    I have been searching for a new handle as well although mine is white. I went to and found a replacement lid & handle but no handle for the lid. it was $10.00 plus S/H

    The handle of the lid cracked off of the Rival Slow Cooker. Sad thing, it is less than a year old and only been used only 2 times. Wonder if there is a malfunction? Where do I find a replacement?

    Looks like this is a issue with this product.

    Ours did the same thing.

    Googled crock pot knob, looks like they are round now.

    Not available from manufacturer though.

    We also have a 37601 with not much time on it that the lid handle broke where the screw secures it. No, Rival doesn't sell a lid handle, but they'll sell ya' a lid WITH a handle for $10. What a racket! I'm thinking of going to a hardware store and buying a wooden cabinet knob. Right now I've just put in a long metal screw with a lock washer and nut--but be careful of it getting hot, use a hand towel to pick it up.

    I have the same issue, handle broke off the screw holding it in place. Broke in several pieces. Rival wants $10.00 for a new, HOWEVER, none in stock, have to call back in 10 days. Makes you wonder if they are out of stock how often this happens.

    I filed a compliant on Consumer Affairs web site and sent Rival an email, will see what response I get.

    Same with me....

    i have the same problem, seems like a flaw in the product. I am canadian and the only site that has any in stock doesn't ship to canada. I am now just going to find a pot lid and steal the knob!

    Our cooker is maybe one year old but not used much. Noticed last night the lid handle is broken where held in place by the screw. This is a bad design flaw and should be replaced by the manufacture. I too will look at a hardware store and will not buy any more Rival products.

    Every single handle on the lid of my Crock Pot SCVC601 has broken. I loved it the first time I used it - that was the only time all the handles worked. They cracked/fell off during washing (by hand). I believe they could not handle the heat. Response from Sunbeam was to send me an entirely new crock pot - but with NONE of the features and worth 1/2 the $$.

    I'll never buy another Rival (Sunbeam) product again.

I need a lid and control knob for a Rival scv601. I can't find either on line and tried to call, but number given on crockpot wouldn't go through.

Where can I get a replacement lid hand for my Rival slow cooker model no scv655?

Rival is now 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.

Handle to my Rival slow cooker lid model #scve603 broke. not able

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.

Lid Knob

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

Repalcement handles for Rival slow cooker crock pot model scu600

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.
