KilnSitter Kiln Wiring Diagrams
The very KilnSitter Kiln Skutt produced rolled off the line in 1954. The KilnSitter itself has not changed much over the years but the kilns they are mounted on went through a few variations. The first group of kilns are called “The Old Style” and were made from 1954 to 1980. These kilns had KilnSitters without the Dawson branding and had shallower control boxes. When Skutt moved to using a Dawson branded KilnSitter they changed the name styling of the models and begin putting an “A” in front of the serial number. These kilns are the “A Series” and they were made between 1980 and 1996. The most significant change was the elimination of Interbox plugs and Receptacles. These allowed the sections to plug into each other instead of being connected by wires passing through the boxes. This change was made in 1996 due to the manufacturer of the parts discontinuing them. These Models use the new name styling but have a “KS” added to the front of the model name. Skutt calls these the “New Style” kilns.
