SOURCE: Outside of Crock Pot Extremely Hot....Is This Normal?

This is not normal. Thermal switch is not functioning correctly. Wiring inside not easy to replace. Crock pots cause a lot of home fires. Cheaper to simply buy a new one.

Yes, it's not unusual for the outside to be too hot to touch. A slow cooker won't get as hot as a bare burner on the stove, but it still gets hot enough to cook meat. The outside has a bit of insulation, but it still may get hot enough to cause pain, melt a bread bag, etc. Be sure and place it where no one will accidentally touch it.

Please don't throw it away. This should NOT end up in a landfill.
DO check your city's recycling programs and get rid of it that way.
DO buy a nice new shiny slow cooker. Loads of them on Amazon with helpful reviews. Good luck!
