    Guru,

    Thanks for the tip. So I opened the front panel and saw water around the cook button. I kept blowing hot air from hair dryer for 10 minutes.

    Whew, it started working.

    Thanks once again

In the top cover of your rice cooker there is a sensor that controls the cooking circuit. Most of the t\ime what happens is the wire in the hinge area breaks due to the opening and closing of the lid. I even had to repair my own rice cooker by cutting away the damaged wire then soldering a longer new wire in BOTH wires. I also added shrink tubing over the 4 connections on 2 wires.

Rice cooker manual

Not sure which type of Tefal rice cooker you have received.
You may want to go to the Tefal website and pick the manual for the one that could be your model.

Though there is not much to it if you are cooking rice. Take the pot out and wash it as any metal utensil. Put as many cups of rice you want to cook in a separate bowl using the measure that would have come with it. Otherwise take a 150ml measure. Wash it the rice thoroughly with water and drop it into the pot. Fill water to the level of number of the cups you have put in. Wipe the pot dry from outside and place in the cooker jacket. Put lid on. Turn the power on and press the Cook button. Once rice is cooked it will switch to keep warm and leave it there for about 5 minutes before you use the cooked rice.

How much Rice and Water go in the Cooker

So you lost the instructions to your rice cooker and now you want to know how much rice and water you need in there…
He is what I have found out with using my cooker to prepare rice.

There is a cup that comes with your rice cooker that equals about 2/3 of a regular measuring cup...one of these or 2/3 cup for every cooked cup of rice that you want to end up with... Add as many 2/3 cup fulls of rice as the number of full cups or servings that you want to end up with. See my notes about washing the rice further down in this tip.

The water...


There are lines on most of the cookers with numbers that represent the number of cups you are cooking...fill with water to that line....
If you are not sure, just fill with water a bit over the top of the rice...the amount is not that critical as the cooker senses when the water is cooked off and then shuts down...so a bit more will only make the cooking time a bit longer... no biggee...


Also it is best to rinse your rice before you actually leave the water in the pot that you are going to cook with...


Remeber also, if you have a brown or wild rice setting that the cooking times are MUCH longer...like up to 90 minutes, so get it started in plenty of time or you will be eating rice for a snack before bed...


The best feature is that you just have to place the rice and water in the unit, press the button for the type of rice you are using and forget about it itll it goes through the cycle and shuts down, going into the hold warm mode....it is so easy!!


These things are really goof proof, and make great rice very easily...a little bit of experimentation and you will enjoy very much using your rice cooker.

Tefal 4 in 1 rice cooker - Cooking time won't go over 60min?

This is correct. It is a safety feature on these machines to keep it from being left too long, and causing a fire.

I have s Sanyo ECJ-S35S rice cooker does not heat up. When I press Start/Cook button it keep flashing and light does not stay on. Any idea what I can do?

A rice cooker that doesn't cook anymore usually requires a thermal cutoff replaced. They act like a fuse and look like a resister. Look underneath it is crimped to one of the leads but perhaps underneath some braided insulation. Purchase another cutoff at an electronics components store (not radioshack). If there is not a rating on it try 185 degrees celcius.

MY RD5081 RICE COOKER ONLY WILL JUST WARM RICE, WON'T COOK.

The preassure switch may be not working right.
It may be corroded, etc.
Unplug the unit and push it back several times, try to see if the spring is working, etc.

Digital oster 20 cup capacity rice cooker wont turn on

Rice cookers will only cook if you have enough water in it. If all the water has cooked out, then the cooker will turn off. Remember when you put your rice in the cooker, make sure you level it off. Then add twice as much water so that it will over cover the rice.

Cook/Warm switch sometimes not working

I just fixed our rice cooker with the same issue - turns on and warms, but won't stay in 'cook' when the lever is pushed down. My solution was: the pot that goes inside the rice cooker was dented on the bottom and was not pressing down on the mechanism at the bottom of the cooker. Once I flattened the bottom of the pot, it works!
