One trick that might come in handy. Sometimes the seal under my lid goes bad; at those times I go get the rubber shelf lining material at Wal Mart and cut a gasket that goes between the lid and the rubber ring... has sealed them up every time so far. I use a lot of semi dry heat, and seems to make the seals go bad faster.
