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!

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.

Hi Jerry,
The ladies are right.

The appliance is called a steam table, and it operates on the same principle as a double-boiler. The design uses water as a thermal buffer between the heating element and the food, and ensures that the food is kept at food-safe serving temperature (varies by food, but typically over 140F, sometimes over 170F) but won't let the food get hotter than 212F so it doesn't burn or overcook the food.

If it's splattering boiling water, then it's overfilled and you should reduce the amount of water, but only by a little bit. A steam table should NEVER be allowed to run completely dry.


As for the steam getting you when you take out a pan -- that's true, and you do have to be very careful when you remove pans from a steam table.

Presure weight plastic is off


You can remove the plastic cover from the vent valve and it will work fine. If you remove the plastic cap, you will need to manually tilt the valve with a utensil 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.

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.

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.

Crock pot use


You should keep the lid on as much as possible. You are correct; once you open the lid, the liquid inside can quickly lose temperature at a rate of 10-15 degrees per minute.

Additionally, taking the top off allows steam to escape, which reduces the point of cooking in a slow cooker (cooking in a relatively closed system, with the steam condensing back to water and flowing back into the broth).

It's not doing a whole lot to the flavor (aside from causing the stew to thicken with the loss of water), but it is definitely causing the cooking to take longer than it should.
