This is probably a friction hinge. The slow closing feature is a result of friction within the hinge. So it sounds like the hinge has worn to the point of the friction being reduced. Another possibility is that some kind of lubricating fluid entered the hinge. If so, perhaps it will regain friction with time. Most likely the seat needs to be replaced.
You can order new lid w/ hinge for $15 from manufacturer (http://www.crock-pot.com/customerservice.aspx) or I have been told they'll send it for free if you contact them (https://secure.crock-pot.com/contactus.aspx) and say the hinge broke. Might depend how old your unit is.
The lid hinge is only a convenience thing. Most crock pots don't have hinges. So, unless the hinge affects the functioning of the pot, It is really not rendered useless. If you don't want to buy a new one or can't find a replacement hinge then simply clean up the break so it doesn't interfere with place the cover on. Good luck
Don't know if I can, BUT here's try ... jiggle the cover and see if you can slip things back. It's possible you got it too far out of alignment and it won't go back. Try something of that nature. Maybe you were too enthusiastic when you opened it. Also check to make sure there's nothing in the way, or something wrong someplace else. What does your computer say? Any message.
I have a Canon, but it's fairly new and if yours has a hinge on it that slips back, make sure your cover is high enough with your left hand so that the hinge inside the printer swings freely and slip your right hand back against the hinge and gently push. Try that. I have a PixmaM320 or something similar to that number.
I'm trying to get an old HPDeskjet1120c to print. So far, no suggestions on line or manufacturer's suggestions have worked. Steady print light, reset light off, and cartridge (bottom light) light blinks. Oh well Hope the above suggestions work for you.
If you have your receipt and its less than 1 yr old, you can call RIval Products at 800-323-9519 and ask for the number to fax your receipt and they will send you a replacement.
But if its over 1yr old you can call and tell them how old your crock pot is and they "MIGHT" have you cut the cord and mail it in and send you another. If it wasn't used very much and they say there is nothing they can do about it, ask for a supervisor. And voice your disappointment in that model.
If nothing else, they might be able to guide you to purchase another hinge.
Try taking the other pin out as a sample and taking it to your local hardware store. They usually have a huge array of roll pins, screws, nails, etc., and probably someone in the store can help you match up something that would probably work well enough to secure the hinge and make it useful again. Also if there is a variety of items at the hardware that would work, try to chose the one that is made of stainless steel so that it won't rust or corrode. Additionally, if this solution works, the small piece would definitely be much less expensive than buying a brand-specific small replacement part.
