valve to ten pounds. For vegetables, cook 30 to 45 minutes. For meats, cook 45 to 60 minutes.5
6 Open the pressure valve and allow the pressure to discharge. Unlock and remove the lid to find your fully cooked meal.
Here is a piece from someone who had the same E4 error problem:
I had this problem. I noticed that steam was coming out almost immediately and the cooker would not start counting down. Eventually, the "E4" display would appear. I determined the steam vent valve (loose piece) was not seated on the vent hole in the cover so the pressure never built up. I removed the loose piece which consists of a metal cylinder and a black plastic cover with a handle. The plastic cover was so far down on the metal piece that it would not allow the metal cylinder to seat on the vent. You can use the metal piece by itself or work the plastic cap up far enough so that the metal piece seats on the vent in the closed position. I have had no more problems - it works fine.
Yes, it's not unusual for the outside to be too hot to touch. A slow cooker won't get as hot as a bare burner on the stove, but it still gets hot enough to cook meat. The outside has a bit of insulation, but it still may get hot enough to cause pain, melt a bread bag, etc. Be sure and place it where no one will accidentally touch it.
Lydia, there are notches on the side of the metal liner. Line 1 is for one scoop of rice filled with water to the line marked 1. The scooper that comes with it holds 2/3 cup of rice. There are smaller notches above and below each numbered notch. That's to make rice looser or stickier, depending on your preference.
Hope that helps.
Most lids on crocks are loose fit due to pressure release that is required in most receipts... read your receipt for example BEAN SOUPS, or LENTILS and you will find that the should be tilted for proper cooking.
Cooking time in a crock is different from stove top or oven cooking... Remember the saying that "Heat cooks and fire burns" ... well, never is this more true than with your new slow cooker. So here are a few examples for you to try:
FIRST RECEIPT: take out some fresh or frozen meat your choice' dice up and onion or simply just cut the onion in 1/2 for easy removal later. I tend to season/salt>>> my pork, lamb , and chicken; however I do season/salt beef if I am only cooking it in water>>> for like tender shredded beef tacos. Anyway set your crock on high in the morning or at night before going to bed
( warning do not leave your crock unattended if you have children under 12 years of age around that might try to serve themselves when the crock is cooking)and don't except to have the children not want to investigate you savory dish>> they might and will get 2nd degree burns from a 215 degree cooking temp.
Try a 7 or 15 Bean Soup add your smoked turkey or pork ham to the pot with seasoning/salt and an onion. set on high and go to work . When you cook home you and or your family will be delighted to find a wonderful home cooked meal waiting for your taste buds to enjoy!!!
