Re: my smartpot shut it self off and wont turn turn back...
Try holding the reset button down, plugging it in, and then releasing it after maybe 5-10 sec.
if your familiar with computers.... try repeatedly pushing the reset button as you plug it in... kind of a total reset
other than that it sounds like a glitch.... how long have you had it.... Mmm, consider calling the company and explaining complete mechanical failure. Hey, you never know if you don't try. Happy Holidays... best of luck

<p>Your crockpot is
giving you an <b>error code EO1</b>. Now you need to know how to get
the code off of your crockpot so that you can use it.
<p>First, let me
explain what the code means. That code tells you that your
<b>temperature sensor</b> did not calibrate correctly. Do not worry,
this is usually just a temporary situation and the sensor can be
reset through a few very simple steps.<br />
<p>The first thing to
do is to unplug your unit from the electric socket. Leave it
unplugged for at least ten seconds.<br />
<p>Then plug it back
into the electrical outlet.<br />
<p>When you have it
plugged back in, hit the <b>POWER</b> button once and then within one
second hit the <b>COOK</b> button once.<br />
<p>Now the appliance
should be ready to use.<br />
<p>If you have the
problem again just repeat these steps to clear the error code.<br />
<p>This is how you
can easily <b>fix the EO1 error code.</b><br />
The problem is a Signal Switch Malfunction. It has to do with the power switch and the pressure switch from what I have been able to find out. Mine doesn't have a pressure problem it just goes to E4 once you set the time. I gave the switch a good smack and it has been working for a while. This is the second time and this worked both times now. I am sure the switch will have to be replaced at some time. From what I have seen this is a very common problem. There is one way to fix this problem, albeit not the best. I was able to bypass the E4 error by completely bypassing the electronics and wiring the heater coil to get power whenever the pressure cooker is plugged in. It was a very simple job, anyone with any electrical experience can do this. The only problem is that it is a safety concern as there is no way for the heater to turn off even if pressure is getting to be way too high. There may be a pressure relief valve in the lid but the heater coil won't shut off, so don't leave it unattended! But at least this way to you can still pressure cook.

I couldn't find the specific manual for this, but I did find some basic instructions on a personal review:
"Rival calls this a SmartPot and describes this unit as "programmable". All this really means is that you can program the slow cooker to cook either on "High" or "Low" for up to 20 hours, in 30 minute increments and then it will automatically switch to the "Keep Warm" setting and keep your meal warm for hours. You cannot program multiple steps, such as going from the "High" to the "Low" setting. The red, LCD clearly displays the remaining cook time. Simply plug in the slow cooker, and then push the clearly marked buttons (with a pleasant, audible tone) to move from "Low" to "High" to "Keep warm" settings. Then push the Timer Button to set the desired cook time." Hopefully, this helps answer your questions!
once the slow cooker reaches a temperature set point it shuts off. when the internal temperature drops the thermostat turns on again, otherwise even at a low heat, everything inside would boil away. Hence the term "slow cooker."
