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"!

Add more liquid. If it is still getting too hot, check to see if it has a temperature knob on it somewhere, if not, you can release some of the heat by removing the lid slightly to let steam and heat release from it as it cooks
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.
The auto button is ususally it startts off on high setting to warm up the crock and when it reaches a pre set temperature it will shift to med or low which ever is the next lower setting it will continue cooking at this setting unless you change it
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.
