It wont heat up and all the lights just keep blinking

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.

3 lights blinking on my sccpvc709-s


Someone suggested there is moisture under the pot. Use hair dryer to dry it up.
Other suggestion is if you press both the (Low/High/Warm) AND the (Off) buttons at the same time, the controls will revert to the proper state

The instruction manual does not say anything. But you can find the Crock Pot number to call.

Just been given crock pot with 3 settings can you explain them no manual came with pot


It sure would help us to help you if you could get the model number off of the bottom of the unit. I can probably locate a user's manual with that information. Try this site to locate the manual: (my best guess without a model number)
http://safemanuals.com/314159.php?k=84c8d7db0922eceeab89e8e236b92e45&ID=2854106&q=CROCK%20POT%20SMART%20POT
(209k)
Find the little blue print that says enter security code and then you can dounload the manual.
The settings should be OFF High 4 High 6, Low 8 Low 10 and warm.

1. Place food in stoneware according to recipe.


2. Plug in Smart-Pot™ slow cooker. The Power light will begin to flash

indicating that the unit is plugged in, but not turned on.

HOW TO PROGRAM YOUR SMART-POT™ (CONT.)

3. Push the Cook Time button to scroll through the timed cooking

options. Push once and the 4 hour light will illuminate, twice and the

6 hour light will come on, etc. Select the time based on the length of

time indicated in the recipe. Two time options are usually given. The 4

and 6 hour settings are the HIGH temperature setting and may be

used when you want your food done quicker. The 8 and 10 hour

settings correspond to the LOW temperature setting and is used for all

day cooking. In addition your Smart-Pot™ can be set to the Warm

Setting by scrolling through the timed cooking options until the warm

light illuminates.


NOTE: The Warm setting is for keeping already hot food warm. Do not use

the warm setting to cook or reheat food.


4. When the cooking time is completed, the Smart-Pot™ slow cooker will

automatically shift to the Warm setting and the Warm light will come

on. NOTE: We do not recommend using the Warm setting for more

than 4 hours.


5. To turn the Smart-Pot™ off push the OFF button. Unplug unit from the

wall outlet.


6. For other recipes that give a range of times, select the time closest

to the setting on your Smart-Pot™. For instance a recipe calling for

cooking time of 7 to 9 hours on LOW, set your Smart-Pot™ to 8 hours.

NOTE: If power goes off then power light will blink and settings must be

reset. If cook time is changed before the cycle is complete the time will
reset to the new setting.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I just put some precooked, still warm food in my crockpot. I tried to set the control to warm so I could serve later. Can't get warm to turn on. How can I?


To better diagnose your problem I need more information. Does your crockpot have a light that indicates when your heating element is ON? If so, increase the temp of the crock pot knob to find out if the LED light comes on at all. (you may also wish to make sure the unit is plugged in and the outlet is working properly.)

Since all crockpots work using a temp sensor, it could be that the temp of the food is still warm enough that the crockpot thermostat is not calling for additional heat to maintain the temperature. If you can, remove the crockpot liner and let the unit cool somewhat to allow the thermostat to return to room temp and reset.

If this doesnt solve your problem, chances are that the sensor/thermostat may be faulty or one of the circuits to the heating element may have overheated causing a wire to become disconnected or burn out. Appliances can wear out with use or age and even power surges can 'fry' delicate circuitry.

How do I get both 8 hours time and high setting on this crockpot?


I got it on high for 1 hour and then reset it to low for 7 more hours and everything appears to be fine. I suspect that this crock pot runs at a little higher temperature. The *low* setting seems as hot as my older crockpot on high...... With this crock pot - set the hours while turned off with the right button and then turn it on. You may have to play with it several times to get the proper heat setting. As I said, I could only keep on it *high* for 1 hour.

Green light is blinking, but I am unable to trun the power on.


rival smart pot 38651 crock pot all light blinking
to reset this you need to hold both thye right and left button for 30 seconds. the cause of this is from unpluging the unit when it is on also a power failure will cause this. if this does not work hold all four buttons in. they only tell you this if you get the right person at Jarden Consumer Solutions

All Three Lights Blinking


We have their 6 quart Crock Pot. Same problem cited here!

We have found that, if you press both the (Low/High/Warm) AND the (Off) buttons at the same time, the controls will revert to the proper state. It has worked for us on several occasions so we trust it and have found no "adverse results"!

Hope this is a help to others.......
