Rival is now Crock-pot.com. Their parts page for your model shows no parts, but they list a toll-free number you can call. Try that and see if they have a different model lid or handle that will work.
When a friend's cooker lid needed a handle, I picked up a plain round wooden drawer pull at Home Depot, used a wood rasp to round the end of the knob a little to fit the curve of the lid, and put thin rubber washers from the plumbing aisle under the screw head and between the knob and lid so I wouldn't crack the glass when tightening the screw for a snug fit. Nearly two years now and it's still holding on. If you can't get an original replacement part, maybe you can roll your own.
If you know a woodworker, get him to turn a knob out of oak, then fasten it with a stainless steel screw and washer. I suggest threading the screw into the knob once before installing it onto the lid so you don't risk overtightening the screw and breaking the lid.
Just called the number (found on the web) for the Wal Mart Model 106661 of this and they are sending me a form to replace the base (with the heating element in it). Also have the same problem with the lid handle. Asked them about getting a new handle and they said I could order an entire new lid. A ceramic cabinet knob with the SS screw and washers sounds like a better solution then buying a new lid. Info date 1/21/08
My black handle broke off, too. I went to the hobby store and got a wood ball not too big and drilled a hole in it the same diameter as the screw that held in the original handle. Voila, I now have a wood ball knob handle on my crock pot lid. You just install it and cscrew it on just like you do a new knob on a kitchen cabinet.
