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.
Hi, I hope someone can give me advise. I was given an old kiln. But all the wires were cut off at the back of the kiln and from inside the controller. The plaque with the make and model is also missing. My dad is an electrician and used to service my mom's kiln years ago, but need a wiring diagram to see how the wires should be connected. Any ideas ?
Hi, I bought an inexpenisive, VERY old skutt model 175P, 230V, serial number 8. Does anyone out there have wiring schematics on this model. My dad is an electrician doing an interplug wire update for me but the current wiring isn't making sense to him. Specifically why the ground seems to be wired to the elements. Thanks.
I'm trying to help an old friend by long distance with her kiln set up and decided to toss this question to the more experienced here on the forum: The kiln is a Jen Ken 2431 208v three phase rewired to a single phase. It runs off 70 amp breaker with 6/2 wire (very short run to breaker box). Resistance on element wires is 11. Has programmable controller ...Orton "Auto Fire" model. This is a three stack and the electrician involved recommended disconnecting the top element/stack. Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated. Thanks, -Paul
