What is Going On?

I realize I have not blogged in a week!  The truth is, I haven’t created in a week and don’t have much to share other than I am still trying to get my kiln fixed.  Saturday I took apart the control panel on my kiln.  I took of that rectangular box to expose all the electrical configuration of my kiln.  Why did I do this?  Well, I am sending parts in to the Paragon Kiln headquarters to get a diagnostic done on my control board and on the thermocouple.  Paragon Supply is out in Texas, so off they went (fully insured).  I hope they will receive the parts either today or tomorrow.  I am sick of being out of work and I have a pile of commissioned work that needs to be fired.  I am hoping for an answer/solution this week.

This is really just a glimpse of the inside.  I should have taken a picture of what the kiln looked like after I had removed the parts!  I have written down the order of wires, colors and which wire plugs into where so I know how to reassemble the kiln when I get the parts back.  I will keep you posted.  Today I am going to work on throwing some pieces to feature on my website that I am building.  I am going to continue to throw pedestal rings today as well.  (Those are boring!)  Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!

    I know there’s a reason that you’re going through all of this and God will make it evident at some point. I think you’ll be able to draw from the knowledge you have gained through this very frustrating experience with your kiln and in the end it will have served you well. I hope and pray this will be the end of your kiln issues, though, and that you can get on with your firing.ReplyCancel
