    Using my slow cooker for the 1st time today, have the same problem. Holding the button down seems to help somewhat- the manual does NOT address this part of operations, unfortunately. 

  • jth_jp Jan 12, 2009

    I got the same problem. I have used it a couple of times but now the power light just keeps blinking when I plug it in and it won't do anything else. I have tried pressing all the buttons and hold it down for at least a minute but nothing happen. The manual is no help at all. Is there a solution out there???? Or do I have to toss it and buy a new one? Given the quality, I am not sure I want to buy another one..... Thanks!

    This may seem strange, but mine was blinking 1:00 / 0:00 repeatedly, with the power button not really doing anything.
    What I did to help solve it is to turn over the unit and try it that way. Try turning the unit on its side to get the rotisserie started, then just put on your meat while the center is spinning.

Do I put stting on HIGH or LOW when cooking a stew etc:


It depends on how fast you want t ready to eat. Rival recommends low for 8-10 hours or high for 4 or 4 1/2 hours. Hope that helps you.

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)

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.

I need the user instructions for use


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
I see I am nearly a month late in replying to your post. I just answered another post and when I finished I saw your question.
This is driectly from the user's manual that you can find here with some difficulty:
http://safemanuals.com/314159.php?k=84c8d7db0922eceeab89e8e236b92e45&ID=2854106&q=CROCK%20POT%20SMART%20POT
(Avoid answering questions by looking for the blue text that says "security code" and clicking that) Then enter the 4 digit code to download the manual that is 209k)

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.

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.

That is pretty much the entire user instructions. Everything else is warnings, cautions, and oh yes; don't submerge it in water yadda yadda....

How long to cook in a Tower compact slo cooker (old model)


As to the the slow cooker recipes...Try going to www.goodbks.com and search for "Fix-It and Forget-It" cookbook for starters.

As to then 4 or 8 hour timing I'm assuming you don't have an owners manual for it. I would start out treating it as a 4-hour timer and adjusting the times for various dishes aas you learn the cookers "personality"

Hope I helped a little!

No manual for my old Crock Watcher by Proctor Silex


The auto setting cooks on high for the first hour, then adjusts the setting to low for the remaining cooking time.
Auto Shift allows the slow cooker to heat up to high and then internally shift down to low, so it gives more flexibility in cooking time. Example: A certain recipe may take 4 hours on high, 5-6 hours on Auto Shift and 7-8 hours on Low.

Need directions for presidents choice slow cooker


Heat intensity is warm, 1, 2, 3 (highest)
How to operate: Plug in. Set timer to amount of hours to cook. Press the SELECT button to scroll thru 4 settings - "warm", "1" (Low), "2" (Medium)", "3" (High). Once the desired cooking temp selected, press the "round circle" power button to begin cooking. The time display will now start to count down to "0:00" When the cooking time has been reached, the slow cooker will automatically go into "warm" mode for a maximum of 6 hours, then automatically turn off. NOTE: Not recommended using the WARM setting for more than 4 hours at a time. NOTE2: To stop the cooking process at any time, press the "round circle" power button. The unit will default to "0:00" time but the indicator light in the "3" high position will remain on.

Temperature guide


1 is low = 6-8 hours depending on how full, 2 is high = 3-4 hours and Auto will automatically cook on 2 for a certain time and then switch to 1 to finish off.

Hope this helps

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.

If you choose the auto selection the slow cooker will cook for three hours on high then will automatically reduce to the low setting.

It wont heat up and all the lights just keep blinking


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.
