  1. I bought a used paragon 10 sided TnF 23-3 kiln and just had the electrician here today to run wiring for it. I did a test to see if all of the elements worked and discovered that the two at the top and the two at the bottom glow bright red, YAY! However (this may be a newbie question), there seem to be about four in the middle that do not fire at all. Is this normal? What do I do next? It has a chip and some cracks in the brick in the lid that I can fix and I plan to set it on a stand and get a Orton VentMaster. Any other advice for me?
  2. Morning my fellow artisans! as I mentioned yesterday, I have a Gare TM1822 (feels like that’s the year it was made lol). I need to replace the elements. Does anyone know the part number(s)? I know that evenheat can get them I just want to shop around for pricing. thx eE ps it’s a 240 volt
  3. Hi, new to this forum because of some paragon kiln mysteries. Bought a second-hand paragon a66-be kiln a few years ago, in an almost unused impeccable state. Now one of the elements burned out so I ordered two new ones to replace the two existing. I ordered them directly from the factory saving me some hustle and problems (I thought). After receiving the elements from paragon ; made for this model number I figured out they are one loop (around the oven) too long (around 3 feet). Both of them ! I now see that the models sold in the United States had 3 grooves per brick for loopin
  4. Hi, I am not an artist, but am helping my daughter set up a new studio in her garage. Or a garagio as I believe it is sometimes called here. She has worked in a community studio for some time, and now wants more control over her work. The plan is to slowly add to the studio and eventually transition to it over the next year or two. She recently bought a used Skutt KM 1027 kiln which we wired up while I was visiting. This kiln has built in diagnostics, so I was wondering if regularly testing the element resistance is really needed most of the time. From the diagnostics screen you can have th
  5. I was wondering if someone could cast an experienced eye over these elements for me and tell me if you think they need replacing? I suspect they do as my kiln struggles over 1100 degC. Not really sure what to look for in a knackered element though. Is it sensible to replace all elements at once? Or is it possible that some wear out faster than others and you don't always need to replace them all in one go? Thanks Luke
  6. I have an Amaco top load kiln. It is 21 years old and gets light use-8-10 05 firings per year. Elements seem to be burning out more frequently the past few years. Is that typical of an older kiln or could there be a repairable issue causing it? The cost is adding up, and I wonder if it is time to replace.
  7. GOOD KILN MFG INC Will my fired pieces be okay, strength wise, if all of my elements aren't reaching full temp? (The kiln shuts off and the 06 cone fires perfectly.) I want to run at least one more load before I rip out and replace the erroneous elements. Thank you, -NewElementsOnTheWay
  8. Hello everyone! I bought a small top loader kiln that runs of mains (13amp) and I now need to change the elements. I need to know the model and make in order to get the right wattage/amperage elements. If anyone can tell from the photo below please gimme a shout! It has a dawson LT-3 sitter if that's helpful. Can get more photos if helpful! Thanks in advance
  9. Hi all, I think I have discovered an issue with my kiln. I am bisque firing tonight and I noticed when all switches are turned to low, the top light stay on. It does not blink on and off indicating the intermittent flow of electricity to the elements. So I turned the top element off because the temp began to rise way too quickly. Firstly, can I fire the kiln with just the bottom three elements?Second I will definitely need to hire a kiln repair gut to fix this right? Thank! -Mary
