You are an *******....Just to be blunt....This person is asking how to cook the rice to water ration in the rival 6 cup rice cooker and that ratio is like other ways to cook rice, which you are completely wrong about maybe you should take some lessons on how to cook. Its 1 PART RICE TO 2 PARTS WATER....NOT EQUAL, and in the cooker its 2 cups rice and 4 cups water makes a perfect pot!

I have had THREE different cookers over the past year and ALL THREE have done the exact same thing. It has to be electrical and I suspect it blows an internal fuse...then it is no longer working. This is awful. I would never recomend it to anyone.

There is a heat sensitive switch attached to the inner pot. It is very small, it turns the heat off when the pot reaches boiling temp. If it is open, replace it. They come in different temps, so get the right one. This one is supposed to open at 212 degrees, f. You will find a similar one in a Mr. Coffee, it switches the pot from boil to keep.
