Question about Rival 38601 Smart Pot 6-Quart

1 Answer

The handle on my Rival Crockpot Model 38501-C has also broken off after one month (used twice). As with others I don't have a receipt or the original box. I thought this was a bargain when I saw it at COSTCO. Now I see why it is so cheap. I will never knowingly buy another Rival Product.

Your crockpot heat unit is overheating. Return it to the store you purchased it at or contact the manufacturer. My Rival did that and I contacted the company and they sent me a new one.

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.

Handle on crockpot lid broke off.can I replace it at store where purchased?

I have had the same problem. Spoke to rival customer service and they no longer sell replacement lids for model number SCE502. I've read to take the screw from the knob to a hardware store and then find a knob which will fit it.
Someone else suggested that if the knob is mostly intact, ask hardware store for araldite glue
