Paragon Electric Kiln - voltage?

Recommended Posts

so i got this kiln for free and im not sure what the voltage should be - the tag on the outside say 220 but saw 110v elsewhere and then the outlet plug just throws me (dont mind the cobwebs)...i pretty much know nothing about kilns but am working on a little home studio so any advice/suggestions are welcome.

 

thanks!

The A-66B requires a 4-wire, 120/240 volt, 30 amp circuit with a 14-30R receptacle. The kiln uses 120 volts on Low and Medium and 240 volts on High. The neutral carries current, and so the fourth wire is necessary as a grounding wire.

We bought an old Paragon B99B with a (similar but not the same) 4-wire plug. You need to have an electrician wire the outlet for this kiln. Cost was about $200 for the wiring job.

Follow Arnolds advice and also start reading up on electricity...then call an electrician to do the work. Paragon has an awesome website with all kinds of troubleshooting info...
