Why won’t the cone in the Kiln Sitter bend?

The most common reason for this is that the wrong cone was used. The cone number stamped on the side of the cone is small. It is easy to load the wrong cone.

If the Kiln Sitter does not trip, even though the cone bends, check the rod for free movement inside the porcelain tube. (The porcelain tube will last longer, by the way, if the top peephole is left open, or if you use a downdraft vent. This reduces the flow of fumes through the porcelain tube.)

It is also possible that a wire inside the switch box has obstructed the movement of the Kiln Sitter parts, not allowing the Kiln Sitter to trip.
