The 2 pressure switches on the sterilizer work as the sensors to control the power supplies to its heating elements. If the steam trap

(click HERE) is working properly, then you need to check these 2 pressure switches. If it isn’t, the steam trap will need to be replaced.

Another possibility is that the temperature gauge may be defective.

This machine control unit is pretty simple, so not too many factors are involved.

Also, remember that the Market Forge temperature setting is lower than a regular sterilizer. Its default temperature settings is 250F instead of 273F.
