Hoover electric fry pan cord JPR 1104. E-mail [email protected] you have one or do you put me on a list? Thank you.


I stumbled on this website by accident when I was trying to find a heat control for my Hoover fry pans. I own three. One is a model 8611 Fondue/Minnie Fry pan. It uses a "UniProbe" JPR 904. The control is rated 1650 watts, the pan is rated 800 watts. Your 8600 is a larger full sized pan. I do not own one of these pans to check the wattage. Read the wattage on the back of your old control as well as the bottom center of the pan itself. My research has not turned up any replacement for this part design. I never saw a competitor use this Uniprobe. I own a B3039 Broiler Lid full sized fry pan (Vintage about 1975). The pan is rated at 1200 watts with the control rated at 1500 watts. Yours is most likely a similar rating. The control is a no. 9906 or a78T. Neither, the UniProbe or the newer type is available from Hoover. The UniProbe was used in the 1960's and early 70's. It had three female connections. The outer two bring the wall current to the imbedded heating element in the pan. The center connection transfers heat from the pan to the temperature control and causes it to go on and off making it automatic. The later type control has the two outer female connections and brings in the power. The center connection was changed to the common male probe and transfers heat to the control to make it automatic. After a serious hunt for replacements I located the Presto control 0690005 rated at 1500 watts (just like the Hoover). Presto says their parts only work with Presto appliances. It works with Hoover for me, so I am happy. I bought the Presto griddle to test the probe compatibility and obtain the needed probe. I did find a company (by doing a "Bing" search) that claims they can bore the pan to accept the later type, probe (www.kieferappliance.com). Their approach sounds promising but if you decide to try this approach, do your own research of this company. If I understand your question correctly: I am not a parts dealer. I found a part that is serviceable for this long out of production "GEM" from Hoover. I am giving owners of these pans a way to continue using their pan as I did with mine. The downside seems to be that my simple fix for one style cord won't work for you. However, those that have one of the later models can continue to enjoy the uniqueness of these fine frying pans by trying the Presto control. CAUTION: Do not just start trying other parts to replace a missing part. It might be a dangerous experiment. Hope this clears up any misunderstandings. (As a side note: The main reason these controls fail is rough use of the cord going into the control itself. Too much pressure where the cord enters the control and the fine strands of wire will eventually break causing no electricity to get to the appliance. This will happen with any toaster or coffee maker or lamp cord or electric drill etc. These may be able to be repaired but it is not easy and is very time consuming.

I need a new "leg" for my society electric fry pan


You don't need anything unless the frying pan doesn't work because of the leg.
what you can do is just put an object in place of the leg it works out cheaper too

I'm looking for one skillet power control for Rena Ware fry electric pan Cat. 17530


Rena Ware Electric Skillets use the same control as West Bend WB-1 . The back of the Rena Ware Control does say WB-1. Mine is 1500 watt.
You can find the WB-1 eBay for various prices. A generic heat control will probably work as well if it is the same wattage. I have a Saladmaster control that also works for this skillet.1_26_2012_12_42_14_am.jpg

Nordic ware Belgiam Waffler maker


This is how I use the nordic ware...

1.Heat pan on medium heat on one side until temp gauge is in the middle. Dont turn pan at all when pre-heating
2. Open pan and coat bottom with a little butter.
3. Flip pan over and add butter to bottom side that has no butter.
4. Add batter quickly so butter doent burn. Add semi-thick batter in pan and only let batter run so there is about 1 inch of space left on the edge.(This space will fill with batter when you close the cover)
5. Temperature gauge should stay near the middle at all times.
6. Do not open the pan to check the batter waffle color or your crispy waffle will turn soft
7. Let waffle cook on first side until the steam that comes out from the side slows down to about half of the amount of steam that came out when battle was first put in. (Should be about 2 minutes)
8. Turn waffle pan over and DON’T open the pan.(you haven’t opened the pan once to look)

9. Let cook until steam reduces (Takes about 2 minutes)
10. Keep an eye on the temp gauge
11.Remember the first waffle always takes longer to cook than the second and third waffle.
12. If you have the urge to open the pan. Open the cover slowly. If it doesn’t open up easily then it is still rare and wait one minute to open. If you need to look, you should only open the pan after you turned it over. Once you open the pan, leave it open. If you close it the cripy top will turn soft.
13. Remember trial and error
