Skutt Elements are made by Skutt and designed for Skutt kilns. We recommend purchasing elements in complete sets to ensure that the kiln is heating up evenly, as designed. Keep in mind that when one element burns-out a another is soon to follow. You will be saving yourself the hassle of having to disassemble/rassemble your kiln again. Place your element order by email or call 406-442-2521.

When should you replace elements? If your firing times are taking longer than they used to or the kiln is getting close to temperature but your still get an "ERR1" message, it's probably time to change your elements. The following symptoms are signs that your kiln may need new elements:

  • Your automatic kiln shows an "ERR1" after firing but comes very close to its target temperature.
  • The coils that make up your elements are slumped over and bunched up in the brick channels. 
  • You can see a visible break in an element.

How many elements make up a complete set? Skutt kilns are made of rings. With a few exceptions, Skutt kilns are made up of 3 rings and each ring contains 2 elements. With three rings and 2 elements per ring, a full set of elements would include 6 elements.

You will notice this is a Center Element. Your kiln has two kinds of elements: Top/Bottom and Center. The top and bottom of the kiln lose heat faster than the center. To ensure an even firing, Skutt has designed more powerful elements for the topmost and bottommost elements. If ordering just one element, indicate the location of the element that you are replacing. 

Includes: one Center Element, two crimp on barrell connectors, straight pins, one replacement porcelain insulator and printed instructions.

This is a Center Replacement Element for the following Skutt kiln models: 1018, 1018-3, 1022, 1022-3, 1027, 1027-3, 1218-3, 1222-3, 1227-3 and 1227-3 PK.

Other available Skutt elements are: 8-sided top/bottom, 8-sided center elements and 10- and 12-sided top/bottom.
