The valve should be seat to sealing. When the cooker is coming up to pressure it is normal for the steam to push oxygen out of the valve. Then, once it has reached pressure and the cooker starts to count down the cooking time the steam will stop coming out.

I bought this pressure cooker and there was no manual in the box


Pressure cookers these days are pretty much foolproof. You generally use a small amount of water in the cooker, put in the food to be cooked, attach the lid firmly, turn up the heat until steam escapes the pressure valve, reduce heat so a small amount escapes, cook until done. Cooking time is greatly reduced in a pressure cooker because the vapor pressure above the water makes the water boil at a temperature higher than the usual 212 degrees Fahrenheit .
You can do an internet search for pressure cookers in general, or yours in particular. You didn't mention if yours is stove top or plug-in. You should search for the type yours is.

How often do I need to change the rubber gasket on my pressure cooker?


That really depends on how often you use your pressure cooker and what kind of foods you cook in it. You might start to notice steam escaping between the lid and the pan after a while. You can try stretching the rubber and making sure it's sealed properly and cleaning the valve etc. If after you've done all that it still is leaking steam, it's a sign you probably need a new rubber gasket.

Why is there steam pouring out of my pressure cooker when I start to cook a piece of meat? Is that a sign that something is wrong?


Don't worry - it's a sign that your pressure cooker is doing what it's supposed to do. When you first start cooking the pressure is too low to activate the red center which is the overpressure valve. The steam coming out is just a way of getting rid of any cold air that's inside the pressure cooker. If the steam continues to escape later on in the cooking process then you need to check that your overpressure valve is clean and that the red center button is in the correct place.

Steam is coming out from the floating lock pin but the timer is counting down. should steam be escaping while cooking under pressure?


Yes, otherwise the cooker would blow up from the pressure. This was a common problem with pressure cookers used on a stove from many years ago. Hope this helps!

Why doesn't my cover fit tightly? 5.5 Qt Rival Crock Pot - lid does not fit tightly and hot water is bubbling and spitting out of the crock pot making a mess and an unsafe situtation...help! Is this a...


There's nothing you need to do differently except place the cooker where a little splashing won't hurt anything. This is typical of all crock pots. The cover fits loosely because it must allow steam to escape. When water turns to steam, it expands. If not allowed to escape, the steam pressure would explode the vessel. The simplest and cheapest way to let the steam escape is to let the lid lift freely. Some of the steam re-condenses into water as it escapes, and then it sputters and splashes as more steam comes out. They could make a more complex system to control the mess, but then a crock pot would be bigger, more expensive, and harder to wash. I know this might not be the answer you hoped for, but it's a truthful answer to your question so I hope you'll rate it accordingly.
