  • See the Sales FAQs for Frequently Asked Sales and Preorder Questions
  • The Knowledgebase is organized into a series of questions and answers having to do mostly with technical troubleshooting and understanding of kilns.
  • Although we write this for our own kilns many of these articles apply to other makes - although L&L takes no responsibility for that.
  • Many Knowledgebase articles have Actions, PDFs and Videos associated with them.
  • Actions are specific actions for you to take during the troubleshooting or repair process.
  • Each Action may also have Videos and PDFs associated with it and, in addition, specific Cautions.
Why is the 3 phase WYE 2 section kiln Amp listing on the panel ID lower than the actual amp reading on Neutral?
  • If the kiln were 3 sections with wires running to N, L1, L2, and L3 all 3 amp readings (L1, L2, and L3) would be the same.
  • On a 2 section kiln the wires run only to N, L1 and L2. The amp readings on L1 and L2 are the same and lower than the amp reading at N. The engineers do not list amp readings at N only L1, L2 & (L3).
