SOURCE: Leaks near handle, won't build up steam to pressure

I just got a Saeco Aroma that has this issue, so keep that in mind as it may not apply to your machine. 

Two things can cause this from what I can see: a defective brew head gasket (if the machine is very old the rubber can crack) it can crack) or a defective outlet valve.

In my case it was the latter: you need to remove the screen, then access the vallve body. On the Saeco, you simply unscrew it with a quarter. Inside is a stainless steel spring and a valve that would normally sit on the internal outlet tube. Mine was simply broken in three pieces. That makes it impossible to properly build pressure during warm up and, forces water up into the tank all the way to the top which them mixes with the steam during steaming.  

The outlet valve, spring and valve body  is a maintenance item that can be bought as a kit online for about $25. Or you can get the whole set of gaskets, o-rings, valve and spring for about $50 if like me you just got yourself a machine that simply needs its 5 year overhaul.

This outlet valve replacement is a 'one wrench' repair that can be easily done by any reasonably skilled handyman in less than 15 minutes. 

Good luck, hope it helps putting it back in service if you still have it ;)

SOURCE: Still very new Tedelex pressure

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 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:

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.

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

No.1 part, the round whistle in the middle of the lid doesn't pop up when the cooker is on and pressure is building up instead the steam comes out of small pressure ball and it sprays everywhere.


Here are detailed instructions on how to use it. It sounds like the slide on the handle was not set to the locking position:

The seal on pressure cooker #99700 leaks after pressure builds up and a dangerous amount of steam is expelled . we were almost scaled by the steam.


>>> Please leave feedback so I can continue helping You & Others
Hi,

make sure the pressure relief valve is working, not blocked etc, if it's OK try replacing the seal.

Thanks,

Adam.

Error code keeps flashing wont pressure up and they wont stand behind their product


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.
