Slow cooker too slow?

Just acquired a slow-cooker, it doesn't behave how I imagined it would. Are my expectations misguided or did I get a dud...?

Got a slow-cooker for christmas, very excited. Tried it out today cooking chickpeas, I cooked them for 8 hours on high and though they are cooked, they are still a bit husky - not as soft as I like them. Also I was expecting the water to be bubbling, but it didn't ever seem to come to the boil. There was steam coming off but no visible bubbling. Is this how it works? Seems like it should have gotten hotter. Did I get a dud? This
is the one I got. Anyone know anything about slow cookers?
