Apparently my controller was happy taking the week off and wasn’t ready to start again today. As soon as I turned it on it made this loud rattling noise and being oh so observant I realized… this is bad! The only piece I had a spare of in my controller was the relay so I thought what the heck, I’ll just swap it out and see if I can fix it without electrocuting myself. Happily… I did! I have already ordered another relay so I can be prepared the next time my controller wants to stay on vacation… ha! At least this time no beads were killed in the process.
So this morning I woke up to glass pancakes and I was quite sad… 🙁 Happily my Dude actually understands the circuitry of a kiln so he took apart another controller that I just happened to have and we figured out it was the relay and we replaced it. My kiln is fixed!! Woohoo!! I can’t tell you how happy this made me!! There is nothing I find more satisfying than an instant fix! Especially on a holiday weekend. My Dude rules!!
In case you are wondering I will have beads tomorrow… sadly not as many of course, but still a few fun sets… 🙂
