Skutt Error Codes

Error Code Description Causes Correction Possible Parts
FAIL Steady display all thermocouples (T/C’s) have failed. If flashing thermocouples of a zone control kiln has failed.   Change T/C. Skutt Type K Thermocouple Replacement – Element Only – 8 Gauge
Skutt Type K Thermocouple (8 Gauge) with Block and Wire
Skutt Type K Thermocouple with plug for KM-1 Wall Mount (M1 Cable)

E- 0 Software Error. Caused by hardware or electrical noise, can be caused by electrical spikes, surges, or arcing. Recheck the selected program, and reprogram if necessary. Skutt Touchpad with Circuit Board (For Standard Type K Thermocouple)
Skutt LT Touchpad with Circuit Board (For FireBox and GlazeTech kilns)
E- 1 The temperature is increasing less than 12 degrees per hour during a ramp segment, where the temperature is programmed to increase. This slow rate must persist for 22.5 minutes before the error is displayed. Worn or old heating elements. Low voltage to the kiln. A broken heating element or faulty relay. Burned or broken wires to the elements or relays. Electrical noise. Check elements. Check Relays. Use VOLT Menu feature to check voltage. Elements

E- 2 During a hold segment the temperature rises to greater than 50 degrees above the hold temperature which was set. The temperature must stay 50 degrees above this set temperature for 18 seconds before the error is displayed. Stuck relay. If only one section (or relay) remains on then it is a stuck relay. Turn of breaker to shutoff power to the kiln. Elements

E- 3 During a hold segment the temperature is more than 50 degrees below the hold temperature which was set. The temperature must stay 50 degrees below this set temperature for 18 seconds before the error is displayed. Opening the door or lid of the kiln. Relay or element failed during firing. Check relay.

E- 4 The firing is in a ramp segment where the temperature is programmed to decrease and temperature is more than 50 degrees above the previous hold temperature. The temperature must remain 50 degrees about the hold temperature for 18 seconds before the error is displayed. E- 4 is the same as E- 2 except that E- 4 occurs during a ramp phase rather than a HOLD. Stuck relay. Skipped step feature. Check relay. If E- 4 occurs when skipping a ramp phase, press a key to clear the error. Allow the kiln to cool to within 50 degrees of the next hold temperature. Restart kiln and skip steps until you get to the segment you want. Elements

E- 5 A Negative temperature is displayed. This generally indicates the thermocouple is connected incorrectly. To correct this situation, ensure the red and yellow wires are connected correctly to the controller and at all junctions. You can identify the red lead on an unmarked thermocouple with a magnet because a magnet will be attracted to the red lead. Open door or lid. Bad elements. Bad relay. Check elements. Check relay.

E- 6 A Negative temperature is displayed. This generally indicates the thermocouple is connected incorrectly. To correct this situation, ensure the red and yellow wires are connected correctly to the controller and at all junctions. You can identify the red lead on an unmarked thermocouple with a magnet because a magnet will be attracted to the red lead. Using the kiln in temperatures below 0 degrees °F (17 degrees °C). Thermocouple (T/C) connected backwards, red and yellow leads reversed. Board has been damaged by static electricity or ESD (electro static discharge). Check T/C to make sure it is connected properly. Do T/C bypass test, if temperature reading is still negative, the board has been damaged and needs service. Skutt Type K Thermocouple Replacement – Element Only – 8 Gauge

E- 8 When using the CONE FIRE MODE, the temperature is decreasing during the last ramp segment. If this a KilnSitter Kiln using a Wall Mount Controller, KilnSitter may have shut off the kiln. Faulty relay. Broken Element. KilnSitter Shut-off kiln. Check relay. Check Elements. Check Cone used in KilnSitter. Elements

PF Continuous PF in display. Indicates a long-term power outage The kiln has been shut down. Press 1 to clear the display and restart the kiln. None 
Err P A continuous Err P indicates a short term power outage has occurred and the kiln has continued with the program. Power Outage. Power Surge. Press 1 to clear the display If firing was in progress, it will continue. None 
Err- The Err with a dash indicates there was a power loss to the controller while writing a program to the non-volatile memory chip. Power loss. Recheck the selected program, and reprogram if necessary. None 
E- E or E- t A hardware error has been detected by the controller software. Hardware error. The controller must be returned for service or replaced. Skutt Touchpad with Circuit Board (For Standard Type K Thermocouple)
