The Salton yogurt maker comes in two models, the YM9 and the YM7. Occassionally there are other models to be found second-hand.
They give a 1 year limited warranty on both models of this electric yogurt maker.
To make yogurt in either model you need;
No thermometer included nowdays (it used to be included with some older Salton models) so do yourself a favor and buy one.
Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of dry milk powder to 1 quart of milk. This milk powder will give you a thicker yogurt
Heat the milk on the stove to 185-190°F. Do not let it boil. Stir frequently.
Plug in the yogurt maker to warm while your milk is heating.
Cool milk to 110-115°F.
Pour some of the milk into a clean glass and add the half cup of plain yogurt or 1 package of yogurt starter. Stir until evenly mixed.
Pour this mix into the rest of the cooled milk and stir.
Now pour the milk into the pre-heated yogurt maker.
And that's it. You're done.
Leave it for 6-12 hours. The exact amount of time will take a little experimentation. The longer you leave the yogurt "making", the more tart it will become so experiment to find what suits your tastebuds.
