I found my solution. Another kiln of another make.

And you'd get a steady paycheck from them, dealing with all the problems. You'd probably get rich trying to solve their problems. I've gone trough months of dissapointing firings and worked through all kinds of probabilities. My L&L now fires to 04, period. Let's stop this thread. I have nothing more to say and I don't want to hear any more. I heard all this from my tech guy and I still had to buy another kiln. But alls well in the world. Or is it?

Forgot to address a question. Of course it was copper wire, with a run of about 30 ft., Perfectly installed. That kiln comes with a plug attached. My new, Cone Art kiln is hardwired with # 4 copper, one 90 degree angle with a run of about 35 ft. box to junction box.

I've personally used both Skutt and L&L kilns. I think they both work great, though I find the Skutts I've used to be easier to load. However, the first Skutt I used, went through two sets of elements, in the six years I used it. That's just odd, but I'm not about to say that kln sucks, because of that. Odds are, it was something I was doing. It's nearly impossible to judge an entire product model, by just one unit. There's always going to be some issues that pop up with some inits, in any series, those are just the odds.

You have an interesting use of commas, Benzine. I asked the tech guy who works for L&L if it was possible to get a 'lemon' but he said it was not. Refuting technical advise with anecdotal evidence? How about with emperical evidence? I heard all this information and advice that JBaymore has been giving from my tech guy and his final advice was load the kiln to 3 shelves and buy their bigger production kiln. If others find the L&L to work great then great. I didn't. I appreciate all the imput. Enough said, I think.

Considering the ill feelings displayed here, I believe that closing this strand is in the best interest of the community. Each of us has their own opinions based on good and bad. Obviously kdavitt has theirs from a bad experience lending to their opinion. So be it, we all are entitled. Nuff said!
