I have a E-23 electric Cress kiln that stopped firing at a certain temp (1500) I did the paper test on my elements and discovered that the top two, middle two and bottom two are not heating up (all others in between heated up) I was able to do a bisque firing without fail but it stopped firing approx 1500 degrees with the E-1 error. Here is the link to the diagram if it helps- https://3fs7rd1xi6sy2zofjv3g0a0q-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/E23ES23ET23ETS23-208-240-VAC.pdf Thanks so much - I have several orders I am trying to complete and could really use some expert advice here Teri
I have an old second (third? fourth?!) hand kiln that should be able to reach up to 1300 degrees but seems to be getting stuck at around 200 degrees less than I need. I managed to do a bisque firing but when trying to do a glaze firing the kiln stopped at 1075 degrees celsius and then started to cool whilst still on. The controller (Ipco 3300) showed 'END' even though it had not reached the temperature I wanted and did not show an error message. I have no idea about the history of the kiln, when the elements were last changed etc etc. I (think I've) checked the controller settings to make sure nothing is set to hinder the maximum temperature. I have read about working out if it is the relays or the elements? I am a total rookie so don't really know where to start. Is this the best first move to troubleshoot the issue? Or could it be something simpler?
I bought a Skutt Km 1227 off of a friend. It’s in great condition but I did a glow test this morning and only the top two and bottom two elements were glowing by the time it got up to 500. I opened up the electrical panel and everything seems to be connected fine and looks to be in good condition. Has anyone run into this before or know what the problem could be?
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?
