Re: Need Electric Cord OTC 3Temperature Control Probe

This is quite a comprehensive list of small appliance part suppliers. I recommend you go to this site, once it opens in your web browser, press "Ctrl f" which will open a little word search window. Type in "rival" in the space and click "next". Each time you press next "rival" will be highlighted in the next company that sells their parts. You should then be able to find the web-site for that company by scrolling down a bit further.

Happy Hunting.

What is your name who just responded to my question re: the Arist Craft power cord for my skillet?

West Bend Electric Skillet ' eBay great deals on eBay for West Bend Electric Skillet in Electric Skillets. Shop with ... NEW West Bend WB1 Heat Control Sensa-Temp Power Cord Plug Probe ...
From a appliance repair shop
from e-bay
Usually the manufacturer's owners manual has a part list with phone numbers and part numbers available for replacement.
If the correct part is not available, you could buy a similar sized gauge extension cord to wire in place by taking the appliance apart and securing properly.
Last but not least and certainly not recomended would be to wire in that extension cord with wire nuts and then electrical tape together. Good luck!

Hoover electric fry pan cord JPR 1104. E-mail you have one or do you put me on a list? Thank you.

I stumbled on this website by accident when I was trying to find a heat control for my Hoover fry pans. I own three. One is a model 8611 Fondue/Minnie Fry pan. It uses a "UniProbe" JPR 904. The control is rated 1650 watts, the pan is rated 800 watts. Your 8600 is a larger full sized pan. I do not own one of these pans to check the wattage. Read the wattage on the back of your old control as well as the bottom center of the pan itself. My research has not turned up any replacement for this part design. I never saw a competitor use this Uniprobe. I own a B3039 Broiler Lid full sized fry pan (Vintage about 1975). The pan is rated at 1200 watts with the control rated at 1500 watts. Yours is most likely a similar rating. The control is a no. 9906 or a78T. Neither, the UniProbe or the newer type is available from Hoover. The UniProbe was used in the 1960's and early 70's. It had three female connections. The outer two bring the wall current to the imbedded heating element in the pan. The center connection transfers heat from the pan to the temperature control and causes it to go on and off making it automatic. The later type control has the two outer female connections and brings in the power. The center connection was changed to the common male probe and transfers heat to the control to make it automatic. After a serious hunt for replacements I located the Presto control 0690005 rated at 1500 watts (just like the Hoover). Presto says their parts only work with Presto appliances. It works with Hoover for me, so I am happy. I bought the Presto griddle to test the probe compatibility and obtain the needed probe. I did find a company (by doing a "Bing" search) that claims they can bore the pan to accept the later type, probe ( Their approach sounds promising but if you decide to try this approach, do your own research of this company. If I understand your question correctly: I am not a parts dealer. I found a part that is serviceable for this long out of production "GEM" from Hoover. I am giving owners of these pans a way to continue using their pan as I did with mine. The downside seems to be that my simple fix for one style cord won't work for you. However, those that have one of the later models can continue to enjoy the uniqueness of these fine frying pans by trying the Presto control. CAUTION: Do not just start trying other parts to replace a missing part. It might be a dangerous experiment. Hope this clears up any misunderstandings. (As a side note: The main reason these controls fail is rough use of the cord going into the control itself. Too much pressure where the cord enters the control and the fine strands of wire will eventually break causing no electricity to get to the appliance. This will happen with any toaster or coffee maker or lamp cord or electric drill etc. These may be able to be repaired but it is not easy and is very time consuming.

I need a electric cord for rival skilet model #S160

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is an exact replacement temperature control/electric cord is not available. The good news, however, is there are several different "generic" temperature control/electric cords out there that will work on your S160. I am including a link where you will be able to find a replacement that will work with your skillet. I'm sorry but that's the best I can do for you right now...I just hope this helps you. Here is the link:

The Sunbeam probe pictured works well with Rival skillets.

Good Luck!
