Second batch in canner and seal fails

Asked August 18, 2019, 3:19 PM EDT

I have an All American pressure canner model 916 that works very well with a first batch. If I reload the canner to do a second batch immediately after the first, the seal between the lid and canner itself fails. Steam comes out from under the lid, it does not hold pressure, and I have to "abort the mission". I have tried re-oiling the rim, putting in fresh water, but for the 4th time now this has happened. Any ideas? Thanks!
