Fits valves for all models, including Turn Top cookers and TIMAX models. (TIMAX model cookers are not sold in the U.S.) This is the O-Ring that fits either the 1485 valve, or the 3850 valve. (Note that if you buy the complete valves, the O-ring is included.) 

This item is NOT the lid gasket.

Has it been a while since you replaced your cooker's gasket? Gaskets need to be replaced periodically, as they harden over time and stop sealing, which causes pressure loss. It’s a gradual process that’s easy to overlook, but performance declines and before long your cooker won’t work at all. It's a good idea to keep a backup gasket on hand too, in case yours gets nicked or damaged by a stove burner, etc. You'll find all Kuhn Rikon gaskets on this page. Another crucial part that requires periodic replacement is the UL/SI valve. You don't need to replace it until it starts losing pressure, but once it does, performance will go downhill fast. For this reason, we recommend replacing the UL/SI valve at least every 3-4 years. You'll find the Kuhn Rikon UL/SI valve here. Kuhn Rikon gasket replacement Kuhn Rikon SI/UL valve replacement, #1565

    Thanks PHG.... You have great customer service. It wasn't about what you could sell me. It was about what was the right part.

    There is a large ring nut under the lid that holds the valve stem on the lid. It is simple to grasp with a slip joint or large pliers if after twisting the stem it does not loosen. Once the under lid nut is loosened pry the O-ring off the stem. After 20 years the ring had hardened and fragmented. I needed a very small pry bar or screwdriver and a hemostat to get it off. Then it is easy to replace. I asked Kuhn-Rikon to post a video for removal. I have bookmarked Pleasant Hill Grains as parts are hard to find. Thank you.

    I ordered a replacement product for my pressure cooker. Pleasant Hill Grain had exactly what I needed, in stock and shipped it very promptly. The web site is easy to navigate, they have an amazing selection of products. Before ordering anything in the future, I will check Pleasant Hill Grain first.

  • Replacement valve
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Very fragile rubber edges, must be gently installed, instructions worse than useless, actually detrimental. Valve bottom has three rubber lips, edge these in carefully or they will tear. Push them one at a time through hole. Good luck. Pleasent Hill and Kuhn Rikon helpful and apologetic.
