What do I do if the kiln heats too fast?

Voltage

  1. Check your voltage. Some people may have high voltage like 245 volts where you should nominally have 240 volts.
  2. Make sure you don't have a 208 volt kiln hooked up to a 240 volt circuit. This is dangerous because the kiln will draw more amps than it is rated for which will overload the power wires and other components and could cause a fire.

Elements

  1. Check element ohms and compare with factory values. (See CHECKING ELEMENT OHMS).
