  1. I got this old Paragon kiln for free from someone who had it sitting in their garage for a long time (15 years maybe?). I'm pretty amateur, but I'd love to get more into ceramics and firing/how to upkeep my equipment and safely. Could someone tell me how to go about making sure this kiln is safe for use? The wires look pretty good as far as I can tell, but I'd have no idea if they weren't apart from if they were rusted. There's cracking in the bricks, will that be a problem? (I haven't even cleaned it at all yet and sorry that the photos are blurry)
  2. 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
  3. I have an old Paragon H13 Kiln. I cannot find any information about it. I know it is more than 40 years old because my dad had it in the 70s. Maybe the 60s. The wires are old and need replacing. I don't think it is wired correctly. When the switches are set to high it looks like each element will get 120V from each leg of the 220V input. On the low setting it looks like they get wired in series but one side of the lower element switch is not connected to anything. Can anyone provide a wiring diagram for this kiln? Someone added a Dawson Kiln Sitter to the kiln but it is missing the c
  4. Hi, I have a Paragon TNF823. I changed out the elements and relays a few months back and have done less than a dozen firings since then. The wiring to the kiln is all correct and above specs. I recently completed a successful cone 6 firing with the kiln temperature reaching 2240. But now for two Cone 6 firings in a row the FTL(Firing Too Long) code has displayed and the kiln temperature stopped climbing in the 1730 to 1750 range. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations? Thank you.
  5. I bought a used Paragon DTC 100C, but am not sure it works. Is there an easy and safe way to test it without buying a stand or other items I will not use if it does not work. We have 220 in my shop, cement floors, tons of space. I will upload photos when I am at my computer. They are too big to load from my phone. Thanks!
  6. I was given an older paragon kiln with a set n fire. Its model lt-3k and I have no idea how to use it yet. I want to fire cone 6 stoneware and already have some greenware ready to fire and plenty of furniture. Any advice would be great!
