Exclamation Help! I can't read the knob on my Rival crock-pot 5060.

Does anyone out there have a Rival crockpot model number 5060 with four settings; off, high, low, and warm? Over time my wife (who is out of town) has scrubbed the settings off of the knob, and I want to use the crockpot. Rival was no help ("We no longer produce that model.') and the cover of the manual (the only picture) does not show the settings. My kids picked a recipe, and I promised them I would cook it today.

Well this probably will not help you today, but you can put some water in the crock pot and turn it on to one of the on settings and use a thermometer to take the temp of the water. the do the same for the other settings. You should be able to determine high low and warm by doing that.

Usually, the lowest temp settings are on the left and the highest temp settings are on the right.

I do not think that is necessarily true Corey. Logically that would make sense, but I am pretty sure my Rival has high on the left and low on the right.

I just checked. Off is to the left, low at the top, then high to the right. Sorry.

5060

The real answer to the question here is that all Rival crock pots with the 4 position selector are as follows: All the way left is off, the next position is low, and then it is high, and the far right position is warm.

Welcome to DC. Hope you were able to use the crockpot and feed the kids what they wanted! Mine is the same--off, low, high, warm.

Interesting! He posted this four years ago and never came back, so I can only draw one conclusion. Apparently he was so flustered by the knob dilemma that he didn't feed his kids, they starved to death, and he has been in prison for their demise, which is why he never came back!

From what I just learned, I believe he is in a super-minimum security prison. He merely needs to turn the door knob. He has been having a little trouble figuring out which way to turn it though.
