Question about Rival SCE500 5-Quart Slow Cooker

1 Answer

Crock pot lid

I've only had my stoneware crock pot for 6 months. The handle broke off of the lid while it was in use this week. It seems the support piece around the screw broke into small bits. The pot is hard to open without the handle. Can this be repaired?

    Mine broke too and I tried to replace the whole lid even though I only need the handle and they are all sold out.

    The same thing happend to mine tonight! That plastic coating around the nut is obviously very weak. I don thave the receipt so hopefully they will still help me replace the lid. I just emailed them now. If it bounces I'll write via snail mail.

    I called the number because this happened to mine too! Guess what? It is $18.95 and it won't be in stock until JULY 8, 2008

    Are you kidding me? For a lid handle?

    I've been online looking for the part but you can only find entire lid for $10. I have the silver stainless and my knob broke off leaving some plastic around the bolt. I will try the email below on the holmes group

    We have the same handle breakage problem. Three of the Rival crockpots at our potlucks at church are missing handles. Meanwhile we steam-burn ourselves trying to open them. We just need the plastic handles.

    All those with the flimsy plastic Rival
    handles be assured that they will chip and break at some point, and Rival has no
    interest in replacing or repairing every crock pot lid they have sold in recent
    years. Do this, save the vinyl washer and toss the rest. Buy a plastic set of
    closet pole mounts, a stainless bolt just smaller than the hole in the lid and a
    stainless lock nut all for less than $2. Mount the hollow side down, it looks
    fine and functions like the handle that should have been there when you bought
    it ..

    lid is screwed into the handle/ Where screw fits, it now just rotated and lid will not stay on

If still under warranty then e-mail to: [email protected] and ask for details If you fancy a fix it yourself solution, if you have all the broken bits then araldite glue or similar (ask your local hardware store) should be fine. check this site for more info on warranty/repair etc http://www.crockpot.com/searchresults.aspx# or this site for any other problems: http://www.rivalproducts.com/ Rival c/o JCS/THG, LLC 13120 Jurupa Avenue Fontana, CA 92337 Telephone: 1-800-323-9519 hope this helps :)

Missing stoneware liner for Rival Model 3960

I have a Tricity TSC09 6 litre Slow Cooker and I just love it . I smashed the lid and was so gutted I tried for hours online to find a replacement lid with no luck. I went shopping and bought a very cheap 6 to 7 Quart or 6 to 6.5 litre Slow cooker / Crock pot of the same shape the removable pot and lid fit. I bought a cookworks, signature, 24 euro 6.5 litre oval dog standard slow cooker and now I also have a removable pot replacement as well just in case I smash that too. Try buying a very cheap one of the same size and shape even a pot and lid a little bigger than mine still fit .

Rival Crock Pot LIner replacement

I have a round, forest green stoneware liner for a Rival crock pot. The liner has no divider. The liner has no chips or cracks. Sorry but I cannot remember to which model number this stoneware liner fit; but I can tell you that the Rival crock pot I had was either a 5 to 6 quart and it fit a plastic lid.
