Question about Vacuums
E4 or E-4 error message in the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker means that the pressure cooker is not sealing properly.
This is usually caused by the pressure relief valve not properly seating. Usually you can get the relief valve to seat by putting a little pressure on the top of the valve and wiggling it around. This will rub off the layer of minerals that have built up on both the valve seat and the valve needle. If that doesn't work, pull the top of the valve out of the seat, and manually scrape off the buildup of the mineral buildup.
Not properly sealing can also be caused by a mis-alignment of the pressure cooker gasket seal. It sits in the lid part of the cooker. It can become a bit stretched. First note the location of the gaske, then take the gasket out and gently clean it. Put the gasket back in the lid and carefully put the lid back onto the pressure cooker. You can tell that it is properly seated if there is no gap between the lid and the pot. If there is a gap then the gasket is misaligned and so the lid is not seating properly.
Once you get the pressure release valve, and the gasket seal properly seated, unplug the pressure cooker to clear the E4 error message and try using the cooker again. Once the timer clock starts ticking down, there should be very little steam coming out of the cooker. Your pressure cooker should work fine now.

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
