Warped AA 921?
    #27146440 - 01/13/21 08:45 PM (10 days, 1 hour ago)

I loaned out my AA 921 to someone and they accidentally melted some mycobags and got plastic all over inside of the main pressure pot. I'm guessing in all likelihood it ran out of water which caused the bags to melt, but I'm really not sure what happened. When I was inspecting it I also noticed the bottom was warped — it wasn't sitting flat on the counter, one side was about 1/8" higher than the other. I'm wondering if it warped at the same time the bags melted. I was under the impression AA's were pretty much bomb proof, but I guess I was mistaken. Have any of you warped an AA, or heard of this happening with one before? I'm a bit baffled as to exactly what happened.

I know sometimes using gas flame for heating causes too warping when flames are too high. Either way that friend ain’t telling you something.

Damn that sucks! I had a friend run my presto dry and it bulged out and melted damn near all my holy grail plates. He first tried blaming it on the plates, saying they were shitty quality, even tho I had cooked them a bunch of times myself, then I look in the cooker and it’s bone dry! He bought me a new one... luckily it was only a presto. I’m surprised that your all American did that too. Sorry dude

I'm more than a little disappointed to say the least. It is an old PC which I bought used 15 years ago when I was first getting into mycology and has been there every step of my journey with this hobby. I suppose I really shouldn't have loaned it out in the first place. :crying:

I had a spawn bag burst. The grain ended up in the bottom of my presto
The grain soaked up the water and the pc got hot and the bottom warped.

I turned the pc upside down on a concrete slab. I grabbed a 4x4 inch piece of wood three foot long and place the wood on the bottom of the pc. Then I pounded a couple time on the 4x4 with a sludge hammer and the bottom went back into it normalcy.

Oh interesting... thats a really good thought. The rest of the PC is in great shape, its just the bottom is wobbly now. I was looking on the All American site just now and found they sell replacement bottoms, so that is an option as long as their newer bottoms fit my old ass PC. I may have to try pounding it back into shape before ordering a new bottom for $110. The other issue is that all their PCs are backordered until August, but perhaps that isn't the case with replacement parts, I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Don't they have a lifetime warranty?

Any post I post here is pure speculation from other read posts
Best tip for cultivation!
