Question about Rival 38651-C 6-Quart
When I plug the crockpot in, all three lights (Low, High and Keep Warm" are blinking, and I can't set the crockpot to cook. I have unplugged and plugged back in and have tried again over several hours to the same results. There is nothing in the owner's manual about this, but perhaps others have encountered this problem as well.
We have their 6 quart Crock Pot. Same problem cited here!
We have found that, if you press both the (Low/High/Warm) AND the (Off) buttons at the same time, the controls will revert to the proper state. It has worked for us on several occasions so we trust it and have found no "adverse results"!
Hope this is a help to others.......

I took my air compressor and blew the excess moisture out from the bottom of the base. (it got in their from a "damp cloth") within two minutes it was working just fine.

What is the answer? Rival must have modified their "Help" page because it no longer even mentions crockpots anymore. I have the same problem and would like to know the solution. Thanks!

The hair dryer worked for me as well. I think some liquid got into the circuit board and was causing some shorting in the circuit. Thanks!

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

the warm setting to cook or reheat food.

automatically shift to the Warm setting and the Warm light will come

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.
