Fagor Duo 8 quart pressure cooker, how does the yellow indicator seat under the lid?

  • 0

I just purchased this, doing test runs with 2 cups of water, 5 minutes high pressure to find and mark the correct low setting on gas stove.

How far up does the yellow indicator seat against the bottom of the lid? I was getting a long 7 minutes to get the yellow indicator, I noticed stream, water under the handle, under the yellow indicator, I bumped it, poped up, went to pressure.

Cooling it down, lid off, I pushed the thumb lock forward and flipped the lid over. I pushed the indicator up  like steam would. Should the indicator with the small washer move flush to the lid aka washer against the lid? Mine doesn't, it stops way short,  on the top part of the handle the yellow indicator just becomes level with the hole, aka doesn't stick out above it, is this normal, should it be higher?

What looks like is happening is it gets slightly jammed going up.
