Re: 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.

The outside of my slow cooker gets very hot, is that normal? Also, on the low setting the ingredients seem to at a pretty high boil.

Yes, many models have hot outsides. To check temp, fill with water, put on low for 1 hour, check with an instant read thermometer. If it is over about 200 (normal low temp), your pot is running very hot.

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.

Too hot

The thermostat needs to be repaired, but I believe that the unit is actually rivited together, making replacement difficult. Thermal breaker should stop it from actually catching fire.

Cooks too hot

It would SEEM that this pot has a nanufacturing problem, where the thermal switches, that actually cycle the unit off when it reaches a certain temperature, are faulty...right from the factory. Its common to get a run of faulty thermal units, and is often seen in Coffee Makers.

Outside of Crock Pot Extremely Hot....Is This Normal?

This is not normal. Thermal switch is not functioning correctly. Wiring inside not easy to replace. Crock pots cause a lot of home fires. Cheaper to simply buy a new one.
