Great minds and all, Zagut!

I just can't see throwing away a perfectly good appliance.

Gotcha. Great idea. It wouldn't have occurred to me.

Dawgluver, "Great minds" and "Zagut" do not belong in the same sentence.

Never have and never will.

My collection of half broken junk will prove that I agree with you.

At times I see my home as the last stop for way too many things.

The heating coils for the cooker are on the bottom of the device. Any parts that fell to the bottom inside the cooker could cause a problem with the heating coils.

Nothing will probably explode or catch on fire with a screw loose. I wouldn't mind taking the whole thing apart, but I sort of like to do that.

I am about appliance savvy as the family dog Teddy. Saying this, (and I am sure there are those who will jump down my throat) why not get a pair of vice grips, grab the screw and try to unscrew it. At least it won't fall into the inside. At the worst, if it can't be unscrewed, then yank it out like you would a bad tooth.

Not a bad idea, Addie. But I suspect the pointy end of the screw is sticking out, and the screw head is inside, so it would take some major yanking to get it out, and Munky would end up with a much bigger hole in her CP.

Well, that shoots that idea down. But I don't give up that easily. Aren't the electrical coils at the bottom covered so that when you take out the pot itself, they are not exposed? If so what if the danger of just letting the screw fall down inside?
