Steam is escaping


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.

Steam release doesn't work


When the cooker is reaching pressure, the valve should point to the dot, and after pressure cooking, you turn the valve towards release. The valve will feel quite loose, but it if it's in the wrong position when the cooker is reaching pressure then the cooker cannot build, and consequently will not release, pressure.

Here is the manual if you need more information on how to operate the cooker:

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.

Still very new Tedelex pressure cooker: the red-headed pop-up valve seems to take for ever before "popping" and allowing steam pressure to build up. How long should I wait? Thanks, Nic


My pressure cooker does that too, you would have to wait until the steam starts to come out a lot, then it will pop out and start building up pressure. Hope this helps.

Steam release valve is not very tight....very loose. how do you install it?


I posted the same question, as I was very nervous about the loose fitting steam release valve. I thought for sure it was defective. I have never used a pressure cooker before and I think most people are nervous the first time. I finally called customer service and was told this is how it is supposed to be. It's supposed to be loose, and the lid won't fit tightly. Everything works out fine when you start the cooker. The valve tightens up and the lid fits securely. Keep in mind also that it takes quite some time for the cook cycle to begin. When it took so long to start the actual cooking, I thought yes, I was right, this one is defective. But I cooked a perfect turkey breast and am continuing on to make turkey soup. I hope I have helped, as there doesn't seem to be anybody who wants to share their knowledge with us newbies!

When installing steam release valve on 7 qt pressure cooker it is not tight but very loose


Thats the way it is supposed to be. if it was too tight, it would not automatically release when necessary.

Steam coming out of floating valve on handle.


No. if the steam is coming out, 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.

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.


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.
