weight not jiggling?

Asked June 20, 2020, 4:11 PM EDT

We have a All American Pressure Cooker Canner 921. The guage shows 11 pounds pressure and we have the weight (the jiggler) on at 10 pounds. The weight is not jiggling. We know that the valve is clear and free of issues- so we don't know if the weight should be jiggling at this point or not? it isn't so is there something wrong? first time user and nervous about using a pressure canner.

Hi:
My suggestion is to contact the manufacturer of the equipment (All American - ?). They know better on how to operate and make it work. Hopefully you have their website/email/phone number.
