Just purchased a used Olympic 1818 stackable elc. kiln, it also has the Dawson Kiln Sitter LT-3K.
My question is why is the Kiln Sitter posted at 45 amps while the kiln is 21amps. Do I need to run this kiln on 30 amp breakers or 50?
What is it about the Sitter that requires 45 amps? or am I simply confused?
Forgive my ignorance as I am elc. challenged and have been searching the web for info all day.
I am unable to plug this unit in yet as I need to wire the kiln with a plug to fit the dryer outlet or hire a professional electrician to wire a separate outlet. At the moment it has a NEMA 6-50 plug.
Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
