Introduction

This replacement guide should only be needed if you are entirely sure that the power cord of your Aroma ARC-914SBD rice cooker is severely damaged and needs replacement. The power cord component lies at the very bottom of the device. Because of this, most all of the other components would need to be removed before any replacement of the power cord can be done. One of the most important tools needed after surfacing the power cord is a pair of pliers.

    • Begin by removing the condensation catcher to expose the screw. Pinch the condensation catcher from both sides and pull.

    • Remove the screw that was behind the condensation catcher using a Phillips head screwdriver, size PH2.

    • Remove the piece that was held by the screw by pulling out from the top, then pulling up. This will expose the hinges for the lid.

    • Locate the piece on the black plastic trim that is opposite from where the hinges were. Carefully, pry this piece from the bottom to get the tab from behind the stainless steel to in front of the steel as shown.

    • Next, you must remove the upper black trim which is connected to the inside liner with tabs. To do this you must hold the interior walls still, while rotating the trim so that the tabs line up with the slots. (tabs cannot be seen at this point, pics are to give you an idea of what you cannot see inside the device)

I have ARC 5000SB - wanted to use this in India under 220V. Tried removing to see if I can attach voltage transformer in control circuit .. I am pretty sure no issue to heater. But couldn’t open fully … some wires are attached to lid and not possible to open upper plastic rim to access bottom circuit… any suggestions

Yeah, we had a lot of trouble opening it, we had to pry off the plastic from the metal to get access to those wires. It will break a few plastic tabs that hold it firmly in the metal ring. These really as we found serve no function other than preventing you from opening the cooker. It just is a hassle to get open so that you can work on these wires.
