I fired my recently acquired 2nd hand but only 6 month old kiln yesterday for the first time. I didn’t expect an issue. Set the bisque to fire to 980c. Started at 7pm. Checked at 7-8am, it appeared ok and cooling down. Temp around 780c. Busy day. Went out in the morning. Checked it at 2pm and temp was going back up. So I thought maybe I misread the temp in the morning as I was tired. Anyway as I wasn’t 100% sure if there was an issue, I let it carry on. Assuming if it hadn’t got up to temp it would do so now . I made a quiver spreadsheet to check ramp or hr and temp and realised it wasn’t right. But thought well damage done. It will cool down now. Had to pop out for an hour. Husband came home and sud it was going up again. So at this point I turned it off to stop the program. No witness cones. i have 2 questions 1) will my bisque wear be any good. Will it take glaze? I had a lot of test tiles in, should I chuck them out? 2) does this sound like a fault with the kiln or in the program. I created a new program. thanks.
