Rival 3-L Cool Touch Deep Fryer

Brand new & carefully unpacked from factory box. Put 1.5 liters of oil in it, tried to plug the main wire into my cooking area's electrical outlet. And made sure the basket unit was firmly plugged into its connector. But oil did not heat at all. Of course I had the unit's heat thermostat pushed up to near-highest heat-up. A clue to my problem was that the red power light never lit up on the front panel of fryer, neither did the green ready light. I tried several small pieces of fish to test, but the oil remained cold Help! Thanks. Jim

  • farmerjeeper Oct 04, 2008

    I have a rival deep fryer also and it worked for a little while. Then the other day it just quit wrking. no power light and no ready light. i checked to make sure that i had power and in fact i do. checked it at the end of the magnetic plug, good. checked it at the base where the heating element attaches and it is good. i took apart the heating element and i can't figure out where i am not getting power . seems to just stop at the control panel. i also noticed a slight bit of heat distortion to the plastic by the heating element.

    used for months now no power help


  • icanbme41 Oct 18, 2008

    first time I used it it worked great. Second time the ready light was on but oil was cold. What gives. Can I get my money back for this. If everyone is having the same problem should it be recalled.

  • amybaskervil Dec 21, 2008

    Same deal. have been using for less than a month. Used then minutes later nothing. The directions say to hit the reset button which is no where to be found. Very disappointed in this product! I hope that you intend to stand by it. I work for a popular retailer and won't recommend products that break down after 30 days of use.



    Sincerely,

    Amy Baskerville

I had almost the same problem with my new Rival Deep Fryer, which stopped working after 4 uses. There is supposedly a reset switch on the back of the control panel, but I can't find it.

It sounds to me like it could be one of two things.
Either the magnetic cord safety thingy came slightly undone (which happens to mine constantly) or you didn't turn the timer to "always on".
The thermostat itself does not turn the heating element on, you must turn the timer to always on to preheat the oil, then when it's heated you can set what time you want to fry for.

Hi, Its very possible that you have the wrong power to your fryer. I noticed that you said that you tried to plug it in. If it does not seem to fit or if you had to bend anything on the plug to make it fit you need to have an electrician check to make sure you have the correct power to the fryer. The wall outlet will have the power information printed on it. The manual will give you the power requirements. It the plug fits ok, check your breaker for that outlet. Good Luck. If this solution does not rate an (Almost There) Please do not rate.

Thank You,

New microwave stopped working after 15 seconds


Possibly the fuse / breaker is tripped, usually all outlets in one room share same breaker. Check breakers (or fuses) or try outlet in differnt room. If the outlet has power, (plugin a lamp to check) and the microwave still does not work, take it back to store for replacement or refund.

Tip

Replacing a Glass Cook Top


This advice is for Electric Ranges equipped with glass smooth tops. If it becomes necessary to replace the cook top due to wear or damage, here's some helpful tips on how to complete the repairs yourself. NOTE: Cook tops are NOT cheap. Prices vary between models, but most are in the $200 to $300 range. With added labor charges, this repair can cost over $600 from an appliance repair company.

WARRANTIES: Most warranties DO NOT cover cosmetics. That is, if your cooktop paint starts to wear off, most manufacturers will not replace it. Warranties also DO NOT cover accidents such as dropping something on the top and breaking it. Warranties DO cover blistering, warping and heat related breakage (if you are using the recommended cookware). This is why it is important to follow all the manufacturer's use and care instructions that come with your range. I know this does not include ALL manufacturers, but this is true with most.

This is a recommended two-person repair job. Please read through the instructions carefully before starting the repairs, and follow any safety recommendations.

1. UNPLUG the range before servicing. There are dangerous voltages still present even with burners turned off.
2. If the old cook top is broken, you will need to get rid of a much of the glass shards as you can and thoroughly vacuum the area around the oven box. Use extreme care when handling broken glass. Wear safety glasses and gloves.
3. There are a few screws located under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.
4.On some ranges, there is a disconnect plug for the surface element wiring harness. If you have this feature, Follow these steps:


  1. Unplug the cook top and leave the elements in place.
  2. Place the whole cook top assembly face-down on a soft surface (like some old towels, or a blanket).
  3. Remove the surface element assembly leaving all the elements wired together.
  4. Place the new cook top face down in the same manner and lay the surface element with wiring harness directly on to it and screw in place.
  5. Install the new cook top back on the range and you are DONE.
5. If the wiring harness does NOT unplug, follow these steps:

