SOURCE: Need replacement lid for Rival crock pot

OKAY...I'll help you figure this out

Rival doesn't even acknowledge that model number (3154) in their replacement parts. Makes me think we either have the wrong model # or the wrong manufacturer OR more likely we are missing a few of the prefix letters to the model number.

Please double check and make sure you are looking in the right place for's a pic on Rival's website on where to look on the crockpot:

If you are certain it's a Rival and the number is "3154" then call their customer support # at 1-800-323-9519.

If you discover the model number does have a few prefix letters, be sure to enter that on their search page (which is the same link I posted above.)

Not sure what the replacement part will cost but for $35 you can get a used 3154 with lid on ebay: here (that kinda proves there is such a model - so you may have to call Rival at the number listed above.

If this solves it for ya, please let me know by rating this answer. If not let me know. :-)

What temperature does the Ultrex slow cooker cook at on high or low?

Have you used it before or is it new? Slow cookers vary when it comes to cooking on low or high. If you never used it before, I suggest that you find a slow cooker recipe that cooks slow 10-12 hours and see how that works.

I have inherited a west bend slow cooker model 84624 and dont have a manuel for it. I am concerned with the 300 watt is this normal? Or is that very low? I dont know how long to cook in this or amounts...

  • 1 Use setting 1 (warm #1) only to warm rolls and muffins. At 140 degrees Fahrenheit, this setting should not be used for cooking.
  • 2 Use setting 2 (warm #2) to keep cooked foods warm until they're ready to be served.
  • 3 Use settings 3, 4 and 5 (low, medium high) for cooking. The setting you choose determines the length of time the food will cook. A typical meal with meat and vegetables needs 7 to 10 hours to cook at the low or #3 setting, 4 to 6 hours at the medium or #4 setting, and 2 to 3 hours at the high or #5 setting.

  • All West Bend slow cooker models eventually simmer at the boiling point, or 212 degrees. The setting simply determines how quickly the cooker will reach that temperature.

    300 watt is not a huge consumption of electricity, depending of course on, how often, how long and how high temperature.

    Do I put stting on HIGH or LOW when cooking a stew etc:

    It depends on how fast you want t ready to eat. Rival recommends low for 8-10 hours or high for 4 or 4 1/2 hours. Hope that helps you.

    I have a rival 3215 with no temp control. Is it a "low, high, or warm" temperature setting?

    There is one setting for this unit which is the same as low (200) degrees on those with high low

    Just been given crock pot with 3 settings can you explain them no manual came with pot

    It sure would help us to help you if you could get the model number off of the bottom of the unit. I can probably locate a user's manual with that information. Try this site to locate the manual: (my best guess without a model number)
    Find the little blue print that says enter security code and then you can dounload the manual.
    The settings should be OFF High 4 High 6, Low 8 Low 10 and warm.

    1. Place food in stoneware according to recipe.

    2. Plug in Smart-Pot™ slow cooker. The Power light will begin to flash

    indicating that the unit is plugged in, but not turned on.


    3. Push the Cook Time button to scroll through the timed cooking

    options. Push once and the 4 hour light will illuminate, twice and the

    6 hour light will come on, etc. Select the time based on the length of

    time indicated in the recipe. Two time options are usually given. The 4

    and 6 hour settings are the HIGH temperature setting and may be

    used when you want your food done quicker. The 8 and 10 hour

    settings correspond to the LOW temperature setting and is used for all

    day cooking. In addition your Smart-Pot™ can be set to the Warm

    Setting by scrolling through the timed cooking options until the warm

    light illuminates.

    NOTE: The Warm setting is for keeping already hot food warm. Do not use

    the warm setting to cook or reheat food.

    4. When the cooking time is completed, the Smart-Pot™ slow cooker will

    automatically shift to the Warm setting and the Warm light will come

    on. NOTE: We do not recommend using the Warm setting for more

    than 4 hours.

    5. To turn the Smart-Pot™ off push the OFF button. Unplug unit from the

    wall outlet.

    6. For other recipes that give a range of times, select the time closest

    to the setting on your Smart-Pot™. For instance a recipe calling for

    cooking time of 7 to 9 hours on LOW, set your Smart-Pot™ to 8 hours.

    NOTE: If power goes off then power light will blink and settings must be

    reset. If cook time is changed before the cycle is complete the time will
    reset to the new setting.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa,

    Tried to make lamb shanks with a cook time of 6 hours on high and 6 hours on low. All the liquid evapored and everything burned. Pot lid was bouncing up by steam during cooking. What's wrong

    It seem you may have cooked it too long... also one MUST keep an eye on the liquid level at least a few times during the cook. If you need this long a period it is suggested that you not use HIGH for all that time, try High for like 3 hours and the rest at simmer.

    My Rival Crock Pot seems to cook a lot faster than it should. When the receipe calls for it to be on low, I put it in low but it seems to cook the food too quickly. What am I doing wrong?

    Probably, nothing. About 6 years ago the standards on these were changed, to increase low to 200 degrees instead of 180, high to 300. Things that took 6 hours can now take 4. If you are using older recipes, or recipes perfected in older pots, they will always overcook. You can check this by putting water in, covering, and checking with an instant read thermometer after 1 hour. If it is 200, there is nothing wrong with you or the pot.

    I have another pot with a lid and the lid 'fits' my crockpot; my glass crock pot just broke and my heart broke along with it! The cooking pot's lid worked for the soup I made last week but you can't see into the pot; I like that about the crock pot. Try another lid, or you can try to buy a new/different one, like I'm trying to do! :)

    No manual for my old Crock Watcher by Proctor Silex

    The auto setting cooks on high for the first hour, then adjusts the setting to low for the remaining cooking time.
    Auto Shift allows the slow cooker to heat up to high and then internally shift down to low, so it gives more flexibility in cooking time. Example: A certain recipe may take 4 hours on high, 5-6 hours on Auto Shift and 7-8 hours on Low.
