Whats Goin ON!?
    #3961981 - 03/23/05 11:13 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

how come the rocker on my little 4.2qt mirro doesn't ever rock??

It kinda sits up high and steam comes out but it never really rocks
ive tried turning the heat up, and turning it down with no success

i put 1 in. water in the bottom
put the rack down
put the jars on the rack
close the lid and put the stove on 2/3rd's heat without rocker on
then when steam starts flowing from the pipe i set the rocker on.. i can hear it pressurize but after a while the rocker just sits up a little higher and steam is coming out but it never rocks..

once the rocker is on and i can see steam coming out is when i start timing.. it works for the jars but it doesn't seem right to not rock

on that note, how has ten psi worked for you? I've got the same Mirro but haven't used it yet.

possibly a leak in the cooker letting pressure escape from another site therefore never letting the cooker get up to the proper pressure ie "rocking"

I would look around the lid for small leaks while its cooking.

Be careuful steam is hot :satan: :satan: :satan:

it's only been used about three to four times and I cleaned the rubber lining ..

also checked on the outsides and there are no leaks that i can see so far
it's only a $20 one from wal-mart.. maybe I will take it back and get a new one but the bottom handle broke.
