Duromatic 3043 0513. does not come up to pressure untiil I

Customer Question

Duromatic 3043 0513. does not come up to pressure untiil I pressed on the relief valve. Presumably this needs replacing.
JA: What's the brand and model of your appliance? How old is it?
Customer: Itis is a Duromatic 3043 0513, less than 10 years
JA: How long has this been going on? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I removed the disc from above the pressure relief and the steam seemed to be issuing from the little rubber pressure relief valve. I pressed hard on this and the cooker came up to pressure
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I had previously removed the pressure valve and wiped it clean. The rubber seal ring is original
