If you only have High and Low on the slow cooker this will be normal until it reaches correct temp, the trick is Do not remove the lid once you have started the process, you lose 20 minutes cooking time every time you lift the lid during cooking, if you have timed ex,4,6,or8 hours just set to required cooking time and leave until done. hope this helps clarabella

I have inherited a west bend slow cooker model 84624 and dont have a manuel for it. I am concerned with the 300 watt is this normal? Or is that very low? I dont know how long to cook in this or amounts...


  • 1 Use setting 1 (warm #1) only to warm rolls and muffins. At 140 degrees Fahrenheit, this setting should not be used for cooking.
  • 2 Use setting 2 (warm #2) to keep cooked foods warm until they're ready to be served.
  • 3 Use settings 3, 4 and 5 (low, medium high) for cooking. The setting you choose determines the length of time the food will cook. A typical meal with meat and vegetables needs 7 to 10 hours to cook at the low or #3 setting, 4 to 6 hours at the medium or #4 setting, and 2 to 3 hours at the high or #5 setting.

  • All West Bend slow cooker models eventually simmer at the boiling point, or 212 degrees. The setting simply determines how quickly the cooker will reach that temperature.


    300 watt is not a huge consumption of electricity, depending of course on, how often, how long and how high temperature.

    Cracks in slow cookers. what causes that and how can it be fixed?


    Cracks caused normally in slow cookers is normally caused from the unit being real hot, and then put under facet cold water. When the unit is very hot, and then is put under cold water before it has cooled down on its on to a warm temperature the dramatic change of hot to cold, cracks it. When its hot, its expanded, and then when it goes that fast to cold, it retracts to fast and causing cracks over a period of time, like stress cracks on air planes, when they go up they expand with cabin pressure, and when they come down to land they retract, over a period of time they get worn and cracks develop , same as a crock pot, except yours is with heat, the planes are with air pressure.You can't really fix the cracks. Well, you could have a shop fix them. but the cost would be way more than the crock pot. The only way you can help this from happening in the future, is after using it,before you wash it out let the crock pot cool down on its own for a while. Thanks Mike

    Slow cooker will only stay on warm. How do I put


    This slow cooker has 3 settings LOW, HIGH, & WARM
    When you plug the slow cooker in the display should show a "0". When you press the "COOK TIME" button, the display should go to 1 then 2 then 3 etc. each time the "COOK TIME" button is pressed. If 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the "HIGH" setting. If 7,8,9, or 10 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the "LOW" setting. To start the cooking cycle press the "ON/OFF" button. To interrupt the cooking cycle at any time, press the "ON/OFF" button. When the cooking cycle is complete, your slow cooker will automatically switch to the "WARM" setting. If the "ON/OFF" button is pressed when the the digital display shows "0", then the slow cooker will automatically start on the "WARM" setting.
    If the "COOK TIME" button does not change the display numbers then unplug the slow cooker and hold both buttons down as you plug the slow cooker in. Keep the buttons pressed for a count of ten, then release them and the slow cooker should work correctly

    How do I start the cooker on low?


    The manual says "When your corningware slow cooker is initially plugged into a wall outlet, the display will show"0". This display indicates the programmed number of hours for which a meal will cook.

    The slow cooker can be programmed in one hour increments from 1 to 10 on your digital display. The number of hours may be selected by pushing the COOK TIME button until the desired cooking time appears.

    If 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on HIGH setting. If 7,8,9 or 10 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the low setting.

    To start the cooking cycle press the ON/OFF button. To interrupt the cooking cycle at anytime, press the ON/OFF button. If the ON/OFF button is pressed when the digital display shows "0", then the slow cooker will automatically start on the WARM setting.

    When the full cooking cycle is complete, your corningware slow cooker will automatically switch to the warm setting, to keep food at a warm serving temperature."

    If, after you plug the slow cooker into the outlet, the COOK TIME button does not work, unplug the cooker, hold both ON/OFF and COOK TIME buttons down, plug into wall socket and wait till the display flashes. Release both buttons and the slow cooker buttons should both work.

    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.

    Can't change temperature-stays on "warm"


    Push the COOK TIME button, if the time changes then if you leave the number of hours between 1 and 6, and press the ON/OFF button, it will cook on high that many hours. If you leave the number between 7 and 10, and press the ON/OFF button, it will cook on low that many hours. If you leave the number at "0" then the slow cooker will cook on WARM. If the COOK TIME button does not work, unplug the slow cooker, hold both the ON/OFF button and the COOK TIME buttons down and plug it into a wall socket. After the lights flash a few times, release the buttons. the switches should work.
