Rival 38651-C 6 Quart

We are having problems operating our sloww cooker. when we switch it on we select the desired time and heat setting, the lights then stay on for about a minute whilst the set time counts down....but then all the lights on the cooker turn off. after about 10 minutes the 3 lights all start flashing again for a short time then go off again should these lights be on all the time? should the time indicator remain visible all the time? have i set it up correctly? i have looked at the suggested websites from what i have read on this forum, but this problem is not addressed. many thanks for your help.

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."

There seems to be an ongoing question about this unit - many of them are reported as attaining high temperatures. There is no way (short of actually replacing the heating element) to alter the temperature of the unit.

Additionally, you state you are in Mexico - are you in Mexico City or somewhere else? You have to remember that "boiling" actually takes place at different temperatures based on air pressure, and at the pressure in the altitude of Mexico City (11 psia) water will boil at a mere 189 degrees, which is not far off of the 185 degree "target" that they are designed at to be sure that the cooker kills bacteria.
