Re: Glass lid fit is not level, how can it be adjusted?
The glass lids usually sit in a frame with a sealant under them, you can remove and reset it carefully by using two small screwdrivers to go around the outside using the screwdrivers to (gently) like tyre levers lift it out. Take your time doing this be gentle and it will come out then put it back in square.
good luck Ray

Most crock pots are made of porous ceramic and is relatively brittle. It is glazed on all sides (except the bottom usually), to make it hold liquids without absorption. The lids, usually glass or thermoplastic, sit of top, but do not usually fit tightly as this could crack the crock. Also, it is not a pressure cooker, so you want excess steam to vent. The lid just keeps the heat inside and allows condensation to drip back into the crock, reducing the speed at which the fluids cook off, thus the term slow cooker.
No not if it has never had one fitted by the manufacturer as it wont have a safety device fitted to close the gas supply in the advent that the lid is closed while a burner is still a light which would shatter the safety glass and cause injury to the user. Some glass lidded cookers where imported to England when i was an apprentice gas engineer and no safety device fitted and the lids exploded and where soon made illegal.
When my lid was accidently broken years ago I found a heavy glass saucepan lid at a second hand shop that fitted it. A lid off a casserole dish of similar size would work just as well. Ensure you measure the inside width dimensions without lip and then including lip so you find a lid with a secure fit. Good luck.
For what it's worth, when the handle on my mother-in-law's crockpot broke, I went to Home Depot and bought a cheap wooden drawer knob (about $1 as I recall). I put a plastic washer between the knob and the glass and another under the screw head from the bottom (to prevent cracking the lid), tightened the screw and good as new.
