Question about Rival S16 Electric Skillet

1 Answer

Rival electric skillet # S16g-CN

I have a pretty basic question on this appliance. It died after about 1 year's use. When the controller is plugged in there is no thermostat indicator light on. Is this likely the element or the controller? If it is the controller, can a replacement be purchased? Thanks, Ken

    The thermostat does not work. The skillet operates at a "high" heat only.

I have just taken apart the probe / thermostat of this model for a friend. I am an amateur, but it is such an amazingly SIMPLE piece of equipment (in the non-digital, i.e. mechanical thermostat model I'm looking at, that it is clear that the light will be "on" if the thermostat is sending electricity to the heating element, WHETHER OR NOT the element is broken or even connected to thermostat: In other words, if the light is not going on with thermostat knob in any position but OFF, the problem is with the thermostat: The pilot light goes on even if thermostat is NOT PLUGGED INTO the pan; when functioning properly, which one can observe on working pan even w/o taking it appart. But if you have digital model, this will be of less sure use to you, tho the way two yellow wires go to pilot light INDEPENDENT of power returning from pan itself, it suggests the same may be true with all their models.

This is quite a comprehensive list of small appliance part suppliers. I recommend you go to this site, once it opens in your web browser, press "Ctrl f" which will open a little word search window. Type in "rival" in the space and click "next". Each time you press next "rival" will be highlighted in the next company that sells their parts. You should then be able to find the web-site for that company by scrolling down a bit further.

Rival Electric Skillet S16G


Hi, Your skillet is either defective or someone has left it on high with nothing in it. Either way, if it is still under warrenty, I would try and return it. As there is some debate about the toxicity of teflon, I would be very careful about using this unit any further.

If you are going to keep the skillet, try using steel wool to remove the loose teflon, maybe even sanding it all off if you want, then polish with fine steel wool and use the skillet as a regular uncoated electric fry pan.

Hope this helps, and if you found this response satisfactory, please vote. Thanks and good luck.

I find that in viewing this site that the listed " solution" is not a solution at all! This skillet has a defective design and coating and should be recalled!
