If I open the door while my digital kiln is hot, will the kiln continue to fire within the programmed firing schedule after I close the door, or will I have to restart the kiln?

Cracking open the door for a moment will barely affect the interior of a firebrick kiln. This is because the insulation stores so much heat. The temperature may go down, but when you close the door, the temperature will quickly begin to rise again.

Opening the door wide will lower the temperature farther than cracking the door open. This may happen when removing a piece during copper enameling or when raking the glass. But the controller will automatically begin raising the temperature again to continue firing the segment that you programmed. You do not need to reprogram the kiln.

Opening the door may trigger an alarm message that indicates the kiln cannot heat as fast as you had programmed. But the kiln will continue to fire.
