I am a newbie potter and I have purchased a 20 year old, smallest Stanton T25 electric Kiln. It is working, it has a digital controller in a black box, probably not the original, and a large white box underneath that ? No idea what that is but all the wiring goes through it. We are trying to use it today with a test firing. The controller has simple settings; a temperature readout, a set switch to set the temp you want it to reach, a soak switch which holds the temp, and a switch which sets the rate the temperature climbs ie the power. It does not appear to have a time switch, so it is a sort of manual kiln, no spy holes, and a bung in the lid presumably to let any steam escape at low temperature. Top loader, with a lock mechanism which will not allow the lid to be opened when switched on. We have no idea how to control the cooling speed and have just adjusted the temperature setting every hour today. No idea what we will find when we open it tomorrow! We have been unable to obtain an instruction book or find one online. If someone has this kiln and can give me simple instructions that would be great, or a copy of an old instruction book. Thank you for all the great questions and answers, this site has been invaluable for me.
