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

I would like to purchase a 6-quart Cuisinart Electric Pressure cooker, but first I would like to know if I can also use it as a canner for my vegetables from the garden. Thank you.


Hi janutter...
Yes...You can use it to can your veggies, but it will only do a couple of jars at a time, and they cannot be over 500 ml. in size because the others will be too high.
I would recommend a larger pressure cooker or a canner to do your veggies from the garden depending how big your garden is and how much veggies you plan to can.
Please take time to rate me

Pressure cooker controls. what do the 3 symbols on top mean on the fagor pressure cooker


The circle with a slash through it means that you can remove the valve, the little cloud spraying means pressure release and the next symbol, or numbers, indicated pressure.

You can get a more detailed description in the manual for your pressure cooker, which you can find here:

I need a couple microtemp fuses 240 degrees C G4A00 for the wolfgang puck swivel waffle maker.


Radio Shack has a 228C and a 262C.

Google '240C thermal fuse' for online purchasing.

If you live near an urban area, try an appliance repair facility or electronics supply.

Somehow our Kenmore Elte Microwave Model 721.66469500 got locked. It says CHILD on the screen. Our manual says it should say "locked" I did what they said, push start and hold for at least...


In general, unlocking a microwave is usually one of the following:

1. Push and hold 'start' until it beeps or display changes
2. Push and hold 'clear/cancel' until it beeps or display changes
3. Push 'start' several times until it beeps or display changes
4. Push 'clear/cancel' several times until it beeps or display changes
5. Push and hold 'child/lock' until it beeps or display changes

If all these suggestions fail, try unplugging the oven for ten minutes and trying again.

I need a manual for a Bravetti pressure cooker PC107H. I have looked and looked.


The copy right from their website is outline, but you'll find hundreds of pressure cooker recipes on the website. Just browse thru the Recipe Section.

You'll also find individual food listings in the Cooking Time Charts. And don't forget about my new cookbook -- its the biggest pressure cooker cookbook ever! -- with tons of useful reference material and 400 more recipes just for pressure cookers.

Hope helps.

I purchased a Sears Counter Craft Crock Watcher crock pot at an Estate Sale, but there is no instruction booklet. It has low, high, and auto shift on the dial. Can you help provide some instructions for...


From a couple of different slow cooker manuals - most I looked at are the same:

When in the AUTO setting, the slow cooker will begin cooking on HIGH and then will shift to LOW after approximately 2 hours of cooking time. AUTO setting does not turn off the unit. Other favorite recipes may be adapted to the slow cooker. All times listed in the following chart are approximate and should serve only as cooking guidelines.

Regular Cooking Slow Cooker Cooking Times

1 (Low) 2 (High) AUTO

30 minutes 6-8 hrs. 3-4 hrs. 5-7 hrs.

35-60 minutes 8-10 hrs. 5-6 hrs. 6-8 hrs.
1-3 hours 10-12 hrs. 7-8 hrs. 8-10 hrs.
