Subject: Fagor won't pressurize!
Date: June 8, 2004 at 10:13 am PST

My Fagor Multirapid, which I have had several years and has always worked great, will not come up to pressure. The gasket has been replaced once, and still looks good. I removed and cleaned the valve. Still no luck. The steam seems to be escaping from the handle. Could this be some sort of safety-valve malfunction? Between the main valve and the handle, on the underside of the lid, there is a little button-like thing... is that another valve? If it is, I can't figure out how to clean or inspect it. I've done everything I can think of, and tried bringing it up to pressure 6 times with no luck, and had to throw my beans out (wah!). Please help!
