There is a gap between the kiln and the lid near the hinge. Is this normal?
The gap under the lid at the hinge is normal. As the kiln heats up, the firebricks expand, which causes the body of the kiln to grow taller. The gap is designed to help prevent the front of the lid from rising at high temperatures.
