what kind of safety valve does it have on it? my old one had a screw with soddering in it and when the pressure gets to high you have to replace the thing, I let mine dry out and it blew it cost like $10 for the valve so I just got a new PC for $12 and it's got the good safety valves that are spring loaded and don't blow out, if you have like 3 knobs on the lid it's the same as my new one if not you gotta replace the safety probably

sounds likt the thin aluminum ones.... it's possible you warped it... check the gasket, if its cracked replace it... also check the pressure let down/ safety plug.... this is assuming your has these....if none of it works or involves more than 3 parts....replace the PC....

A little steam coming from the pressure relief is normal , steam coming from around the perimeter , where the lid meets the pot itself , is a sign that the gasket/seal is bad , get a replacement and see if that corrects the problem .
