Default Kiln is too hot

dug out the kiln. JenKen cube-4.
It ran too hot. rods across kiln furniture would sag.
Called JK, got new change.
So now trying to just reset to the new temp.
Any tips for getting the temp right? I've got it set for 860 now as my "new" annealing temp. a 5" soft glass rod will still sag about 1mm when bridging across 2 supports.

any pointers? Anyone had this issue ever?

Laser pointer temperature gun has lots of variation and the temp drops quick when door opens, so not too accurate.

I've been having fun looking for a post answer here but getting lost/distracted in this vast forum.
peace to all.
