Default Skutt kiln


Does anyone have any information (or can point me to a link) for a
Skutt 231X kiln? I'm trying to decide whether or not to buy one.
I've googled and can't find any info on this model, so I'm assuming
it's not in production any more. The person selling it says it's a
never-been-fired kiln, but I have no idea what the specs are or what
it's worth.

TIA.

I would recommend that you call or contact Skutt. I came up with this - you
might email the poster.

skutt kiln controls oh heck
updated fri 22 jan 99

Jonathan Kirkendall on mon 19 oct 98 )
Hi All,

Here's something I don't know even where to start with:

I have a Skutt 231X (an old model) with controls on three levels. Just
did a very succesful cone 6 firing yesterday, and loaded a bisque today,
but now the darn thing won't come on. With the cone sitter set, and all
switches on OFF, the light indicating the kiln is on comes on, but as
soon as I turn any of the switches to low, the light goes off and
nothing happens, none of the elements warm up. The elements are all
new, I think this is a switch problem but, as I said, I don't even know
where to begin. Help.

See
http://www.skutt.com/pdf/service_manual/11_2.pdf Looks like 231
is an old style model number and this table shows the equivalent
current model number.

Thanks! It seems that the 231 is equivalent to the 1027, but I have
no idea what the "X" stands for in 231X. At least I have *some* idea
about what it might be like.

y.o. kiln and they sent me a manual for it for free.
