Question about Rival CF153-WM Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Electrical Shortage By Golly,The machine started smoking and shorted out. I'm scared to plug it back into a wall. The customer service at Walmart informed me that they could not except the return product there, even though I brought it from them in May 07. What's the real deal? I still have warranty and receipt. What do you recommend?

I need a Model Pl 1215 plug please. I been looking all over and I cannot find one.

Not sure how much help my thoughts will be, I don't know what one of those plugs looks like. However I will say many plugs are somewhat universal. Looking at some Presto deep fryers on line it looked like some used a standard two round prong plug at the appliance end. If that's the case those are universal, found on many things such as cordless shavers and electronics.
I checked and they don't have any deep fryers by that model number. If it's a Presto then those cords are very common, just look in your parent's and friend's kitchen drawers and junk drawers. If you don't find one that will work check the flea markets and yard sales. If that doesn't work put a wanted ad on craigslist or something.
I am pretty sure you should be able to find one easily, the cords last longer than the appliances do.

Tefal actifry lids keeps lifting during cooking n bangs back down. Scared in case it will explods. Out of warranty.

If you fryer is from branded company, they definitely take safety care. On safety side,tell about your problem to customer service center by email or call or show it to your vendor.

My deep fryer is working but once or twice a day the door of the fryer will suddenly open with a thud! Scaring all in the kitchen. If we keep the door open then the problem goes away to some extent. Lot of...

It is advisable to get a qualified technician to clean the burners, pilot, and insure there is proper gas pressure and volume to the unit. Without verified gas pressure and volume, even with clean burners the problem may recur.

Fryer made loud bang!!!!

If you had the fryer covered when you were using it, condensation may have formed and droplets of water hitting the oil would cause spattering. Does your fryer recommend using the cover when in use?

Need a electric chord

If you are lucky, they will be using a Euro plug, that is generic to a lot of appliances, and available in lots of electrical retail stores.

If not though, I would first try the store where you bought it from, and second try an applaince repair centre.
if it is a wired plug, then it should be possible to use a standard plug with a new length of 2.5mm 3 core flex. I expect it will have a moulded plug - so you will need a new plug - don't attempt to re-use it.

Take a very close look at the unit for the ELECTRICAL RATINGS! It will tell you the voltage, current/wattage, and how many phases you require! My suggestion is to have a qualified electricial look at it to tell you if you can't find any electrical ratings tag.

A qualified electrician is able to trace the wiring into the units circuits and determine its power requirements if no electrical rating tag can be found. Be inventive looking for this tag, inside doors and even service panels, I assure you it is hidden there somewhere!

Our RIVAL Deep Fryer CZF725 heating element does not work. We purhased this fryer at a local WalMart store and only used it three times. WalMart told us to contact the manufacturer directly.

It didn't take me very much time or effort to type into a google search "how to contact rival deep fryer" and the results came back with this:

Rival Consumer Service
PO BOX 3900
Peoria, IL 61614

Telephone: 1-800-323-9519

Our Rival deep fryer stopped working one night...just after christmas, I figured with the holidays I would wait and contact them after... I had forgotten to until today when my husband reminded me to... So after phoning them, and speaking with Alex, I now have a free replacement cord being sent, and the deep fryer was a few days over the warranty...
