error code E4

for Wolfgang Puck Electric Pressure Cooker 5qt pressure cooker

I bought the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker at HSN last summer and had plenty of trouble with it. Right now it is not working at all any more. On the display it says "E4". It also didn't heat and keep the steam anymore. What does that mean? Can that be fixed or do I have to complain about it to HSN? Thank you Katharina Wright

    There doesn't seem to be any legit way of fixing this. I tinkered with the pressure sensors and valves, kicked the pressure cooker a few times, still the E4 error presented itself.

    I was able to bypass the E4 error by completely bypassing the electronics and wiring the heater coil to get power whenever the pressure cooker is plugged in. It was a very simple job, anyone with any electrical experience can do this.

    The only problem is that it is a safety concern as there is no way for the heater to turn off even if pressure is getting to be way too high. There may be a pressure relief valve in the lid but the heater coil won't shut off, so don't leave it unattended! But at least this way to you can still pressure cook.
