Hey there, I am new to using gas kilns and also have a new gas kiln (olympic dd9 to be specific). I am having a few issues to say the least... I cant seem to get past 1900 degrees and hold temperature... Ive only had 1 successful cone 5 firing and it barely pulled through... It feels liked ive tried everything, more air, less air, moe gas, less gas... I just dont know what else to do... or what exactly I should do to keep temperature and build it. I ramp perfectly but once it hits 1600/1700 it starts to dwindle.... My other issue is gas, The olmpic book/manual says I should onnly be using 10 gallons of propane per run?... but every run I do use my whole 22 gallon tank(100lb tank) or I dont have enough and it cute off... I know reading this it sounds like I am using too much gas but I dont think thats it. Please anyone with gas kiln experience I would love some advice
