This is the valve housing that fits on top of the lid, on models made since 1998 (except DM Top & TIMAX models). It also functions as the steam deflector. It clips into place over the valve cap. Note the shape: This item has a conical shape. (If your housing is "bell" shaped, see item 3852 instead.) Diameter is 3-3/4".

When you remove this part for cleaning, if you remove it by lifting its edge from only one side, it will come up crooked, and that can cause the retention clips underneath to break. If you instead slip your fingernails (using two hands) just under the rim of the housing on opposite sides of the rim-circle, you can then pull it straight upward without it getting crooked, and the retention clips won't break.

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
