Question about Rival 5865-W 6.5-Quart Slow Cooker
When we plug in the pot it won't work. None of the buttons do anything, the pot doesnt heat up, and the lights just keep on blinking. We bought the pot a while back but never used it before. This is the first time we've tried using it
I have the same problem EVERY time I want to use the crock pot. My solution has be patience. I find that if I turn it on, and the light blinks, but when i click it it will blink on 4 hours, then go back to the blinking light. By keeping the crock pot plugged in and off for about 10-15 minutes I was then able to set the crockpot up for cooking. As if the capacitors inside the unit needed power stored in them from the wall.

You might experience a blinking problem if your crock pot is plugged into an extension cord, then the wall. I've had zero blinks when plugged directly into the wall but it started to with an extension cord.

Take out the insert and remove the bottom plate. look at all the connections. the blinking light is probably a neon lamp and because of the AC current will blink or appear to flicker a touch. if you have a meter and are not afraid of testing with the power ON, measure the voltage going in and out through the several wires inside.
