Run Away Electrical Kiln
Posted 19 April 2010 - 09:54 AM
Thinking I might had blown and element, I checked... looking through the spy-holes, I could see a representative section from each bank of the elements glowing.
Quizzed, I turned off the kiln, but the bottom bank went right on going even though the switch was turned to the off position.

While I wait for the kiln to cool I'm wondering if anyone who has had this problem before can zero me in on the problem?

I also fire electric, but both bisque and glaze (^5 & 6). This has never happened to me but the information from your experience will be a good body of information.

There aren't any special bells and whistles on this beast. No computer controller or kiln vents, just a kiln sitter and 3 knobs, each controlling a separate bank of elements.
I fire this old work horse 3 or 4 times a month to bisque and cone 6. Other than replacing a few rouge elements and the kiln sitter, it's been a very dependable kiln.
