First time user, steam valve on my xl power pressure cooker sits loosely in the sealed position. Wonder if it is broken. It doesn't turn easily to open. haven't started cooking yet. Can you help me?


the valve is a safety valve to release pressure that gets too high
the action is by the weight of the valve itself sitting over a small opening
as pressure is generated by resistance to flow, that small opening area has to have enough pressure ( psi /surface area) to overcome the resistance to flow ( the weight of the valve body)
when that happens there is a brief loss of pressure and then the valve reseats and the cycle begins again
simple ,effective and safe
to relieve the pressure before opening the lid , remove the valve

Why is steam and water coming out of the safety valve of the Russel Hobbs preasure cooker


When a pressure cooker is working normally, some steam and a little water is supposed to come out of the valve, that's how you know it's up to pressure.

Steam is escaping from floating valve


It is supposed to. If steam did not escape it would explode

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!

Just bought the 5 Qt electric pressure cooker. Tonight is the first time I'm using it. Got two questions.....is the pressure release valve supposed to be so loose? I'm also seeing steam and condensation...


Your gasket is no good and needs to be repaired. The water is supposed to be pressurized as high heat steam and when pressure is excessive the valve does its thing to lower to acceptable levels.

Replacement parts for the Wolfgang Puck pressure cookers are difficult to find and I just received an e-mail back from an earlier inquiry to the the company advising that parts are available here:

Not sure if your model is the BPCR0175 but if the part you require is not available on-line suggest you contact their Customer Service at 1-800-275-8273 or make an inquiry via their webform:

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.
