How does one test the heating elements? I am concerned that mine are worn out.
You can test the elements with an ohmmeter. However, it can be difficult to tell from an ohmmeter reading if the elements are worn out, because the meter could be a little out of calibration. A more reliable way to test them is the voltage-under-load and ammeter tests. You will need a multimeter that can measure volts and amps. Compare the amperage reading with the amps listed on the kiln’s electrical data plate.
