Have you tried pushing your lid down to make sure catch doesn't hang-up before pushing back on the button and pulling it upward?

If that doesn't work it maybe damaged (melted by steam, overuse or gunked up with heavy mineral deposits) but to be honest we don't ever open ours. We fill from the pour spout just fine with the lid always closed. You can pour in your descaler the same way.

Hope this helps a little...

My pressure cooker is locked shut. It is cool but will not rotate to open. It seems a little pin comes out and stops the rotation. any ideas?

Most have a pressure lock feature. The pin ususally pops up and locks the lid when there is pressure inside. sometime when cooking thick liquids the pin can be stuck in the up position. Just push it down slide the lock back and open the lid..Sometime running water over the top will budge it.

Cushion lid release button sticks and the lid does not close

Over time the heat can causes the plastic parts to swell until the button that releases the lid gets stuck. The button can be easily & carefully pried completely out of the hole with a knife **note the orientation of the button and spring for replacement. Clean the button & hole but expect the button to still stick when re-inserted back into the kettle. Take the button back out and if you take a knife and gently carve/scrape away some of the plastic round the inside of the rim of the 'hole' and around the edge of the plastic button, you can remove enough of the plastic so that the button now moves easily back and forth in the hole releasing the lid. Good luck.

I pulled the paper jam out, now printer will not print

Switch the printer off, remove the back cover, now you will see rubber rollers, try turning them slowly either upwards or downwards, if they move freely then proceed to the next step. Look for any paper or any loose pieces that are stuck between the rollers and casing, if so then remove it from the printer.

Close the casing at the back,Switch on the printer, now open the front of the printer, the lid should be pushed slightly upwards, you will see a clear ribbon and a round rubber bar, also you will notice the printer cartridges moving to the side as you open the lid of that printer. If the cartridges did not move back to the one side, it means that the guidance rod is dirty and sticky, even if it did move to the side, and you heard the grinding noise, take a piece of paper towel, wipe the metal rod clean, now take some clear vaseline, gently apply it to the length of the shaft / rod, now close the lid and open the lid after powering the printer. If the problem persist, it could mean that the roller gear is worn, this is situated on the one side of the round rubber feeder / roller. Try moving the roller with your thumbs, up or down. Is it jammed? Y then replace or have it repaired. N Close the lid, insert the paper and press the paper feeder button, did it load correct? Y then it is fixed, if not get back to me asap
