I had the same problem with mine. Set your timer and then hold the start/stop button until the light in your timer starts flashing, it will then start warming up.

I have an all-clad slow cooker that won't get any power

Oh thats a pitty these things happens all the time. These devices working under high temperatures, working once and then turn off until the end of time. Advice you to send it to service if you have guarantee. Else somebody with technical knowledge must check where the problem is by using a test light first then treatment begins.

The lights are flashing and won't stop. I tried to unplug and replug same results ...what should I do?

As far as I know, the flashing lights are an indicator that the slow cooker is on, but awaiting instructions. You need to put in a time and then a temperature and then it will stop.

I personally find the power button very disconcerting and keep having to stop myself pressing it once I've programmed the slow cooker, and accidentally switching the thing off.

My black crockpot has white stain all inside of it ive tried bleach, vinager, comet and plain old elbow grease, nothing works. Any ideas?

Does it appear that the enamel is worn away and the stain is embedded into the underlying ceramic?

If not, here's a crazy thought for a solution that just might work: Oxiclean. It's safe to put in your dishwasher, and it certainly does a stellar job of getting stains out of practically anything. It works best in warm to hot (but not boiling water), so a scoop in a crock pot full of water set to low for an hour or two may just do the trick. If not, I doubt anything will. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly after cleaning. If you've used Oxiclean before, you know how slick the residue can be.

Hope this helps!

Is there a way to set high with more than 6 hours ? I need to set mine for 20 hours in high.

Not unless there is a delay setting on the machine. You could get a timer plug to put into the wall socket. The type you use to ste lights to come on and off when away from home.

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.

Slow cooker not hot

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
