Question about GE 106851 6-Quart
I need to find a replacement lid for my G.E. slow cooker. I broke the old on some how and need my slow cooker. This is the best one I have ever used. Please help.
FYI, the recall is not for the 169143 model:
"The recalled slow cookers include the 4.5-Quart Oval and 6-Quart Double Dish models sold under the General Electric (GE) brand name. The model name is printed on the front of the units. The 4.5-quart unit has model number 106661 and the 6-quart unit has model number 106851. Both models have series codes A through D, which are printed on the bottom along with the model number. The base of the slow cookers is white with an olive or honeysuckle graphic."
I too, have the 169143 model. In fact, I just received it for Christmas. I loaned it out and the glass lid broke. I just got off the phone with the division of GE that handles the Walmart products (these slow cookers were made specifically for Walmart), and unfortunately, we are out of luck. You cannot get replacement parts (including lids) for the slow cookers made exclusively for Walmart. The only option is to buy a whole new slow cooker. Grrrr! So much for a 3-month old slow cooker that is now useless. If it was any other shape than rectangle I would just retrofit with a different brand lid, but those rectangular ones are near impossible to find.

I was given the slow cooker model #169143 as a gift. I love it but I broke my lid. I have called the Wal-Mart line #877-207-0923 and it seems that we are out of luck. Not only is there NO replacement lid available, but they will not replace the cooker because of a broken glass part. It seems that there are a lot of people with this same problem. I shop at Wal Mart alot and I'd like to know that if I buy something in the futer, that I wont have this same problem. So, I asked the lady that I spoke to if there was a way to get a comment to the people who might be able to solve this problem in the future and she said that there was. I left a message with her to tell them that until this type of problem is solved, that I wont be buying ANY of this of items from their store again. I know that they may not care if I don't buy from them in the future, but if we all call and leave the same type of message, then MAYBE they will do something about it. PLEASE call! Also keep in mind that the person in customer service is NOT to blame, so please don't take out your anger on them. Be pleasant and polite!!!! Thank You!

My son just dropped my slow cooker insert and broke it. I now have a base and lid for GE Model 168945 6qt slow cooker which you can't order replacement parts for. The base has a stain on the inside which won't come off, but still works well. If anyone is interested in the base or lid, please let me know.

There is a product recall on your slow cooker from 1/05 at walmart. maybe you can get a replacement (the whole thing!!) hope this helps. would you have the recipe book from when you purchased your slow cooker? i am looking for the bbq recipe that is something like louisianna bbq or caribean jerk or something along those lines?

GE said that Wal-Mart honors a 2 year warranty on the Slow Cooker. All you have to do is return it to Wal-Mart (you don't have to take broken lid) and they will replace the entire unit. I'm going to try it tonight and I will let you know. Dealing with Wal-Mart customer service should be an interesting experience.

I have the same problem with TWO crockpots. One of them is a large one that belonged to my grandmother (now deceased). I am not about to throw it away because still cooks just fine. I now cover my crockpots with heavy duty aluminum foil and keep on cooking. Hope this helps.
