Rice cooker unit does not turn on after ading rice and water.

The panel light turned off during rice cooking even though there was still some water left. I have checked the power source and it's okay, but the unit fails to operate when plugged into the socket. Please help.

This unit has had many recalls. Oster got a bad unit and is telling customers to return for free replacement. The 3072 model has a bad computer board. Take it back for free replacement.

Look for national rice-o-mat model SR-3F


I have this rice cooker (it's very small) and the original instruction booklet:

HOW TO USE
1. Measure rice with measuring cup. One cup of uncooked rice will make about 3 cups of cooked rice.
2. Wash rice 4 or 5 times with fresh water in another bowl. Wash until water becomes relatively clear.
3. Put rice and water into the pan. As a rule, add water to uncooked rice in the following standard proportions.

2 cups rice to 2 - 2 1/2 cups water
3 cups rice to 3 - 3 1/2 cups water

4. Place the pan directly on the internal heating plate, and make sure that the pan is properly located on the heating plate by turning it slightly to the right and left as shown. (see CAUTION) . Before placing the pan in the cooker, wipe off water and moisture from the outside (especially the bottom) of the pan.
5.Put on the lid.
6.Insert the plug end into a wall outlet.
7.Push the switch button to the "ON" position. Make sure the pilot lamp is on. When the rice is done, the switch will turn off automatically, the lamp will go out and a click will be heard.
8.Even after the switch is off, leave the lid on for at least 15 minutes more. During that period, the rice will be properly steamed to a fluffy character by the retained heat.

SOME HELPFUL HINTS
• Always tasty rice

With your National Automatic RICE•O•MAT you can have uniformly cooked rice ... you can even cook rice to your personal taste and preference. Taste and degree cooked depend upon the quality of the rice and the length of time it is soaked before being placed into the cooker. Add more water than specified for softer, more fluffy rice; less water for firmer rice.
• Rice may bubble over ...

If you use too much water or if the cooker is tilted, rice may bubble over. To prevent rice from bubbling over, add water using the cup included (refer to How to use, Item 3.)

HOW TO CLEAN THE COOKER
Do not immerse the body into water or spray water onto it. Wipe it clean with a wet dishcloth soaked in hot water.

Does steam tray/lid go on top or bottom of rice cooker?


The steam tray as you call it goes on the inside bottom of the cooker. It's purpose is to keep the cooking rice separated from the heating element during the steaming process. The basic measurement is 2 parts water to 1 part rice. Add a quarter cup more water for brown rice. The automatic shut-off won't turn off until the water is gone. It's magic! Cleaning; soak the cook pot and perforated plate to remove rice goo DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL PADS or abrasive cleanser. I use a nylon dish cleaning brush to remove the stuck on brown material.

Sensor problem turning off during cooking


If this is a new rice cooker first try cleaning the thermal sensing unit by scrubbing any build up with a green brillo like scrubber, also clean the bottom of the rice pot where it contacts the thermal sensing unit.
If this doesn't work and your rice cooker is 1 to 2 years old replace the thermal sensing unit.

I purchased today, when i tried to cook rice, followed directions, cook light only stayed on 10 minutes and warm light automatically turned on. Rice and water were cold. I tried several times and reread...


This a bad unit. You sould return for an exchange. There is thermo strip inside to control cooking time and to change the stage of ON/WARM light when it reaches the calibration point depending on the weight of rice to cook. Now it is not working.

Need directions for Comet stove top rice cooker


Fill the bottom to the line with water. Put two cups of rice in the top and two cups of water. Put on stove top on high until lower water is boiling, turn to medium heat. For white rice check after about 20 minutes, if water is assorbed and rice is tender, fluff with a fork...eat. If it needs a few more minutes of cooking, no problem.
Brown rice will take about 45 minutes.
I have used my stove top cooker for at least 35 years...ordered it with box top and some money from Comet Rice.

My rice cooker is scorching on the bottom.


You need to make sure you have enough water in there. When the rice is cooking, it is sucking up all that water so it can cook and expand. If you don't put enough water in the rice cooker, the rice will use up all the water and then if there is no water left, it will start burning the bottom of the rice because there is no more water.

Hope that helps :)

Digital oster 20 cup capacity rice cooker wont turn on


Rice cookers will only cook if you have enough water in it. If all the water has cooked out, then the cooker will turn off. Remember when you put your rice in the cooker, make sure you level it off. Then add twice as much water so that it will over cover the rice.

Rice cooking


if that rice when cooked is too soft or too hard.. then , you might want to add more water to it. the correct ratio for cooking rice is always 1 cup rice and 1 cup water. it also depends on what type of rice your cooking though, some type of rice become too mushy when too much water is added... so always have some minimal water to the uncooked rice.
