Question about Ultrex 2-in-1 (9qt) 8-Quart

I can't open my new Ultrex 2 Pressure cooker model 11302

I removed the pressure cooker from the box and I can't get it opened. There is no tape or screws. I have squeezed the handles, looked for any hidden reasons. I can't open it. I am used to the single handled cookers, you just turn and they open. There is some give to the lid when I try to open it but just a tiny bit. Help!

    You are brilliant, it worked. I submerged it in very warm water, it popped right open. Thank you so much.

It's almost certainly due to atmospheric pressure. Warm it slightly and it will open.

I had the same problem with an underwater dive torch. Left Johannesburg (1000 metres above sea level) and went to Mauritius (10 metres above sea level) and I couldn't open torch!

Should there be a manual for my newvrussell Hobbs pressure cooker - as I cannot even open it!


You don't give us the model number of the cooker. Here's a link to a new RH cooker, might be yours. http://www.russellhobbs.co.za/media/32069/rhep7_instruction_manualhttp://www.russellhobbs.co.za/media/32069/rhep7_instruction_manual_rh_electric_pressure_cooker_6l_amended_as___25.02.16.pdf

To open the lid correctly: Hold the handle of lid, turn it anticlockwise until the "DOWN ARROW" mark on the edge of the lid matches up with the "UP ARROW" mark on the edge of the housing cover. Now lift the lid to open. Note: For new pressure cookers, the seal of the lid may be slightly stronger than normal and may be slightly difficult to unlock. Once the lid has been opened and closed several times, it will loosen up.

I need a temperture control knob for rival crockpot


I have had good luck at our local appliance parts store. Take the old knob or the slow cooker in if you have a store close. Try looking for Appliances Household Parts in the yellow pages. If you have a metric/standard tape measure, remove the knob by pulling it off, if it will come off, then measure the shaft in mm and inches and look online. Also make sure to look at the shape of the shaft, sometimes they are half moon. Best of Luck

One of the handles on our S-9898 pressure cooker broke. Where can we get a replacement handle?


Here is a site that has parts for 106 different pressure cookers http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/pressurecookers/mirro?gclid=CP769LDwl7oCFWfhQgodvyIA4g
However, you will need the model number of the pressure cooker which might be on the bottom of the pan. The number you listed is the pressure regulator, not the pressure cooker.

I am looking for a replacement lid for Rival slow cooker SCE502


I believe the design of the handle on the SCE502 is poor and will fail over time. The nut in ours fell out of the handle, and we were holding the black plastic handle while the glass lid was falling to the floor. Ours failed this weekend, and luckily, when the lid fell, it did not break. After looking over the lid and the black handle, I purchased a 1/4-28 screw and a 1/4-28 nut (original was corroded). I drilled a hole completely through the handle and now the black handle is securely attached to the glass lid with a stainless steel screw and nut..

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.

Plastic handle Rival slow cooker model 38511 broken


The problem is the threads strip on the bolt and nut. I took these to Home Depot's specialty fastener section (the one with the drawers of stuff) and purchased a nylon bolt and nylon wing nut and solved the problem. I is easy to remove for cleaning and all is dishwasher safe.
