SOURCE: broke plastic handle on fry cooker.

If you still have your manual to this unit I bet the manufacturer has a website that you can order from. If you don't have your manual then you can google the manufacturer for their website and order a new one there. I always keep my maunals for this reason. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: I need to put the top vent back together

Fix #1
These are usually riveted on. If you can find a small enough aluminum pop rivet (most lids are aluminum), you could pin it back together with that. The tricky part is ensuring that the rivet allows the vent to rotate between the opened and closed positions. I suggest cutting out two pieces of non-corrugated cardboard from a cereal box and punching out a hole in each the same diameter as the rivet. Use one on each side of the lid for a washer for the rivet. Include an aluminum washer for the tail end of the rivet. Your parts stack from the inside of the lid should be rivet (head end), cardboard washer, vent piece, lid, cardboard washer, metal washer. The pop rivet will be compressed against the metal washer on the outside when you operate the riveting tool. I suggest having the head on the inside of the lid because it will be easier to clean.

After you compress the rivet, tear the cardboard washers out. The vent should now pivot correctly.

Fix # 2
Use a 2-56 x 1/4 stainless steel screw (or similar metric size) and two stainless steel nuts. Assemble the vent to the lid using the screw and one of the nuts. Tighten the nut only until it starts to drag on the vent, then back it off slightly. Next, put the other nut on. Hold the first nut in place and tighten the second nut down onto it to lock it in place on the screw. The vent should still turn freely, but the nuts won't come off without tools if you did it properly.

Do not use plated or plain steel hardware. These will contaminate your food.

I need a leg for a Pot-Pourri electric 5 qt pot.


This leg is interchangeable with the Farberware electric skillet legs. I have a Farberware electric skillet in my eBay store that I'm selling for parts (I have lots of small appliance parts for sale). I could just send you the one leg if you want.

Persistently loose handle on a 20+yr old 9' fry pan


What has happened is the threaded hole the screw goes into had 'stripped out'. The best option is to fill the threaded hole with epoxy, and put the screw back in, tightening it well and letting the epoxy cure. The only alternative is to thread the hole to a larger size, and use a larger screw.

Rival Electric Skillet S16G


Hi, Your skillet is either defective or someone has left it on high with nothing in it. Either way, if it is still under warrenty, I would try and return it. As there is some debate about the toxicity of teflon, I would be very careful about using this unit any further.

If you are going to keep the skillet, try using steel wool to remove the loose teflon, maybe even sanding it all off if you want, then polish with fine steel wool and use the skillet as a regular uncoated electric fry pan.

Hope this helps, and if you found this response satisfactory, please vote. Thanks and good luck.
