Question about Rival RC61 6-Cup Rice Cooker

1 Answer

Rival 6-cup rice cooker does not work

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.

Mine just did as well today. Thought I blew a fuse, but no, just not working, although it did finish the pot of rice.

Sounds like the Thermal Fuse inside is blown unscrew the 2 screws on bottom of the cooker you should see a small 2.5 inch insulation wrapped wire leaving a ceramic mounting block to one of the element poles. 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

I lost the measuring cup. Can I use a regular measuring cup? If so, what amount would I use? For 1 cup, 2 cups,or 3 cups? I'm sure there is a solution. Thanks.


1 cup of rice in the rival cup does NOT equal 1 cup of rice in a regular measuring cup. I lost mine too and I've found that using 3/4 cup of a regular measuring cup works with the lines on the inside of the pot

No instrution manual


You are an *******....Just to be blunt....This person is asking how to cook the rice to water ration in the rival 6 cup rice cooker and that ratio is like other ways to cook rice, which you are completely wrong about maybe you should take some lessons on how to cook. Its 1 PART RICE TO 2 PARTS WATER....NOT EQUAL, and in the cooker its 2 cups rice and 4 cups water makes a perfect pot!
