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.

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?

I now see that the models sold in the United States had 3 grooves per brick for loopin
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
