Lost pressure

Asked October 21, 2019, 3:25 PM EDT

I have a graniteware 20 quart pressure canner and have been using it for 3 years. This is the first year I've used it this much. I was canning acorn squash in qrts it had 10 minutes left to go and the weight started to slow with its jiggling. The gas stove was still on but it stopped jiggling after about 7 minutes. I have no idea what went wrong and if the squash will be edible after it all cools down. Please advise.
