Trying to cook ham in crockpot, should I move it to the oven?

So I'm trying to cook (aka heat up) a Kentucky Legend smoked ham. It's right around 6 pounds and boneless. I put it in my new 7 quart crockpot (got it for Christmas) at 10am, hoping it would be done by dinner time. When I put the lid on, I noticed that there was a slight gap between the insert and the lid and the lid was a bit wobbly so I put aluminum foil around the edge as best I could to help cover the gap. I ran out of foil while doing that.

2 hours in, I decided to check the temperature of the broth I had put in the bottom of the crockpot to help give the ham some extra moisture. I put in my thermometer and it only read 140 degrees. Is that safe? I thought crockpots got to like 200+ degrees in just a few hours?

Should I move the ham to the oven? If so, how would you recommend cooking it the rest of the way? I don't have a roasting pan so it would have to go on a pan with a short lip or it would have to stay in my crock insert. Any advice you may have would be great! I absolutely SUCK at cooking but I'm really trying to get better.
