  1. Why won’t it come on?.! Used once, plugged it in and started right up. This time it will not start no matter what I try

  2. I bought Montel Williams pressure cooker model EPC650D. Put it up for a gift and forgot.Never opened and is missing the release valve. I called Tristar who no longer makes the product. They gave me me a number to call and they have no parts past last year and told me to buy a new one. Will give me a deal $33.00 times 3 payments
    . Are you serious?Is this how customers are treated and Mr. Williams is fine with
    this. One lousey valve and the machine is not safe to operate.

  3. I have a Living Well Pressure cooker model EPC660D and I lost the stainless steel pressure post. I also need a new black Pressure release valve. I cannot find the items online and the customer service number on my manual, 1-800-718-5135 only talks about a juicer. Why am I unable to purchase the replacement pressure release valves ?

  4. I found the number to call for parts replacement. Ive been on hold an hour but its better then throwing cooker out cuz i lost the pressure release valve. 973-5163. Tristar Products. Good luck

  5. 3 years ago I got one of your livin g well pressure cookers. It no longer works. I was wondering your procedure on how to return it. It came with a life time warranty. my phone number is 307 724 0034. I would appreciate in hearing from you.

  6. I’ve had Montel Williams Living Well pressure cooker for quite sometime and love it, have never had a bad meal cooked in it. My husband loves bowtie pasta with chicken which I fixed in the pressure cooker, added pasta sauce and turned out perfect. I have cooked frozen chicken breasts with red sauce and no problem. Also cooked beef roasts and pork roasts, not dry at all. I have cooked a whole chicken in it also, flavor was great. I check the recipes and then do some variations of mine own which is fun to do. Our daughter-in-law was so impressed with my electric pressure cooker she told our son she wanted an electric pressure cooker also. I’m not at all afraid to use it as I was with the one I used on my gas stove. Would recommend this pressure cooker to anyone.

  7. What did I do wrong? I cooked the frozen chicken with tomato sauce and pasta. It burned on the bottom and it took 20 minutes to build up pressure.

  8. I am tired of looking at mine. I took the lid off to clean it, and something fell out … I think it was the float? I am willing to send my to someone for the price of shipping only so I don’t have to look at it! it’s been used about 6 times.

  9. I would like to have the 800#for the company so that I can order a valve for the top.. I can’t use the cooker because the pressure valve is gone. Please help.

    • The gasket for the valve is junk and will continue to fall off, good luck. The people you finally get, not only don’t speak English well but clearly don’t understand it either. It’s garbage and they know it, hence why you are not able to get any help when something goes wrong and believe me it will. I gladly am trashing mine and will shop at a legit company for my next one!

    • Donna Craffery if you are still looking for part, I don’t use this pressure cooker too used to the manual ones. But I can sell mine for $20 which will hopefully include shipping. I misplaced the glass cover and spoon but everything else is there. Let me know.

      • I don’t know if you still have your pressure cooker, but like a lot of people, I am looking for the float valve as well and noticed you’d be willing to sell yours for $20. If it is still available, would you mind letting me know so I can maybe set something up with you. Thanks

  10. Hello.

    I am looking for a replacement of the floating valve of my Montel Williams Pressure Cooker.

    It is very disappointing not to have a formal web-site for parts and maintenance. I have been looking allover the web because the costumer number don’t care about requests. They promised will call again for the information and I still waiting for it. In the mean time, I am unable to use the pressure cooker. Can somebody tell me where I can get the replacement for the floating valve, Please?

  11. Love the Living well cooker. I do have a problem with it. Whenever I set the time and pressure I get an F4 which will not let me go any further. I would like your assistance with this a I would like to keep using it. Thank you!!

    • Mine too has the F4 readout and can’t use it until that’s gone and I love my pressure cooker and use it every day. My pressure cooker is essential to my kitchen cooking. How do I get rid of the F4 or F5 to go back to green lights.

  12. Love the pressure cooker but…….can’t get replacement parts for it. So what’s so good about that. Call customer service and am speaking with some who is out of this country. Then they tell you to go to Walmart, Costco and other stupid place that don’t sell parts anymore than sell Montels pressure cooker.

    My neighbor just asked me about the best pressure cooker to buy and I can’t even tell her about buying living well because day after buying, can’t get parts. Any suggestions. Would not recommend buying till the resolve this problem. Really ashamed because it s a good product.


  13. I need the pressure relief valve. Where can I find one? These units are no longer made. I called the number posted and they said (we cannot help you sir) no longer made in India

    I have the Living Well Pressure Cooker # epc660d model.

  14. I loved this Living Well Montel Pressure Cooker, but the electronic panel started giving me the F4 code and when I called the number listed in my instruction book, I was told it has been changed to another number and the number was given to me, but upon calling that number the man could not help me and proceeded to tell me all they do was sale parts such as gasket etc. Who do I contact for repair or replacement part?
