Can't open PC...
    #4594898 - 08/29/05 01:44 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

So yeah, my PC is stuck shut.  I have a Presto that can hold 7 normal pint jars or 5 1/2 pint wide mouths.  There is a locking button that pops up when the pressure builds up in the PC.  Well, this locking button is not going down all the way and I can't open my PC now  :sad:.  I have tried jamming it down with a chopstick/pen-butt without success.  I also just tried getting it hot again (boiling whats left in the PC) but no luck there either.

Anyone have this problem with Presto or know how I could get my jars?

The only thing holding the lock (just opened my Presto PC and investigated lock mechanics) is a small synthetic rubber disc (what probably happened is it got too hot [somehow] and melted the lock in place) yet it should not take too much force to release it.

Try using a screw driver inserted into the locks entry hole and beat downward. If that doesn't work grab a hammer, say "fuck it" and beat the living shit out of it.

GOOD LUCK

Grab the handle of the pc and tilt it up. It sounds like one of the jar lids has the washer for the handle lock seized up. You'll need to try to lightly move the jars away from the handle lock in order to free it up.

LOL, sound more logical than my theory.

Good Luck with that bro.

Thanks everyone. In case any are wondering, tipping the handle up and shaking the PC all around eventually freed the washer. $$
