So, my sintering oven went down today. Been going for almost two years pretty steady without any issues. The door goes up 'almost' all the way like it normally does, but instead of heating up and then the door completely closing all the way. The dam thing doesn't heat up at all. CAP said get some new heating elements. I did, $1,500 later but I don't think that's the issue. I'm thinking a fuse or thermocouple. I pulled the current heating elements, didn't really see much wrong with them, sure there was a slight green hue near the contact point, but didn't look like it would cause it from complete shut down. Not sure really, never had one of these...porcelain ovens seem much easier to diagnose. Anyone else run across this same problem?
