Question about Tiger JNP-1000 5.5-Cup Rice Cooker

1 Answer

Cover latch after many years of almost daily use, the cover will not latch down. i can't tell if the problem is in the metal cover latch or the plastic holder in the body. i've tried twisting the metal piece around but nothing works. where can i get spare parts? my only solution has been to use a bungee cord to hold the lid closed. there is a groove on the bottom of the body that fits the bungee perfectly.

Re: cover latch

You may need to tighten the screw for the metal post where it's held to the top lid. This should help to extend the metal post to reach over the plastic latch, enough to latch down the lid.

How do I replace a battery on zojirushi rice cooker

You will probably find (like I did) that the battery is a large (about 30mm diamter and 10mm thick) lithium one that is soldered directly onto the main PCB. You will need to open the cooker (ensure that it is unplugged) and remove the PCB. There will probably be a lot of different size plugs on the PCB which you need to remove first. On my cooker I found that these were all different sizes and/or colours, so the could not be mixed-up. Unsolder the battery from the PCB and solder a PP3 battery connecter in its place. Replace the PCB and run the PP3 connector to a suitable space inside the case (away from any 'live' items). Place two AA/penlight 1.5 lithium batteries into a 3 Volt holder and connect this to the PP3 lead. Then secure the holder in a suitable location inside the case. In future changing the batteries is much easier!!! Note that when you open the case, the screws are on the base of the cooker, and there are also some plastic clips which help hold the case together - pull carefully to release these once the screw have been removed.

Error E01 appears when power on, can not do anything after that

Open the plastic cover on the back where the lid is attached and expose the wires. One of those might be broken.

We bought a Zojirushi NS-WAC18 rice cooker, but I lost the user manual. Where Can I find it on line?

Most of the Zojirushi rice cooker manuals are available from the company's support site: . For the NS-WAC18, see the manual for the NS-WAC10/18 manual. The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

Hitachi Rice Cooker/Steamer RD-5083. Need new plastic top for the metal lid of cooker.

hi, I'm looking for the user's manual and found your question.
You can fix it using a piece of wood and screwing it with a Stainless Steel sheetmetal screw (like a #6x1/2"lg ss)
You can also painted if you like it.

Replacing clock battery on the ecj-b35s

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). 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

The rice looks like plastic

Try putting one cup of uncooked rice to one cup of water (rather than a cup and a half of water). Also, to keep the rice white longer, you can add a few drops of white vinegar to the rice and water mixture before you turn it on. Hope this helps!

Cooking Rice

Ironically, I came to this site with the same questin you posted. I just found my manual. This is how tha manual tells you to steam rice:

Place one of the steamer baskets on the steamer base.

Place 1 cup of rice and 10 ozs of water in the rice bowl.

Place the rice bowl on the steamer basket and cover the steamer.

Set timer for approximately 32 minutes, depending on your taste.

Good luck!
