Question about Rival S16 Electric Skillet
Hate to write answer to my own problem, but after showing (its THAT SIMPLE folks!) the innards to my wife, showing her how contacts do not move close 'nuf together to touch until dialed to 300F, she said, why not put a block under lower stip to raise it. Was about to, when I noted top strip appears to be merely spring steel, and she was advocating propping up the thinner lower BI metalic one, which would have stopped it from flexing as it must as temp of pan changes. SO, we brainstormed it, used her little jewelry needle nose pliers and alternately bent top (spring) strip down and lower (bimetalic) strip upwards with knob set at "warm" until they were TOUCHING, but nevertheless would separate when knob turned fully to "OFF" Since this thermostat pilot light works whether hooked to a pan or NOT, we plugged it in (no danger, probe is not electrified in any way unless maybe handle is dipped in water and salt!) and saw that light goes "on" at warm, off at "off" and further, that when we set it at 200F and hold a lighter under the probe (it is just hollow metal, not a precision device, simply conducts heat to metal strip inside) it turned off properly at what we guess is pretty close to 200F. Will add an addendum "solution" comment when we return thermostat to friends pan tomorrow and cook something!! No electrical degree, just a wife who got tired of me not fixing her firends pan and started unscrewing things until I got aggravated nuf to do something w/ it. Happy New Year.
