DO YOU KNOW THE SIZE OF YOUR MICROWAVE KILN???????
There are 3 size Microwave Kilns on the market for retail use today. Many of you think you have a large kiln because the seller stated that but in actuality you only have a medium size. To aid you in identifying your kilns size, please refer to the text below which corresponds with the attached picture.
To determine the actual firing size of your kiln measure the platform portion of the kiln's bottom and not the entire bottom.

TOP KILN = Small (platform/firing base measures 3") will accommodate (3) 1" square pendants

MIDDLE KILN = Medium (platform/firing base measures 4.5") will accommodate up to (7) 1" square pendants

BOTTOM KILN = Large/Grande (platform/firing base measures 6.5") will accommodate up to (15) 1" square pendants

I hope the information provided above proves beneficial.


WHAT CAUSES HOT SPOTS IN YOUR MICROWAVE KILN?

There are generally two reasons for hot spots. 
1. You are not using a microwave oven rotating tray. Believe it or not microwave ovens can create their own hot spots and if your MWK is not rotating the majority of heat will transfer to a spot on your MWK hood.
Solution: Put the turntable back in or replace the microwave oven.
2. Not enough graphite coating in the hood of your MWK in that spot. In other words the coating was not evenly distributed.
Solution: Re-coat that area of your hood with the repair & recharge kit which includes graphite coating material as well as base repair material. http://www.designsbysylvanye.com/id66.html
