Question about Rival 38601 Smart Pot 6-Quart

1 Answer

Lid Knob The knob on the lid is some kind of plastic. It has developed several cracks. How/where can I find a replacement? It simply screws on so I can do the repair myself if I can find the part. Sharon Brantley carroll_sharon@bellsouth.net After cooking on low for 12 hours, and the pot in the "warm" setting for awhile, I unplugged the unit and tried to remove the lid. It seemed stuck at first, but them the knob pulled free of the lid (broke off). I needed to gently pry the lid from the pot to retrieve my dinner. I had a similar problem with the same cooker a couple of years ago. I was finally able to get a replacement from Rival, but unfortunately they sent a compete new lid with the knob - not what I needed. Now I have two perfectly fine lids, but without a knob on either one. I'm frustrated and would like to find a more substantial knob that will attach through the glass lid with a screw. The Rival knobs seem to be very flimsy - stylish, but not good quality.

Contact manufactuer for a replacement handle. You should find the toll free number (or) website in the users manual. If you no longer have the manual type in www."the manufactuer".com

Your crock pot may still be under warranty (or) they may even send you the handle free of charge, who knows

The knob on lid broke off. Can it be replaced?


Yes, visit down to Home Depot. They have a large range of metal, plastic and wooden knobs in the hardware section. Take the lid with you to check the size of the screw.

Where can I get a replacement lid hand for my Rival slow cooker model no scv655?


Rival is now Crock-pot.com. Their parts page for your model shows no parts, but they list a toll-free number you can call. Try that and see if they have a different model lid or handle that will work.

When a friend's cooker lid needed a handle, I picked up a plain round wooden drawer pull at Home Depot, used a wood rasp to round the end of the knob a little to fit the curve of the lid, and put thin rubber washers from the plumbing aisle under the screw head and between the knob and lid so I wouldn't crack the glass when tightening the screw for a snug fit. Nearly two years now and it's still holding on. If you can't get an original replacement part, maybe you can roll your own.

Need plastic handle on Rival Crockpot lid.


For what it's worth, when the handle on my mother-in-law's crockpot broke, I went to Home Depot and bought a cheap wooden drawer knob (about $1 as I recall). I put a plastic washer between the knob and the glass and another under the screw head from the bottom (to prevent cracking the lid), tightened the screw and good as new.

Broken lid on crock pot 3150/2


I just found a glass lid from a 9" or 10" pot and use it, but it doesn't have the height that the plastic one has so it tends to spill a little bit if I'm not careful.

Need plastic handle on Rival Crockpot lid.


I am Jo Anne Gomez who posted original problem and thought the problem was resolved with husband putting on a knob he found at the hardware store. Just wanted to let you all know that the handle we thought would solve the problem DID NOT....after he replaced the knob and we did another roast in it the lid totally shattered after we'd cooked another roast (luckily the glass did not get into the food), however, this is just a BAD PROBLEM and these lids should ALL be recalled. I have seen, just recently, the exact same crock pot and lid being sold for much less. I think that these crock pots should not even be sold but taken off the market to prevent lawsuits or horrible problems. Just wanted to let you know our solution did not work and Rival was not helpful at all.

Lid Knob


Just called the number (found on the web) for the Wal Mart Model 106661 of this and they are sending me a form to replace the base (with the heating element in it). Also have the same problem with the lid handle. Asked them about getting a new handle and they said I could order an entire new lid. A ceramic cabinet knob with the SS screw and washers sounds like a better solution then buying a new lid. Info date 1/21/08

Replacement Knobs for the Rival Slow cooker


I HAD the problem with the handle snapping off the lid of my oval 6qt lid - until I spent 10 minutes and $2 in the cabinet hardware section of Home Depot. Now I have a stylish silver & white handle on my crock pot lid. The bolt and grommet were re-used, several little tiny o-rings were added as spacers, along with a drop of Loc-tite.
