Re: will not turn off

There is a parts list on the wed , there should be a temp sensor inside that shuts the gas off when its finished cooking , it might be cheaper just to buy a new one ?

I need a replacement part for a Panasonic rice cooker SR-IHZC10N. The part I need is called Keep Warm Cap.

That is a hard piece to find; it actually collects water when you open the lid after rice is cooked and will not affect the keep warm function. Just make sure you pop a cloth under the missing cup before you open the lid. I have been working without this part for a few years now and it has not affected the rice cooking at all.

What would be the solution to fix the item if the error code the item is giving is "flame rod short"? the item will not turn on.

This probably means that the flame sensor is shorted to Ground. This sensor is usually a flame rod that is partway into the flame and detects a current flow through the unit. Unplug the braising pan.

Check the wire between the flame rod and the control unit. It may have damaged shielding or be touching another part of the braising pan. Replace the damaged wire. Next you need to check the flame rod is in the correct position. It will be mounted near the igniter or pilot light. Then the rod needs to be partway into the flame. Sometimes moisture gets into the unit; this can be dealt with by cleaning the flame rod with steel wool. (Remove it first.) Next check the rod for damage and replace it if there is damage.

You may want to have a professional check the unit. If the flame rod ceramic housing is damaged, that should be replaced by a professional. If the rod isn't correctly positioned, the braising pan could become hazardous.

I hope this helps.

Every time I cook rice in this rice cooker, the rice is burned & I have to throw it out. Help.

The Manual for the Rival RCS200 Rice Cooker can be found here:
Make sure you are following the directions for the correct amount of water to rice.
It could be that your unit is not switching from cooking to warming at completion of the cooking cycle. It should automaticaly turn to the Keep Warm Setting when it detects a temperature of 212 degrees F.
The manual advises that there are no servicable parts. If this is a new appliance I would recommend returning it to the point of purchase. If this is not possible try contacting Rival Customer Service to see if they are willing to assist with replacement or repair: See here:

Why does it burn my rice on the bottom.

that is common to have the bottom part burn when cooking rice.

what i did was change the ratio of 5 cups water = 4 cups rice.

when its near cooking, dont leave it for a long time since it will continoiusly heat up in the bottom part, i suggest to unplug it when the rice is already cooked.

hope this will help.

Rice burning at bottom of cooker

Your cooker, along with mine, cooks very hot. If it is new then you can take it back, but if you want to cook with it then you need to stir the rice often. About every 5 minutes should be good. As soon as it is done you need to remove it from the cooker. Let's see how that works.
