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.

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:

I just received my pressure cooker and it keeps giving me an error message E4. why?


Generally, the E4 error code means that the sensor in the pc is faulty and needs to be replaced. Contact the place where you bought it immediately (if it's still under warranty) or contact the manufacturer to ask for a replacement.

Good Luck!

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.

Error code keeps flashing wont pressure up and they wont stand behind their product


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.

Presure weight plastic is off


You can remove the plastic cover from the vent valve and it will work fine. If you remove the plastic cap, you will need to manually tilt the valve with a utensil 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.

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.

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!
