Question about Rival 38651-C 6-Quart

All Three Lights Blinking

When I plug the crockpot in, all three lights (Low, High and Keep Warm" are blinking, and I can't set the crockpot to cook. I have unplugged and plugged back in and have tried again over several hours to the same results. There is nothing in the owner's manual about this, but perhaps others have encountered this problem as well.

    Rival crockpot refuses to accept input from the touch controls on the face of the product. All 3 LEDs (lights) start blinking continuously when plugged in. Tried different power outlets, with same disappointing results. This is only the 2nd time I've tried to use the product, but it's been over 45 days (so I can't exchange the product at the retailer anymore).

    Our problem was similar. We started the crock pot in the morning with a roast inside of it...when we got home later that afternoon, all three lights were blinking and the roast was luke warm (at best).

  • duquguy Feb 01, 2009

    same thing as stated in everyone else's cases. it blinks around and around and will eventually stop on low, but soon after moves to high and back to warm. it sits for hours and nothing cooks. ill try the 3-button push as suggested above. i dont have an air compressor. i am becoming quite disappointed in rival products - any decent low-cost alternatives?

    I had this problem and it seems they all do this from the time you plug them in and goes away when you hit "select" (for mine) or "set time" for my older (and much better) 1 so try hitting the buttons for it to ready it's self.

We have their 6 quart Crock Pot. Same problem cited here!

We have found that, if you press both the (Low/High/Warm) AND the (Off) buttons at the same time, the controls will revert to the proper state. It has worked for us on several occasions so we trust it and have found no "adverse results"!

Hope this is a help to others.......

I took my blowdryer on high on the cool setting for about 5 minutes with the crockpot upside down and blew it in the vent. It dryed it out and worked fine after that!

    This work for me. I used my blow dryer on hot setting for five minutes blew into the vent. I was transferring marinated wings to the crock pot and some of the marinate must have drip into the control buttons. Thanks IslandGirl

I took my air compressor and blew the excess moisture out from the bottom of the base. (it got in their from a "damp cloth") within two minutes it was working just fine.

What is the answer? Rival must have modified their "Help" page because it no longer even mentions crockpots anymore. I have the same problem and would like to know the solution. Thanks!

The hair dryer worked for me as well. I think some liquid got into the circuit board and was causing some shorting in the circuit. Thanks!

I have this crockpot and I just used it three times and all three times dinner burned. I put it on low to cook all day and it cooks on high. I put it on warm and it still boils. I just shut it off to cool...


Add more liquid. If it is still getting too hot, check to see if it has a temperature knob on it somewhere, if not, you can release some of the heat by removing the lid slightly to let steam and heat release from it as it cooks

Just been given crock pot with 3 settings can you explain them no manual came with pot


It sure would help us to help you if you could get the model number off of the bottom of the unit. I can probably locate a user's manual with that information. Try this site to locate the manual: (my best guess without a model number)
http://safemanuals.com/314159.php?k=84c8d7db0922eceeab89e8e236b92e45&ID=2854106&q=CROCK%20POT%20SMART%20POT
(209k)
Find the little blue print that says enter security code and then you can dounload the manual.
The settings should be OFF High 4 High 6, Low 8 Low 10 and warm.

1. Place food in stoneware according to recipe.


2. Plug in Smart-Pot™ slow cooker. The Power light will begin to flash

indicating that the unit is plugged in, but not turned on.

HOW TO PROGRAM YOUR SMART-POT™ (CONT.)

3. Push the Cook Time button to scroll through the timed cooking

options. Push once and the 4 hour light will illuminate, twice and the

6 hour light will come on, etc. Select the time based on the length of

time indicated in the recipe. Two time options are usually given. The 4

and 6 hour settings are the HIGH temperature setting and may be

used when you want your food done quicker. The 8 and 10 hour

settings correspond to the LOW temperature setting and is used for all

day cooking. In addition your Smart-Pot™ can be set to the Warm

Setting by scrolling through the timed cooking options until the warm

light illuminates.


NOTE: The Warm setting is for keeping already hot food warm. Do not use

the warm setting to cook or reheat food.


4. When the cooking time is completed, the Smart-Pot™ slow cooker will

automatically shift to the Warm setting and the Warm light will come

on. NOTE: We do not recommend using the Warm setting for more

than 4 hours.


5. To turn the Smart-Pot™ off push the OFF button. Unplug unit from the

wall outlet.


6. For other recipes that give a range of times, select the time closest

to the setting on your Smart-Pot™. For instance a recipe calling for

cooking time of 7 to 9 hours on LOW, set your Smart-Pot™ to 8 hours.

NOTE: If power goes off then power light will blink and settings must be

reset. If cook time is changed before the cycle is complete the time will
reset to the new setting.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Hi the crockpot controls have erased the settings could you tell me what is hi...low or heat


Most crockpots have only two settings: low and high/heat. Use the high/heat setting for dishes that will cook in 2-4 hours. The low setting is for your "all day" cooking, typically 6-8 hours.

Hope this helps.

Slow cooker will only stay on warm. How do I put


This slow cooker has 3 settings LOW, HIGH, & WARM
When you plug the slow cooker in the display should show a "0". When you press the "COOK TIME" button, the display should go to 1 then 2 then 3 etc. each time the "COOK TIME" button is pressed. If 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the "HIGH" setting. If 7,8,9, or 10 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the "LOW" setting. To start the cooking cycle press the "ON/OFF" button. To interrupt the cooking cycle at any time, press the "ON/OFF" button. When the cooking cycle is complete, your slow cooker will automatically switch to the "WARM" setting. If the "ON/OFF" button is pressed when the the digital display shows "0", then the slow cooker will automatically start on the "WARM" setting.
If the "COOK TIME" button does not change the display numbers then unplug the slow cooker and hold both buttons down as you plug the slow cooker in. Keep the buttons pressed for a count of ten, then release them and the slow cooker should work correctly

The manual basically says... This slow cooker has 3 settings LOW, HIGH, and WARM. W hen you plug the slow cooker in the display shows "0". When you press the "COOK TIME" button, the display should go from 0 to 1 to 2 to 3 etc. each time the "COOK TIME" button is pressed. If 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the HIGH setting. If 7,8,9,or 10 hours are selected, the slow cooker will operate on the LOW setting. To start the cooking cycle, press the "ON/OFF" button. To interrupt the cooking cycle at any tim, press the "ON?OFF" button. When the cooking cycle is complete, your slow cooker will automatically switch to the WARM setting. If the "ON/OFF" button is pressed when the digital display shows "0", then the slow cooker will automatically start on the WARM setting.
If the "COOK TIME" button does not change the display numbers, unplug the slow cooker. Hold down both buttons and plug the slow cooker in and keep them pressed down for a count of 10. Release the buttons and the slow cooker should work now.

Can't change temperature-stays on "warm"


Push the COOK TIME button, if the time changes then if you leave the number of hours between 1 and 6, and press the ON/OFF button, it will cook on high that many hours. If you leave the number between 7 and 10, and press the ON/OFF button, it will cook on low that many hours. If you leave the number at "0" then the slow cooker will cook on WARM. If the COOK TIME button does not work, unplug the slow cooker, hold both the ON/OFF button and the COOK TIME buttons down and plug it into a wall socket. After the lights flash a few times, release the buttons. the switches should work.
