Exclamation Help programming Paragon kiln! Pleeeez!

Hello experts,

I just picked up a used paragon kiln and I need help programming an annealing schedule. I don’t need advice on the schedule itself, I just need help programming. The company I bought a kiln from years and years ago actually had a “programming for dummies” cheat sheet that came with the kiln. Literally: press this button, then this button, etc.

Anyone willing to help me Pretty please

If it is a 3 button controller, each segment has three components and is:
Ramp Speed
to Temperature
and Hold for X time.

For example, my first segment is to ramp as fast as possible to my garaging temperature, and then hold that temp for 12 hours, so it is

Ramp Full
to Temp 920F
and Hold for 12 hours.

My next segment is my final hold, and the third segment is my slow ramp down. Mine has a 4th segment I rarely use, so it is all zeros.

When you are done working, you override the 12 hour hold by skipping a step. I achieve that by poking the middle button once, and the left button twice. That starts my final hold. I have a cheat sheet if I can find it.

Paragon's website has PDFs for just about everything under the Support tab.

You can look up the controller directions. I have two paragon kilns but the Sentry controllers are different models and work slightly differently. The online manuals are available for download. I have to look the newest one up every time to remember how to skip a segment!
