I had the same problem with mine. Set your timer and then hold the start/stop button until the light in your timer starts flashing, it will then start warming up.

Della 12 Quart 1600-Watt Electric Pressure Cooker Multi-Functional Timer Slow Cook XL Part number: 048-GM-48261 Unable to get this cooker to slow cook.

it is possible that you have misunderstood the instructions
for a slow cooker you have low medium and high
press slow cook and on low and in 8 hours the food is cooked
I see from your statements that you expect the cooker to be set on slow cook but cook at a high temperature fast
if it says slow cook --9 hours and the temp is 125 degrees , have you waited 9 hours to see if it is cooked as the slow cooking process is by the gradual build up of heat in the container that is not expelled by radiation to the air
in a pressure cooker , that build up of heat also builds up pressure and so it cooks better
other solution--- if it is not right return it for a warranty refund or if out of warranty , junk it and get a different make

How do you set a timer?

That depends on the timer. Would you care to specify the make and model of the timer or of the device it's attached to?

I have an all-clad slow cooker that won't get any power

Oh thats a pitty these things happens all the time. These devices working under high temperatures, working once and then turn off until the end of time. Advice you to send it to service if you have guarantee. Else somebody with technical knowledge must check where the problem is by using a test light first then treatment begins.

The lights are flashing and won't stop. I tried to unplug and replug same results ...what should I do?

As far as I know, the flashing lights are an indicator that the slow cooker is on, but awaiting instructions. You need to put in a time and then a temperature and then it will stop.

I personally find the power button very disconcerting and keep having to stop myself pressing it once I've programmed the slow cooker, and accidentally switching the thing off.

My black crockpot has white stain all inside of it ive tried bleach, vinager, comet and plain old elbow grease, nothing works. Any ideas?

Does it appear that the enamel is worn away and the stain is embedded into the underlying ceramic?

If not, here's a crazy thought for a solution that just might work: Oxiclean. It's safe to put in your dishwasher, and it certainly does a stellar job of getting stains out of practically anything. It works best in warm to hot (but not boiling water), so a scoop in a crock pot full of water set to low for an hour or two may just do the trick. If not, I doubt anything will. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly after cleaning. If you've used Oxiclean before, you know how slick the residue can be.

Hope this helps!

Is there a way to set high with more than 6 hours ? I need to set mine for 20 hours in high.

Not unless there is a delay setting on the machine. You could get a timer plug to put into the wall socket. The type you use to ste lights to come on and off when away from home.
