Question about GE 106661 4.5-Quart
Just called the number (found on the web) for the Wal Mart Model 106661 of this and they are sending me a form to replace the base (with the heating element in it). Also have the same problem with the lid handle. Asked them about getting a new handle and they said I could order an entire new lid. A ceramic cabinet knob with the SS screw and washers sounds like a better solution then buying a new lid. Info date 1/21/08

The plastic handle on the lid over time has cracked and broken off. I called the 800 number on the bottom of the crockpot to inquire about a part/replacement. The rep informed me the based was under a recall and would send a self addressed mailer to return to them the electrical plug for the cooker. Upon receipt of the plug, GE/Walmart will resend a replacement base, I keep the ceramic bowl, and a new lid will be sent probably under separate cover. The experience was effortless and took less than 10 minutes on the phone. The prepaid mailer should arrive within 14 days and the replacement part from that time 14-21 days. Have your model and serial number ready for the representative.

My dad took a look at my slow cooker and then went to the store to check out a new one. You just need to pick up a cupboard or drawer knob, a stainless steel screw, and a couple of PLASTIC washers. Make sure that you get plastic washers as the other kinds will rust (per my previous experience trying to fix it).
