Hi Nicky,

Glad to hear the kiln's arrived!  Woohoo!! Grin

To do my first empty firing, I just ran one of the 5 speed firings (I think that's how many there are???).  I think I picked the middle one. (SPD3)  I left the bung out and opened a window to let any fumes and pongs out - there might be a few. Also - I don't recommend you leave the kiln unattended while you do it, to make sure the kiln doesn't over fire, but I'm sure you already know all this.

Anyway - the bit where you'd normally pick Pr01, you pick Spd3 instead and press start.  The kiln will then fire up quickly to the pre-programmed temp, then cool.  Then once it's cooled you can start an annealing schedule with a kiln full of beady goods. Grin

Good luck! Grin

Yeh - you normally leave the bung in for annealing and fusing.  The 'ole is only left open when you are doing stuff like silver casting.

Have fun Nicky - don't forget to show us piccies of your beads. Grin

Now that's almost the exact schedule I use except for the first ramp on FULL  When I first got my SC2 I could'nt ramp it on FULL as it kept coming up with an error.  It takes about 10 mins now to heat up to 510, been wondering if I should have another crack at ramping it up on FULL 1st ramp but scared of breaking it!!

Instead of pressing the up button twice and the start once to go on to the annealing section, I press up once and start twice.....which is easy to remember (upstart start)....and this works.   I'm sure that's what i was told to do.  Sorry if this confuses anyone.   Pris

That's what I do too, Pris (when I remember, otherwise I'm on my knees reprogramming the kiln in sub-zero temperatures, panicking that my day's work will crack! Ah, I remember that well, and I did it twice Shocked. Now I've written 'up start start' on a bit of old kiln shelf so I don't forget again Grin.

I have follwed the instructions to set the kiln to cook the beads as I go along once I have them all in there how do I 'skip' the remaining time I have set up on the holding/garaging phase???
I have the Paragon sc2 with bead door.
Thanks

You press the up arrow, then press start button, then press start again and it will move to the next stage

Helen,

you're a star for this. Just about to garage beads as I work for the first time and instantly found your post.
You just made my life easier!
