Hello
The 1st thing you need to do is make sure the heating element is working, remove whatever panel u have to and gain access to the heating element connection from the power cord, measure the voltage there with a AC Voltmeter, it should read wall voltage when kiln temperature is tuned to its highest setting, if the heating element doesn't glow and the voltage at the heating element connection is ok and voltage is present then the heating element is defective, a common failure, if no voltage is present at the element suspect the power supply cord, do an OHM test with a meter, it should be less than 3 OHMS, if cord is ok replace the temperature control. If u are not sure of how to do these electrical tests have an electrical tech look at the problem, any appliance repair shop should be able to do these tests, remember high voltage is VERY DANGEROUS, exercise great caution when u test live circuits.

I need an owners manual for modet lt-3k kiln


Do you mean the Dawson LT-3K kiln sitter, a control and monitor for the ceramic kiln? The manual for this is on the product page: http://www.paragonweb.com/ManualInfo.cfm?CID=42 . The direct link to the manual is http://www.paragonweb.com/files/manuals/ACF1B.pdf .

If you need information about the kiln, then please check that model number and add a comment with that information. If your kiln is from Paragon, then try http://www.paragonweb.com/Instruction_Manuals.cfm for a manual. Paragon makes the Dawson LT-3K.

I hope this helps.

Why does internal fuse on stafford 501 controller keep blowing


http://www.staffordinstruments.co.uk/files/install501.pdf

From the manual

This indicates an electrical fault in the control
circuit. The kiln has been on zero power for 15
minutes but the temperature has not fallen by at
least 1°C. Control contacts may have failed closed (e.g. welded). TURN OFF THE KILN [Error 4 should be present]

The cone set button on my Cress E27 kiln quit working, so I need a wiring diagram so I can determine if it is a loose or corroded wire.

I bought a brand new AIM electric kiln last fall. I did the initial burning off but have never fired with it yet. I am afraid to and even though it's band new, had never gotten a manual with it. In...


Hello,

Why don't you try a simple test glazing or pot firing, something you don't care if you lose and see how it goes?

I assume it has a place to set the temperature? If so what is the problem? Just make sure the kiln is away from any flammable objects and watch the kiln while it is running (don't leave it unattended).

You should probably never run it unattended.

Hope this helps.
