Cooks 8 qt pressure cooker Model V22-(8).00 I dropped the lid on the floor under the lid on the handle is a small part that locks on to the pot, it broke off. Top of lid states Safety Valve

Added 24 Feb 2018 -

Apparently the Cooks kitchen appliances are sold (new) exclusively by J. C. Penney. I still have not found a replacement lid for your pressure cooker. I suggest you call J. C. Penney Customer Service: 800-322-1189. Ask about the availability of a replacement lid for your pressure cooker.

Hello -

So you need to find and purchase a replacement lid for your pressure cooker. That pressure valve which broke off the lid is VERY IMPORTANT.

Do you perhaps mean it is a Cook's Essentials pressure cooker? Cook's Essentials cookware (new) is sold exclusively by QVC.

First, check the user manual for your pressure cooker. It may contain a phone number or web address for replacement parts or service.

If you have no manual or there is no information on a source for replacement parts or repair service, and if I am correct in thinking yours is a Cook's Essentials pressure cooker, then, I recommend you contact QVC Customer Service and ask about the availability of a replacement lid for your pressure cooker. This is the link to QVC Customer Service:

Best wishes.

I need recommendations on where to get a replacement pressure valve for my Todd English pressure cooker. Seems like a design flaw, there is no way to keep from it falling out.

the pressure valve is just a height sitting on a hole and when the pressure in the cooker reaches such a pressure that it can dislodge the weight , it blows off the pressure and so the pot will not explode
of course if you tip the lid upside down , it will fall off as that is what it is supposed to do

Undo the two nuts and washer assembly holding the seat and lid onto the cistern. Lift off and lay down lid side down with back of lid facing you. Undo small screws in the chrome hinge arm brackets. They will the slide off. You can now see the two soft closure cylinders. One is for the seat and one for the lid. Usually lid has black tab and seat has white tab. The whole unit slides in and out, but you must push the little clip tab up, between the two locating lugs with a very small blade screwdriver and at the same time grip with pliers or molegrips and draw it out. There are no serviceable parts as far as I am aware. It is a sealed unit. The usual problem is the lid/ seat being forced down and internal pressure cracking the barrel of the cyclinder. Replace the unit and reassemble in reverse.

Washing machine stops on rinse on all cycles

this could be a timer problem, or the cold water may be shut off.....if it is advancing to the rinse point but not filling, then there may be a problem with the fill valve also. You may want to check the lid switch too, just to be sure it is making contact.From what you are describing it sounds like the problem with your washer could either be the lid switch or no cold water. However there are a number of other possibilities. I would recommend checking the lid switch first. Open the lid & you should see the lid switch actuator mounted on the lid. This is the probe that pushes in on the lid switch as you close the washer lid. Next you can check the lid switch. The lid switch is hidden under the top of the washer. You will see a small opening where the plunger comes down at & activates the lid switch. You should hear the switch click as the lid is being closed. You can also use a small non-metallic probe to push in on the lid switch. If the lid switch is not responding, you will need to replace the lid switch.Next you will need to check & make sure the cold water is turned on. You may want to turn the water off & take the cold water fill hose off of the back of the washer. Use a bucket & turn the water back on to check the incoming water pressure. If the water pressure checks good & the washer is not filling for rinse, you will need to replace the water valve.If you have good cold water supply & the lid switch checks okay you will need to access the inside of the machine to make more checks. Be sure to disconnect electrical power before attempting any repairs. Please resubmit your question if you need further assistance.Good Luck

Washer will not drain or spin

The two things that cause this are the lid switch and the pressure switch. If the lid switch does not make it thinks the lid is open and it will not spin for safety reasons. If the pressure switch or line from the tub to the switch located inside the control panel, is either plugged or not working it does not know there is water in the machine to spin or drain. You can take the tube off the switch and blow through it to clear it and see if that is the issue but I would concentrate on the lid switch first. Sometimes these get bent and you can test them using a small screwdriver or pen to press on the switch to see if it clicks and starts spinning. These are also cheap and easy to replace. You also have the possiblity that your control board is out but we won't go there yet till you test the lid switch and the pressure switch.

Lid at printing end does not seem to fit rite....must press down on right side to restore printing. As long as you retain the pressure, it continues printing.

Do you mean that you need to retain the pressure to have good print quality on the right side or you need the pressure to keep the amber status light from showing ?

There is a small optic sensor that functions to indicate if the lid is open or not. The printer will not print as long as it thinks the lid is open. If the lid won't snap down tight enough you can fool the printer by placing a small piece of label or something opaque over the sensor to make it think the lid is closed. The sensor is located on the right side just behind the green adjusting wheel used to adjust the label width guides.

Hope that helps...

I changed the lid switch because it was broke and now the water wont stop filling in the washer. It has to be shut of manually or it would over flow. I wondering if I hit or disconnected somethin when I...

You could have very easily disconnected something while repairing your lid switch. The most common cause of a washer that will not stop filling is a disconnected air hose on the pressure switch. The pressure switch is located inside the operator console behind the load level selector knob. There is a small plastic air hose attached to it that senses pressure from the wash tub as the water rises. This difference in pressure is what determines when the pressure switch shuts off. Without the air hose attached, the pressure switch will not shut off. The following link explains:

Since you had to remove your operator console while replacing the lid switch, I would begin there. Read through the link provided and let me know if you have nay questions. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Washer fills with water, then nothing happens.

This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

A replacement lid switch can be purchased on line at, or All three sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all three for the best price. If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know. If my diagnosis is not correct, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can assist you further.
