FAQ/Answer

I am moving to Europe. Can I rewire my 120 volt, 60 Hz SC-2 for 220 volts, 50 Hz?

The earlier SC-2 kilns had one element. Later we redesigned the kiln to have two elements, which improved the heat distribution. Provided your SC-2 kiln has two elements, you can rewire it to fire on 240V, 50Hz. You will not need to fire your kiln on a voltage converter.

The two-element, 120 volt SC-2 kiln is wired in parallel. You will need to rewire it in series and change the cord set. That will convert the kiln to 240 volts, which will also fire on 220 volts. It will operate on both 60 or 50 Hz.

If your kiln is the earlier design with only one element, it cannot be converted to 220 volts unless you change the ceramic fiber muffle. Return the kiln to the Paragon factory for the upgrade. Once you upgrade to the newer two-element muffle, you can convert it back to 120 volts if you ever return to the United States.
