Love the storyboard. You did a great job. Did you have a schematic? I have repaired my Paragon A82B and working on a Duncan 1029N. The Duncan and my Orton Auto Fire 3000 have been disagreeing on when to turn off the kiln. I'm replacing all the switches and relays. The coils are okay. Did you know that you can find many parts cheaper on the web by doing a Google search? Yeah, I found the same relay for 20 buck that sold for 5 times more on Paragon. Go to the manufacturers. Just saying.

Hope you had fun, grrrrr. I know what you mean. LOL

Thank you everyone. I had a very simplistic schematic so I kind of had an idea where to look for stuff. The scariest thing was just doing it, standing there with a screwdriver in my hand and the control box glaring back at me was really the hardest part.


Once I got started it was a lot like repairing a computer actually and I've done that loads so the nerves went away. I thought posting this might come in handy for another new potter out there just looking for some basic info on the procedure. Figured I might as well make it fun if I was going to do that.


I test fired it and it was firing about 15 degrees too warm so I did a TC Offset for that. Fired it again and it looks good to go! Who hoo!
