Please don't throw it away. This should NOT end up in a landfill.
DO check your city's recycling programs and get rid of it that way.
DO buy a nice new shiny slow cooker. Loads of them on Amazon with helpful reviews. Good luck!

I removed the nut from the bottom of my rival crock pot model 3100/2. How do I get it back on?


If you cannot get it back on, take the nut to Home Depot for a new on. Maybe the nut is stripped.

Good and bad complaints.


Generally, they are all supposed to be good. It all depends on how we use them. You have undoubtedly been careful with your crock pot to have had it serve you for 30 years! Unfortunately, not all consumers are as careful as you.

Yes, there are instance when a particular line or batch may be faulty due to some manufacturing defects, but these show up immediately, and can always be replaced under warranty.

Don't go by complaints, etc you see on the net. These are the exceptions rather than the rule. That is the nature of ALL electronic/electrical goods - they are bound to fail at some time or the other. (That why we have sites like Fixya!) :) The complaints that you see are exactly that - complaints from a few people who either happened to get a defective product, or haven't used it carefully. The majority, however, are happy with their products :)

Hope that helped!

I see no reason why you cant put the crock in the oven. I recommend you keep the temperature under 375 degrees or so.

Yes, it's not unusual for the outside to be too hot to touch. A slow cooker won't get as hot as a bare burner on the stove, but it still gets hot enough to cook meat. The outside has a bit of insulation, but it still may get hot enough to cause pain, melt a bread bag, etc. Be sure and place it where no one will accidentally touch it.

31/2 Quart older model crock pot


I just recently got a crock Pot # 3100 in the almond color that someone had left at work many years ago and never picked up. They were going to throw it out. All 3 of the little plastic feet were broken off. I went to a local thrift store and found the same crock pot without the stoneware liner. The case was in perfect shape and still had all 3 plastic feet attached. I paid $2.00 for it and just recycled the old one that I had. I see these at thrift stores pretty frequently and have even seen the lids (glass and plastic) by themselves. If you are looking for replacement parts, Rival does not carry many parts for these older Crock Pots and your local thrift store is an excellent source.

Outside of Crock Pot Extremely Hot....Is This Normal?


This is not normal. Thermal switch is not functioning correctly. Wiring inside not easy to replace. Crock pots cause a lot of home fires. Cheaper to simply buy a new one.
