I have an original crockpot slow cooker the symbols are 1 line 2 lines and a pic of the pot is 1 line low?


Hello, Brenda -

I looked at a number of images (online) of vintage Rival Crock Pots.

I didn't see any images with just lines for the temperature marks. However, all the images I saw showed the dial and from left to right had the words Off, Low, High.

My estimation is that the single line is for Low and the two lines is for high.

You may wish to test your Crock Pot for heat. Read the information here:
https://www.spendwithpennies.com/how-to-test-your-slow-cooker/
The test involves using the Low heat setting, so you will be able to verify if the single line is for Low.

The article talks about using a thermometer to test the water heated in the slow cooker. For that, I recommend using the kind of thermometer used for candy making. If you do not own one, you may be able to find one to borrow from a relative or friend.

Is the crock pot hamilton beach pot goes in the oven?


...You can Heat Or Cook a Roast Beef in your Hamilton Beach
Crockpot. Never use ANY of its Parts in a Regular Gas or Electric
Oven! Remember to Spray the inside of the Crockpot with a little PAM, before you cook, and add a little Water also...Not much...just a little; as foods will always Add their own juices.

Do i need to add water to my slow cooker if so where do put it


All the ingredients in a crock-pot meal go into the ceramic pot. You don't add any water to the cooker itself. The cooker is basically just a holder for the pot and provides the heat. Any liquid goes into the pot with the rest of the goodies. The pot on many models is removable for serving and cleaning, while the base should be kept away from water (like any other electrical appliance).

If you need a manual for your cooker, you can try here for Rival brand models, here for Hamilton-Beach products, and here for West Bend. Chances are you'll find your model or one similar enough that it should clear up any questions.

Now, what's on the menu?

Use of an old slow cooker


NO!
it should say on the metal below the ceramic pot to not get it wet

slow cookers make enough heat to heat the contents of the ceramic pot.

I have a Rival smart pot given to me no instructions do i need to put water in the base part and then the ceramic and how much water do i need?


You do not put water in the base. Just put your ingredients in the crock part and whatever liquid the receipe calls for. you can probably find the instruction manual on crockpot.com or call and ask them to send one.

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.
