SOURCE: E4 on the Woldgang Puck Electric Pressure Cooker

I fixed mine by elevating it 4 inches (E4) and dropping it on the counter. Something needed a little impact adjustment!

I have a programmable pressure cooker with no instruction manual. The model number is EPC460. It was made in China and just says Perfect Programmable Pressure Cooker. Can you help me find a user manual for this. I can't find anything online or by googling it.

Thank you

SOURCE: E4 error on pressure cooker,

Hi, the problem is a Signal Switch Malfunction. It has to do with the power switch and the pressure switch from what I have been able to find out. You will probably have to change the switch.
Another way to get rid of the code temporarily is to open the machine. Let it cool off by washing the lid and pulling the pan inster out of the base and let that cool as well. Then unplug the machine and basically start all over. The error will go away after some time.

Make sure the inner container is dry... plug he unit off then on again.

Eventually, the "E4" display would appear. I determined the steam vent valve (loose piece) was not seated on the vent hole in the cover so the pressure never built up. I removed the loose piece which consists of a metal cylinder and a black plastic cover with a handle.

SOURCE: 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.

My Deni electric pressure cooker is showing E4? Cannot cook?


An E4 Error for your Deni means that there is a signal switch error. Turn off the pressure cooker, un-plug, and wait for it to cool. Then, try again. If it continues to give you the E4 error I would recommend contacting the manufacturer - but, unfortunately, Deni has gone out of out business.

Here is the manual for your pressure coker, if you don't already have it:

Well, it depends on the model, I looked the digital pressure cooker manual (found here http://www.hippressurecooking.com/category/manuals/cooks-essentials/) E4 is a Signal Switch Malfunction. The recommend turning off and un-plugging the pressure cooker and letting it cool of completely before trying to use it again.

When I try to set the time on my electric wolfgang puck pressure cooker, I get an "E4" and a beep. What is the problem?


I actually have one I use all the time at home. We LOVE it but this seems to a common issue.
the problem is a Signal Switch Malfunction. It has to do with the power switch and the pressure switch from what I have been able to find out. Mine doesn't have a pressure problem it just goes to E4 once you set the time. I gave the switch a good smack and it has been working for a while. This is the second time and this worked both times now. I am sure the switch will have to be replaced at some time.
I have come across this error when I am cooking rice and then trying to pressure cook something else immediately after. I have found that If I release the pressure valve and manually let the steam release, then my chances of getting the getting the E4 errror are less, but it recommends not to do that. :( Another way I have gotten rid of the code was to open the machine. Let it cool off by washing the lid and pulling the pan inster out of the base and let that cool as well. Then I will unplug the machine and basically start all over. The error will go away after some time either way, it's just unfortunate that it can't go from meal to meal when you have several different dishes you need to make. Don't THROW away your machine with an E4 error, just give it time to reset

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.
