If it's one of the newer ones that the lid turns to lock, try re-heating to pressure. Then when it gets to pressure, turn off the stove. Let it cool, when the pressure pin in the handle drops to let you know there is no pressure inside. Try and remove the lid. Sounds like the lid is vacuum locked.

    I have a brand new electrical pressure heater and I forgot to release pressure after cooking hours later when I remember lid was stuck! I heated unit back again until it reached pressurized level and turn off appliance and release pressure through safety valve and lid became unstuck so thank you for your advice

SOURCE: my new IMUSA pressure cooker won't open... HELP!!!!!!!

There is a little nob on top of the lid. It is a pressure release valve. Some how it stuck that is why the lid could not be opened. Try to turn it to release the pressure then return the cooker or exchange with a new one.
