Question about Sanyo ECJ-B35S Micom 3.5-Cup Rice Cooker
According to the manual, the battery is integrated into the main body and requires taking it to a dealer for replacement. Now how hard is it to replace a battery anyway.
I am just not sure exactly where it's located. Assume it's under the front plate where the menu and button are located since that's the logical place.
Has anyone replaced one of these batteries and has some good pointers before I start taking things apart! I would rather do it right the first time rather than have to search around for it by taking different thing off looking for it.
Any help, suggestions would be appreciated
This web site has a photos on how to open the Sanyo rice cooker:
The solution shown is to install an external battery pack,
but in the battery looks like a 3 volt Panasonic CR-2354/HFN .
(picture is too blurred to read a part number,
so you should check your own cooker).
http://www.digikey.com carries this part
(listed as P274-ND) for $1.90 plus $7.50 UPS ground service
(only carrier authorized to ship lithium batteries)
I used this battery to repair my William Sonoma SR-MK10S
Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker which is the same as a
NationalSR-MM10N. I found the Panasonic repair manual at

Desolder the battery soldered to the pcb.If the connecting pins are welded to the battery, take is apart by force. Then solder the pins back to the pcb. then place the new battery.

After removing the positive and negative tabs from the dead battery, simply solder the correct tab to a Renata battery holder(614-SMTU2450N-LP). Purchase 3 volt lith battery(658-CR2450) and insert into holder. Both parts are available at Mposer Electronics. Next battery replacement is a snap-out-old, snap-in-new. Of course you'll have to disassemble/reassemble the faceplate, bottom, inner control panel, and two(one metal/one plastic) plates. It takes about 1/2 hour for this process, and you now can replace batteries easily when required.
