  1. So I recently got my first kiln its a Paragon TnF 66 and it has a DTC 600 control panel. I got it hooked up today and it just read "PF" and it wouldn't budge even after I pressed the buttons. I had the electrician take a look at it and everything seemed normal until he read the fuse which was at a 4.2 ohms instead of 0. I don't know if that would cause the panel to display PF but I just want to be sure before I spend any more money on this thing. I got it off of facebook marketplace so it's definitely not new or under warranty. Transformer, cord, and all the wires are connected and the voltage from the wall receptacle read normal. Any info is welcome and helpful! :)
  2. Just purchased an old Paragon 100 portable controller and I cannot figure out where the thermal couple attaches. There's nothing but the 2 plugs in-and-out. Can anyone advise?
  3. I was sold what I thought was a cone 6 paragon kiln with a sentry 2.0 controller but after several firings realized it was only rated to cone 4. Now its of no use to me so I was hoping it would be possible to move the Sentry 2.0 digital controller over to my old cone 6 manual Cress kiln. The Cress is a 240v 20 amp kiln and the controller is coming off a 240volt 48 amp Paragon. Has anyone done something similar? I am unsure if it would be better to install a receptacle onto the controller and plug the kiln into that or wire the controller directly to the kiln. Are there any resources that might help me figure this out? Thanks' Jaalam Aiken
  4. I've had this Paragon kiln for over ten years, I haven't used it for a long time. I did two burns recently and noticed that the bass pieces don't burn. I've done the five-minute test and all the elements light up. What can it be?
  5. Hello! I just did a bisque firing with my Paragon A55B which has a manual kiln sitter. I fired to 06 in only 3 hours and 15 minutes following the suggested firing schedule from paragon. Which was as follows: 1 hour - Low, Top peephole out, lid vented 30 min - Medium, top peephole out, lid vented 30 min - High, top peephole out, lid vented Then just leave on high with peepholes in and lid closed. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best way to slow this cycle down a bit? Or do you think thats fine for a bisque? I imagine with more pots in it, it will slow it down a bit but its a small kiln and doesn't hold that much. Thanks!! Ariel
