I have a situation that I'm hoping someone out there can help with.
I have an Evenheat PF2329 electric kiln. This kiln has the Perfect Fire, model DTP56DC-E controller. There are three 187-36B600 mechanical relays. There is a single thermocouple.
So, my issue is that the controller, after a single test firing a month ago, no longer appears to be recieving power. I have inspected the connections on the back of the panel and they seem to be good. However there is a bit of corrosion on some of the boards components and capacitors.
The physical condition of the kiln is quite good, and I have no $ invested in it other than some new furniture.
My proposed soloution would be to replace the non functioning board with a new V6-CF Bartlett controller.
My initial questions are:
1) Are there other components i should change out now (like swapping mechanical relays for SSR) while I am upgrading?
2) If I go with the V6-CF, would you recommend that I install two new thermocouple ports to have better zone control?
3) Am I overlooking a more obvious solution?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