  1. There are a series of screws holding the element assemblies in place. Leave these assemblies wired together for ease of replacing. It is recommended that a second person holds the assemblies in place to support the wires until all the screws have been removed.
  2. Lay the intact element assembly, with wires still connected, on top of the oven box. Handle the surface elements with care. They are very fragile. Care also must be taken not to handle the element coils or ceramic material. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure.
  3. If you have to remove the elements, individually, make sure you write down how the wires were connected to ensure you reconnect them in the right order. Make sure you also take note of the numbering scheme on the element and make sure you place the mounting brackets in the same holes that they came out of. Use care when screwing into the new cook top. CAUTION: The screw holes are usually painted and a little force may be required to thread the screws. Do not apply too much pressure on the glass, or you can damage it.
  4. Prop the new cook top in place and install the surface element assembly from underneath. A helpful hint: Use some duct tape to hold the assembly until you have screwed it back into place. Don't forget to remove the duct tape when completed.
  5. Lower the new cook top into place and secure with screws.

    Good luck and I hope this helps.

I dont understand the digram im tring to hook a plug outlet to plug the the timmerin to the wall and out from the timmer i would like to put a outlet to be albe to plug in my lights


You posted under T102 timer.
This timer is 240Volts, and you can't hook this to ordinary outlet.

Look at inside of timer door to see brand and model number, and then add a comment.
Once I know model number of your timer, I can help you with wiring.

If you have T101 timer:
1) Your power outlet has two prong openings: 1 is wide and 1 is narrow.
2) Black Hot wire from narrow prong connects to Terminal 1
3) White Neutral wire from wide prong connects to Terminal A

4) Black wire going to new outlet connects to Terminal 2, and also connects to brass screw on new outlet.
5) White wire going to new outlet connects to Terminal A, along with other white wire, and also connects to silver screw on new outlet.
6) Bare ground wire connects to green screws.

7) This is code wiring. Black is for Hot and White is for Neutral.
Hot wires connect to brass screw on outlet. White to silver screw on outlet.
Narrow prong on outlet is Hot; Wide prong on outlet is Neutral.

This is a brand new range and the elements do not get red. Uncovered water will not boil and covered water takes nearly an hour on high. The oven does not get hot enough either. I just moved into this...


Ranges/Ovens use 220-240 Volts of power instead of 110-120 for most appliances. This is because you are converting electricity to heat. And in that process, you waste a lot! Resistance is what causes the heat to build, the more resistance to the flow of electricity, the more heat is generated. I am thinking that you are not receiving the correct wattage and or amperage to this appliance. Could be a bad cord, a bad connection inside the stove, or only a small amount of voltage coming to the plug. You would need an electrician to determine if you have 220-240 volts and at least 40 amps at the outlet where the stove plugs into. Volts are the flow of electricity, and Amps are the strength, or pressure. Without the both, you have very dim lights, slow running electric motors, and inoperable appliances. If there is indeed 220-240 Volts and 30-40 Amps at the outlet where the stove plugs in, then there are problems with the wiring inside the stove, or the elements themselves. Possibly, but unlikely, it could be the control panel, but you state it's fairly new. Hmmmm, sounds like low voltage, low amperage, and time to investigate both the outlet and the stove. You need an electrician, or someone really familar with electrical. This is important. This is not a mild shock, and a tingle up the arm, if they don't know what they are about, the amperage and voltage could be deadly. Not for the untrained. Have them check the outlet for the stove, and then the stove itself. Simple checks, and you should find it very easily. And, if the outlet checks out okay, then I would return the stove to the seller, and demand a replacement, since you say it's NEW. It's gotta warranty. Let the store take care of it's problem. You got cooking to do! Hope this helps. And PLEASE, Be SAFE. Don't attempt to check this outlet if you are not qualified and expierenced with electrical matters. It can be deadly, and permanent. Like going from holding your garden hose and washing your car, to trying to control a 2" fire hose from a fire truck pushing 600 gallons of water a minute. Thats just an example, but the theory is similar. Lots more volume and lots more pressure! Only this pressure and volume can ruin the rest of your life. Be Safe. Be Aware. And Happy Cooking Soon!

No factory wire connected to the neutral terminal


it might have something to do with the new N.E.C. that new dryers need to have a 4 wire cord installed on them instead of the old 3 wire since the code change some areas require 2 hot leads/1 neutral lead/and 1 safety ground lead, before this change as long as the feeder came directly from the main panel a 3 wire cord was acceptable,check with your appl dealer,they may omit this until you wire it to protect their liability

No power when I plug into outlet

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You may have 3 problems that I can see. You may have a bad electrical outlet, but I doubt it, the bad cordwinder cord or a short in the cordwinder itself, or a connection came loose in the motor section. If you need further assistance then contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or contact the Electrolux factory listed below. . So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
