Question about Rival 32 Oz. Hot Pot - White

Open Question

White scale forms on the heating element of the Rival Hot Pot

What is the scale? I only use Distilled Water, which should be mostly free of impurities. I'm concerned that the scale is something harmful that I'm consuming when using the boiled water for tea or coffee.

Yes, it's not unusual for the outside to be too hot to touch. A slow cooker won't get as hot as a bare burner on the stove, but it still gets hot enough to cook meat. The outside has a bit of insulation, but it still may get hot enough to cause pain, melt a bread bag, etc. Be sure and place it where no one will accidentally touch it.

If you are still looking I may have what you need. I live in Canada so you would need to pay the shipping which could be high as the liner is heavy. If you are interested feel free to email me.

You do not put water in the base. Just put your ingredients in the crock part and whatever liquid the receipe calls for. you can probably find the instruction manual on crockpot.com or call and ask them to send one.

SOURCE: How to clean the inside of tea pot (scale

Vinegar is very good at removing scaly deposits. Heat white/clear vinegar just as you would normally heat the water for your tea. After heating the vinegar, pour out and rinse thoroughly with water. If there are still deposits after this first attempt, use vinegar once again. Once you are satisfied that all the deposits have been removed, heat water in the tea pot 2-3 times to remove any smell or taste from the vinegar (before using for tea).

I want use distilled water in my new Rowenta DG8030 steam station but instructions say to use 1/2 tap water and 1/2 distilled water or 100% spring water. Why can't I use 100% distilled water? Why can't I...


Believe it or not, distilled water is quite corrosive, more so when hot. Distilled water doesn't contain any dissolved ions but the water is ionic in nature, the ions of every water molecule tend to dissolve away other elements. Steam generating plants and steam ships as well as steam heating systems treat the water with chemicals to keep the water from eating away the metals of the system and test the chemical makeup several times a day while operating. [I spent 4 years in the Navy on a steam powered ship.]
The same holds true for smaller steam appliances like espresso machines and steamers. A very thin coating of calcium carbonate [limestone] is a good protector but too much makes for inefficiencies and burned up elements.
Somewhere I read that Chrystal Geyser spring water is approximately the correct ion balance for espresso machines and I have been using it for years in my espresso machine. In any case you still need to occasionally de-scale your steamer per the manufacturers recommendations.

Why does my self cleaning gas water heater make clicking noises?


zdriscoll-

All tank water heaters make some amount noise, clicking and "snapping" sounds, particularly after much of the hot water in tank has been used (like after a long shower) and has been replaced by cold water that is being heated vigorously.

If the noises are accompanied by poor or erratic performance, or obviously if something malfunctions, you may require the services of a repair connection.

Hope this helps.

Can't remove all that scale on this v745a humidifier. thanks


Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour the solution in and let it sit for 30 minutes, Then start the humidifier and let it run until almost all of the solution has been used. Turn the unit OFF, empty the remaining solution and fill the tank with Bottles Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and run for 30 minutes. This will flush out any of the remaining solution. The remaining water should be disposed of and in the future, use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water. That way you will not have to worry about calcium and mineral build up at all. Plus, the mist that's generated will be totally void of any harmful minerals.

Hope this helped you solve the cleaning issue. Please let me know. Thanks!

My coffee maker takes 20 minutes to brew a pot of coffee- extremely slow- I've lost the manual and do not know how to correct this...please help.


The first suggestion is de-calcify as the heating element is probably coated. The following should explain what I mean.

Most likely you have calcium flake deposits clogging the orifice/jet/valve, that restricts the flow of water until heated properly. As the water starts to flow the flakes collect and block the water flow. Periodic cleaning will cure this and prevent damage to the, orifices, jets,valves and heating elements of your machine ( as calcium builds up it tends to insulate the heating element thus requiring more energy/heat to complete the task). Eventually the heating element will over heat and burn out. Periodic cleaning extends the life of the machine plus the added bonus of a better tasting " Cup of JOE".
Most any cleaning preparation designated for a "Mr. Coffee " type machine will do the job. If you want a home remedy 3-4 tablespoons of white distilled vinegar per cup of water ( calculate for the size of your water reservoir ). But please do it outside on the patio, as the vinegar tends to be in competition with the air freshener, and will win.

sincerely,

How do I clean the heating elements in my swan tea kettle. it looks like a mineral build up on the elements that comes off when the element is hot and the minerals fall into my tea water


IF THE BUILD UP OF SCALE IS BAD YOU MAY HAVE TO TREAT SEVERAL TIMES TO CLEAN. VINIGER IS A GOOD CHOICE, JUST FILL ABOVE THE COILS AND LET SIT AND DO THIS AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES TO CLEAN THE COILS. ANOTHER GOOD PRODUCT IS CALLED- CLR MOST HOME DEPOTS HANDLE THIS PRODUCT IT STANDS FOR C-CALSIUM / L- LIME / R- RUST
THIS IS A LITTLE STRONGER THEN VINIGER BUT DOES THE SAME THING. BOTH WILL TAKE SEVERAL CLEANINGS

There may be a fault with the thermstat or the heating element.
