Why the fuck won't my pc close?
    #2326546 - 02/12/04 01:31 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Alright, so I have this old presto pc, and I've never had problems with it, but this time, however, it won't fucking close if the seal is on. Has anyone else had this problem? I can align it, but I can push it shut..... You have no idea how badly this is pissing me off.

You did not mention the size of your pressure cooker but from looking at some owned by a a neighbor I see that the large one has an arrow to offer a visual clue on top alignment. If your seal has gotten old from age and will not compress or some other reason I would recommend chamging it with a new one.

Place the lid flat on the counter and make sure the top has not becpme warped, if the lid is in good shape then do the same with the pot portion to chaeck for warpage. Check the ears for damage.

because you cuse in a forum to make you seem "hardcore" :-P

if it wont make a seal, try using some cooking oil. dip your finger in it and run it along the seal. that usually helps for me :smile:

try taking the rubber seal out, and running cold water over it, this will shrink it a little, and then you maybe able to get the lid on.

Alright, I'm going to change all of these things. I was/am really angry, because I've spent like an hour and a half trying to get it on, so I'm very frustrated. Anyway, thanks for the advice, I'm going to go try again.

Mine had a plastic protective layer on the top that wouldn't let it close, maybe that is still on there....

SOME PC'S HAVE A TAB THAT STICKS DOWN UNDER PRESSURE TO PREVENT OPENING UNDER PRESSURE.
IF SO HOLD UP W/ SOMETHING AND TRY AGAIN..HOPE IT HELPS

Nah, finally got it to work. Soaked the seal in warm water for a little over and hour. Finally got it to work after a couple of attempts. Thanks for the help everyone.
