The Switch-Timer on the SnF Kiln
The Switch-Timer on Paragon SnF Kilns
Paragon SnF kilns use an infinite control switch plus one or two switch-timers. (The Limit Timer on the Dawson Kiln Sitter is a different type of timer.)
A wire from the PL terminal on the infinite control switch powers a clock motor on the switch-timer. After the correct amount of time has elapsed, the switch-timer turns on additional elements.
If you have just replaced a switch-timer, and the new timer does not operate, the reason is usually a crossed wire. The easiest way to track down the problem is to trace the wires inside the switch box using the kiln’s wiring diagram. (Before examining the wiring, please unplug or disconnect the kiln.)
