    I have gone through 3 of them. They just quit heating up after about the 5th or 6th time of use. Any suggestions?

As stated by a previous poster (rlorenson2) "There's a button on the base that is depressed by a nob on the pan.
Sometimes the button gets stuck and the safety feature kicks in and it won't heat up." My Rival Electric Skillet had been used maybe 6 times when it stopped turning on.
Based on rlorenson2's info, I pulled the base out and depressed the button 10 or so times, pushing it down and letting it pop back up). It did not appear to stick, and it was not dirty or sticky. But when I tried the skillet again, it worked fine!

When you set the pan down onto the base you have to make sure it's seated right. There's a button on the base that is depressed by a nob on the pan. Sometimes the button gets stuck and the safety feature kicks in and it won't heat up. Hope it helps.

I have the Rival electric skillet [S16RB]. The center is approximately 1/8 inch higher in the middle of the pan which lets all the greace run from the food i am frying. The conter on which it is sitting on...


Seems they are all the same and that must be the design as mine does the same thing.

If your product is less than 1 yr old and you have your receipt, (you can fax, email or snail mail it ) they will send you another. Or if you dont they "might" ask you to cut the cord off and send it in, only to wait a couple of months for your replacement.

You can contact them at http://www.rivalproducts.com/help.aspx?helpNav=3 or 800-323-9515

I find that in viewing this site that the listed " solution" is not a solution at all! This skillet has a defective design and coating and should be recalled!
