Possibly. It should first be noted that it is almost impossible to diagnose the cause of the symptom of leaking without seeing the pressure cooker. You should remove and carefully examine the gasket, make sure that it is clean. Examine it for feel, does it feel soft and pliable, are there cracks, built up food etc. Carefully look at the edge of the pressure cooker where the gasket contacts both the pan and lid. Run your finger along both, are ther bumps, dings etc. Try putting some water, note that word - not food - in the cooker and try to bring it to pressure. See if it leaks, then bring the pressure down, and rotate the gasket ninety degrees and repeat to see what happens. Gaskets will ordinarily last for a long time unless abused. One abuse is to store the pressure cooker with the gasket in place and the cooker lid closed. After using my cooker I remove the gasket wash the pot, lid and gasket and place the lid upside down on the pot and place the gasket on the lid,i.e. no pressure on the gasket. When washing I inspect to make sure that the gasket is clean, the lid has no food residue and that the pot rim is clean and ding free. I do this every time that I use the pressure cooker.
