This problem may also arise due to the quantity of food or liquid or the presence of frozen food in the instant pot.
Here are some of the common problems which may lead to NoPr error.
Problem No 1: Sealing Ring Not Properly Seated:
If the sealing ring of the instant pot is not properly fixed then it may lead to NoPr error.
Solution: Make sure to fix the sealing ring properly in the instant pot for a better build-up of the pressure.
Problem No 2: Expansion Of Sealing Ring:
The sealing ring expands naturally when it is heated. If you have just cooked something completely, then the sealing ring may already be in its expanded state. You may need to wait for the sealing ring to come to its natural state otherwise your instant pot may show the NoPr error message.
Solution: Try to run water over the sealing ring so that it contracts under cold water for better results of cooking.
Problem No 3: Too Much Water Evaporated:
If you realize that your instant pot wasn’t sealed properly and you correct it then there are many chances that you may have allowed the water to evaporate and then there is less amount of water left to generate pressure.
Solution: Open your instant pot and check the amount of liquid in it, add some more water if necessary.
Problem No 4: Damaged Sealing Ring:
If the sealing ring is damaged then it may also lead to the NoPr error.
Solution: For this problem, you may need to change your sealing ring and buy a new one.
