Halacha - Electricity/Shabes
Submitted by Tzvi Schneider  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Lichvod ha'Rav: After removing the pot from the crock-pot, the crock-pot remains uncovered, the heat coming out of it. May I cover it, keeping the heat in, and activating the thermostat to shut it off (less electricity ) ?
Answer: If the heating element is currently on, it would be a problem of gram kibuyi, indirectly causing a fire to be extinguished.
