Many repairs on your kiln can be done by removing and old or damaged part and inserting a new one.
If you get a chipped area in your kiln lid it should be repaired immediately.
Your kiln will give you years of service if you care for it properly. It should not be considered as a household appliance, but rather a piece of hard working machinery.
An overfiring in your kiln can occur if the Kiln sitter is our of adjustment or if the free fall of the weight is impeded.
You should learn to adjust and operate your kiln sitter before firing. You should recheck this periodically.
A gap between the lid and the bottom of the kiln during firing is caused by the distortion of the kiln from thermal expansion.
