Check Your Voltage

  1. Check your voltage at the receptacle or at your fused disconnect box. Check voltage at your panel and where the kiln is connected. Check the voltage when the kiln is firing and when it is not firing.
  2. Make sure no other large electrical appliances such as a clothes dryer or electric oven are on when you are operating your kiln.
  3. Find out from your local utility company when the end of the peak period of electrical use is.
  4. Check to see what the wire size of your circuit is. If it is very far (more than 50 feet) from your main circuit box then the wire size might need to be higher.
