Hello Ginger,
Do you know if there's a service center in your area where you can get one. Or if go online on the inter-net, just type in, it should give you the web site you need to get a copy of your instruction manual.
Okay, Spurs21

I just downloaded the manual for the rival crock pot. The site is and you click on the customer service tab for a manual. Lots of different ones there. You just need to know your model number.
Hope this helps you all.

Lid not a tight or smooth seal

Hi, I have a Durabrand Slow Cooker and before that I had a Rosemary Conley one, both had loose fitting lids but this did not affect the cooking etc. I think that is the way they are meant to be. Use a non slip mat too as this may help, mine never vibrated even on high. Maybe you should get someone to look at it for you.
