How To Repair A Bulging Element: The Paragon Kiln Maintenance Series


Repair a bulging sidewall heating element. This information applies to most brands of electric kilns. Tools needed: needle-nose pliers, snap-ring pliers, propane torch, and a butter knife. Disconnect the power before starting and observe caution around a propane torch. Elements become brittle after they have been fired, so an element should be heated before you stretch or move it back into an element groove. The video was produced at the Paragon kiln factory in Mesquite, Texas USA. Narration: Shelia Collins; camera and editing: Arnold Howard
