Question about Rival S12T Electric Skillet

1 Answer

Electric plug turns off

Sometimes when I use the skillet, it just turns off (I know this because the orange light is off). I thought that it was the electric socket, but I tried the plug in another socket, with the same results. I will turn the knob up just a little bit, and the light will come on for a for about 30 seconds, and then turn off again. I will repeat this "game" until I hit the maximum temperature. Then, I have to wait a few minutes, plug it in again, and go through the same procedures until dinner is cooked.

I hear different clicking noises, like it is trying to heat up throughout this process. Can I just fix it, or should I just get a new one? I only got it as a gift back in August 2007. Thanks for your help!

That is your thermostat going on and off. There is nothing wrong with your skillet. When it reaches the desired temp, the light goes off. When the temp drops, it will come back on.

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.

Rival model s12gn skillet


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.
