slow cooker help please!!!!!

What I've always been told is that meats which need slow cooking i.e the cheaper cuts on the whole, go through a tough stage, to a tender stage and then back to tough. I'd say it's over cooked. Surprised that happened in a slow cooker though.

I'm 99 per cent sure that that rule applies to oven slow cooking. I normally calculate for an 8 hr max. slow cook - any longer I put it on the lower setting on my slow cooker. This may not be the right answer though as never tested it beyond 8 hrs on normal setting!!!!
i have the morphy richards one and an old tower slow cooker which i havent tried yet, but i have tried lots of different kinds of beef with no luck!:(
What cuts of beef are you using?
And have you tried other meats eg a whole chicken?

Not all cuts are suitable for slow cooking - you need the tougher ones rather than prime cuts
