Question about Rival 3040-VG 4-Quart
Not completely sure if this is our model, but I think so. Regardless, since the first use it has cooked very hot and very quickly. The high setting is ridiculous, and even on low it boils and food is done in about four hours. Could there be a problem with the elements or the switch? Thanks!
If the boiling were caused by high altitude, then the food would take more, not less, time to cook. The low atmospheric pressure of the high altitude means that water boils at a lower temperature, so the food wont cook as fast.

Crock pots are not exact, they only have a "target" minimum temperature (to be sure they kill bacteria). It's possible you just have a relatively strong heating element.
Also, remember that the boiling point of liquids changes considerably with your altitude, so if you're in a mountainous region you may be seeing "boiling" at a lower temperature than you expect.
