How can a kiln be wired wrong?
Posted 07 May 2012 - 08:10 PM
I want to know what exactly what type of electrician mistake(s) could cause this type of problem. (it was not the wrong type plug or under gauged wire or too low amps at fuse box )

Or a high amp kiln (like 48 amps)shouldn't even have a plug should be a hard wired so that is another possibility for incorrect wiring
What type kiln is it? Amps, phase, voltage?

Someone told me that a kiln was burning through too many elements because "the electrician had incorrectly wired the kiln". They couldn't tell me exactly how. It is a kiln with a plug.
Perhaps a 208 volt kiln was connected to a 240 volt circuit. Sometimes the voltage changes from one circuit to another even within the same building, especially in schools. A kiln may have been moved to a room that had 240 volts.
