I've just received my new Skutt 8x4 LT test kiln and thought I'd take it out for a spin. I plug it in, it beeps, flashes "idle" and the temp alternately, but when I push the start/stop/enter nothing happens. Then I try the Up View Segment button and it gives me a Opt message. And there it stays, locked that way. Nothing in the error messages nor regular messages says anything about "Opt." Help!
(Sorry in advance if this is a duplicate...original post seems to have disappeared.) I picked up a tiny 30 or 40 yr old L&L Econo K14 which had probably never fired higher than 05 or 04 in its long life at a community center. I'd like to re-purpose it as a test kiln for a batch of glaze variants. I think these little babies were originally rated up to 2300, but I'm not sure that's realistic, especially considering its age and history. I'm testing mid range glazes, 5 and 6. Am I being overly cautious? Thanks for your perspective.
