All American PC Question
    #3859850 - 03/02/05 11:10 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I got an all american PC and I lubed the side of the lip like it said in the instructions but It still lets a lot of steam out through the sides and on the top by the weight nipple, and with my stove on Med hi it would still not climb to 15 psi. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?? Is this PC defective??

in the manual it says if the weight is shaking 2-4 times per minute the designated PSI has been acheived (regardless of what the guage says).. Mine usually shows about 13 psi on the guage when the weight is rocking

my weight wasnt rocking at all. And all kinds of steam was coming out at various places around the seal. Is this normal. Should I turn my stove to HIGH? how can I tell its time to start timing the cook?

The first couple times you use the new pressure cooker there is sometimes a small leak around the outside.. I always turn my stove to high for a little while until the designated pressure is almost met..then in my case i turn it down to like medhi.
Don't be afraid to let it gain pressure.. It has a valve that pops out if it goes too high. i'm not saying to disregard safety but you hear me..

so how should I gauge there being enough pressure and steam to start sterilizing my jars?

There is a guage to give you a decent idea of what your pressure is!

tighten the nuts, 2 at a time across from each other. as tight as you can get them. keep the lid even. i find that when i tighten the lid correctly i can use 1 inch of water in it. It heats up in less time and cooks properly

wooohooo I did what you said and turned the heat way up and finally achieved proper pressure, and the weight started to jiggle. Thanks man

there should be little if any leaks around the lid/main body seal
