Question:

If on shabbos a goy tripped on the crockpot cord and unplugged it and on his own plugged it back in – may the chulent be eaten on shabbos?
Any difference in how cooked the item is?

Answer:

It is considered as if the gentile is doing the action for himself- in order to correct what he did- and it is permitted to benefit from it.  This is also because you didn’t ask him to do it for yourself, and he did it on his own.

Best wishes
