How should my kiln be maintained on a regular basis?

REGULAR KILN MAINTENANCE

To keep your kiln in top operating condition, we recommend the following minimum housekeeping:

The contactors on my Easy-Load, Hercules or Davinci kiln are loud. What can I do about it?

The first and easiest thing to do is to change the cycle time of the contactors.

I want to do reduction firing with alcohol drip. Does L&L provide any coating on elements to improve lifetime in such usage?

We don't offer any coatings for elements. There is an ITC coating that some people claim to use with success.
