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.
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.
