How to Fix Instant Pot OverheatingThe dreaded Instant Pot OvHt code
Oh, the dreaded OvHt code. OvHt is the Instant Pot’s Overheat code – and is both a blessing and a curse as I develop recipes for the Instant Pot. From the InstantPot.com “Questions after your purchase”:
This mechanism is called “burn-protection”. When a high temperature (140C or 284F) is detected at the bottom of the inner pot, the burn-protection mechanism suspends heating to avoid burning food. On Instant Pot IP-DUO series, a warning message “ovHt” is flashed on the display.
