Replacing Thermocouple Changes Firing?

Recommended Posts

I have replaced the thermocouple several times in the 8 years I have had my Skutt 1027.  this last replacement, the kiln fired about 1/2 cone cooler. Never happened before. (Elements and relays are fairly new, a few firings on them. ) Any ideas why?

When you say check it with cones,I think I did that. The cones in for the first firing with this new TC were one 5,the firing schedule I use normally gives me cone six. I need to run a glaze load tomorrow morning. I'm guessing and adding 10* to the peak temp with the same firing rate. I've got cones in, we will see. The 1/2 cone cooler left several of my glazes blah.
