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.

Plugged in wont go on. Fairly new. Maybe year old probably from bed bath and beyond. Help


Check for power at outlet. Then check for power at heating coil. If there and still not working the heating element is gone.

I have a betty g slow cooker model scf80. do i put water in the metal part before putting my crock in?


I just read the manual for the betty "g" scf80 and all it says is "The stoneware liner when inserted in your Betty "g" slow crock cooker fryer is surrounded by air. This air is heated to the desired cooking temperature when the control knob is set to one of the two settings indicated for slow crock cooking. This Method of heating produces a slow and even rise in temperature that prevents scorching, less chance of overcooking, minimum loss of nutrients, less shrinkage and boiling away of juices.". My wife says no you should not as well, as she does not on our new model crockpot.

West bend slow cooker model 84866 lost power cord, repl part on their site is 5.99 but 7.95 for shipping is ridiculous


I found this one on eBay but do not know if it will fit your machine. It is a little less expensive and is used. Replacement parts are always expensive but less than buying a whole new machine...much less it keeps it out of the landfills. http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-WEST-BEND-SLOW-SLO-COOKER-REPLACEMENT-CORD_W0QQitemZ320494123773QQcmdZViewItemQQptZSmall_Kitchen_Appliances_US?hash=item4a9ef03afd

I have a mirro matic pressure canner model 0406 with a jiggler pressure gauge. how do you know when pressure is reached and how to maintain that pressure for correct time?


I too have a Mirro 0406 that my mother gave me some 25 years ago. I LOVE it and use it every year! Fortunately, she gave me the manual along with the canner. It states"When correct pressure is reached, control will jiggle and sputter. To reach the first jiggle in a small cooker may take less than 5 min, or less than 10 min, when canning. Large canner may take 45 to 60 minutes for the first jiggle when canning a full load. Count time from first jiggle and reduce heat so control jiggle about 1 to 4 times a minute for cooking (about 4 jiggles per minute when canning). Constant jiggling causes excessive loss of moisture: the occasional jiggle and a hissing sound indicates pressure is being maintained. (I just canned 14 quarts of green beans with my Mirro today 7/26/09 :) Congradulations on your Mirro canner, I hope you have many years of success with it. Good Luck, and Happy Canning!

SCC 658 Runs way too hot


I bought mine about two years ago. Had the same experience as you did ... it is not working right for a slow cooker. After my first disaster with it, tried making something again and insuring it was filled all the way. Burned all the food again. Now it just takes space in my cabinet. I bought another slow cooker that just the basic 3 position knob, no electronics.
