Hey all! I just purchased an old Skutt 1027 to do bisque firings in. The top ring is unattached. I need to wire it back together! There are 2 grounding wires and one conducting wire that lead from the middle box to the top box...all unattached. There's a wiring diagram at the end of this manual. I just don't know how to read it. I have two questions: 1. How do I determine which grounding wire ( N & L according to the diagram) goes to each ground? 2. Which of the three available connections do I connect the conducting wire to?
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)
Hi, We have a Paragon TNF kiln. Moved into a new house and the breaker box is a solid 50 feet from where the kiln needs to sit. The house has 200 amps service. Is it possible to have an electrician run copper wire for the 50 feet and just install a plug for the kiln or will this set-up require a sub-panel installation? We had an electrician come out and they recommended just doing a plug but I have been told in the past that the kiln plug should be within a few feet of the breaker box. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
