Need to know how to fix your Crock Pot power light blinking? Many people have experienced this common problem and are looking for an answer.
This short guide shows you how to fix your Crock Pot power light blinking issue as quickly and easily as possible so you can get back to cooking great food with ease!
It worked fine for me in the beginning but I faced a problem as I used it for some days. The fixes that I tried are mentioned in the article.
Do not use your crock pot if you notice the power light blinking
If your slow cooker’s power light is blinking, it could be a sign that your device is overloaded. The power light only indicates that there is no power going to any of its heating functions. It indicates that there may be an overload or wiring problem.
If you have recently plugged in a new appliance such as a blender, mixer, or iron, remove it and try to reset your slow cooker again.
If you continue to experience problems with overloading devices in close proximity to your crock pot, we recommend finding another location for it (such as unplugging another heavy appliance).
Remember: Always follow manufacturer instructions when using electrical appliances!
Check the outlet you plug into
Try resetting your slow cooker to see if that fixes things. Unplug it, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in. If you’re using an extension cord or power strip, make sure it’s working and that there aren’t any loose connections or breakers tripped.
Or try plugging into another outlet. In most cases, if these simple steps don’t solve your problem. You probably need to replace one of your electrical components (such as a switch). Check out our guide on repairing electrical problems for help troubleshooting yours.
Unplugged? Plug it back
If your crock pot is unplugged, it may seem like its lights are broken. In some cases, there is a problem with an outlet or plug that prevents your appliance from getting power. If you plug it back in and it still doesn’t turn on, you’ll need to take a closer look at your appliance’s cord.
Many newer slow cookers have removable cords that can easily be replaced if they become damaged. If not, check and see if any components are loose and able to be tightened by hand.
Reset your circuit breaker
Most modern electronics are equipped with circuit breakers, designed to protect your home from overheating. When you plug in your appliance and it starts blinking or turns itself off, chances are you have a problem with your circuit breaker.
Luckily, it’s usually fairly easy to reset it. Simply flip it back on and plug in your slow cooker again. You should be good to go! If flipping it back on doesn’t work, then contact an electrician.
In case that doesn’t work… well, maybe there was something wrong with that crock pot power light blinking after all? (If you run into trouble finding an electrician, ask us questions in the comments section!)
Reset your outlet switch
This may seem like a simple solution, but you would be surprised how many times it works. Just pull out your plug and plug it back in.
If your light is still flashing then check to see if your outlet has power and call an electrician if necessary. If there is no problem with your outlet switch then move on to the next step.
Replace your outlet switch/fuse
The fuse that supplies power to your slow cooker is located in your outlet. If you have access to a multimeter, check for continuity between prongs. After that make sure there’s no electrical short.
If you don’t have a multimeter, try swapping out fuses with one from another device. Make sure it is plugged into an adjacent outlet and plug your crock pot back in.
If it powers on, you know there’s an issue with your existing switch or fuse. If it doesn’t power on, unplug it and call an electrician. They’ll be able to pinpoint where there’s a problem in your electrical system. They can either fix it or advise you of options (like buying a new outlet).
