Question about Rival RC61 6-Cup Rice Cooker
The product has been working fine for more than a year, recently it stopped working. I have enough rice and water on the recipient, and also the electric outlet has been tested ok with another appliance. I press down the switch but the COOK light does not turn on. I unscrewed and removed the bottom plate and tested the mechanical system and seems to work properly making contacts as (I think) expected. SO I think there is something wrong with the electrical parts. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to test, check, remove the electrical components. thanks
I have had THREE different cookers over the past year and ALL THREE have done the exact same thing. It has to be electrical and I suspect it blows an internal fuse...then it is no longer working. This is awful. I would never recomend it to anyone.

Now you take off the nut and unscrew it from the pole. Cut off the insulation and underneath will be a Thermal Fuse. If you have a Ohm Meter or a continuity tester attach each lead to either side and it probably will test negative. Part # is written on the Thermal Fuse. Probably a
