Gb5 question

Please donít answer this question with any answer such as : call Digitry. (Mia)

My kiln is suddenly dropping in temp. as if I turned it off. Does this sound like a thermocouple?

More info needed. Still power to everything? Mini fuse in GB blown? Relay activating but temp "dropping"? All elements working?

Everything seems normal except the temp is just dropping.

So the kiln temp is actually dropping and the gb registers that? That would indicate a loss of power, either to the relay, from the relay, or an element gone bad.

If it's not registering the drop, then I'd go towards a thermo problem or the gb motherboard has gone bad.
