Question about Hitachi RD5086P 8.3-Cup Rice Cooker
My Hitachi rd5081 8.3 rice cooker was working well, but now when you press down on button to cook it stays down with light on like its cooking but its only warming water. Can anyone please help with this problem.
Thanks in advance.

The preassure switch may be not working right.
It may be corroded, etc.
Unplug the unit and push it back several times, try to see if the spring is working, etc.

the heating element could be distorted or warped, therefore the contact of the switch to the bottom of the rice bowl is incomplete. Hope this helps.

I don't know if this helps Francis, but i have found that my rice cooker tends to do this when I plug it before I the rice water and bowl in the unit. you can try geting everything in place and then plugging it, then setting it to cook. Good Luck.
