Question about Crock Pots & Slow Cookers
My slow cooker that I got less than a year ago won't heat up. What can I do?
I suspect that a thermal fuse to protect against overheating has failed. Endless numbers of fairly new coffee makers fail for the same reason and these are failing at too low of a temperature due to sloppy Chinese manfacturers. These devices have been used for many decades without problems, failing only when the design temperature was reached but those available today may look the same outside but are junk and will fail whenever they feel like it. This fuse is normally spot-welded at both ends due to the temperatures to which they are subjected and are not replaceable; they can't be soldered in place as the solder would melt. We are at the mercy of Asians today for just about everything. A year ago, I had two coffee machines fail in a three day period and jsut took the refund instead of having a thrid one fail too.
