This video helps you to find out why your Instant Pot sometimes leaks steam. More details and videos are at http://InstantPot.com.
When Instant Pot is pressurizing at the beginning, there is small amount of steam coming out of the float valve, until the float valve pops up and seals the cooker. This is perfectly normal. There are other situations of steam leaking due to mis-positioning of sealing ring, sticky float valve and unclean steam release handle. Please watch the video to find out how to fix those issues by yourself.
