To schedule a repair please have the following information available when calling:

For Kilns:
Manufacturer
Model Number
Voltage/Phase listed on the kiln
Amperage
Voltage and Phase supplied to the building

For Wheels/Other Equipment:
Manufacturer
Model Number

This information can generally be found on a metal plate attached to the side of the kiln or the side of the control box on some kilns and wheels. If you cannot find a name plate on your kiln we can still identify most equipment with photos or in person.

Typical time to change elements in a medium sized kiln is approximately 1 1/2 - 2 hours NOT including travel time. If your kiln needs brick repair or rewiring work the time required to change elements can be longer.

To schedule a repair please call 314-963-0180 or email Ryan at Ryan@kruegerpottery.com  

Please note: Krueger Pottery Supply does not offer free onsite estimates for repair. Drive time as well as estimation time will be billed at our normal repair rate of $75 per hour.
