pressure cooker troubles
    #1659704 - 06/24/03 08:47 PM (21 years, 1 day ago)

does anyone know how/why an otherwise healthy pressure cooker would seemingly randomly stop holding pressure?  like, say, it might be exhausting steam around the seal....  :crazy:

or maybe try the usual... either apply vasoline or veggie oil - see if either helps?

Welcome to the world of Gasket PC's.. When you get tired of spending $14 every year for a gasket set go get an All American from Ebay.

NEVER, NEVER use vegetable oil on anything made of gum.

As suggested, you?ll have to get a new seal...which might prove difficult for such an old cooker.

Had that problem on a new one myself.

Look at the handles, on the outside of the handles there might be bolts? Try tightening them down as on my model the handles actually move , you really cant see them move but when pressure builds up they move with the PC and it is how it seals. I tightened mine more after being jared around and it fixed the problem.. Probably depends on your PC and its amenities
