I have a MS 430...just purchased and had the same problem. I used a large channel lock to take them off. Get one large enough to easily go around the lid.

Been there... Agree with menzies approach. Sometimes you need a lot of tapping to eventually loosen. Once removed lubricate the o-ring as mentioned and hand tighten only. Just donít wait too long (month or two) to reopen or you will have to go through the protracted effort again.
