Middle Of Kiln Is Overfiring

21 March 2014 - 07:37 AM

hellooo again....


i FINALLY got all of my elements replaced and now the middle of my kiln is overfiring.

just enough to crack the bottoms of things. is there a way to adjust anything? something? somewhere?


i tested a ^06 firing empty and the cones bent perfectly.

now im firing to ^3 and things are coming out slightly warped and the bottoms are cracking.

ive been packing the kiln as full as i can.


i havent tested the ^3 firing with the free standing cones yet to see how off it is.


any thoughts?
