Default Please help me program my Jen Ken kiln!

I have been garaging and annealing my beads with a schedule I copied from another post but some beads have cracked and perhaps it has to do with my program. I have a program suggested to me that will work well with DH glass and silver glass but I just can't figure out the programming (just learning here)
I have a small AF3P Jen Ken with the 3 button controller. I only use Moretti Glass.

This is what I want it to do:

Garage at 890 and hold for 8 hours
Ramp up to 920 in 15 minutes and hold for 1.5 hours
Ramp down to 800 for over 2 hours
Hold for 15 minutes and off.

OK, this is how I programmed it but I am not sure I've done it right and I'd hate to make some beads and discover them cracked or on the floor of the kiln as puddles of glass

Ra1 = FULL oF1 = 890 Hld1 = 8:00

Ra2 = 120 oF2 = 920 Hld2 = 1:30

Ra3 = 60 oF3 = 800 Hld3 = 0:15

Ra4 = 0000

Did I program it right?

Sorry to hijack but can one of you make me understand how to move on to the next cycle when I decide I don't want to work as long as I originally programed? I hit the up arrow twice and it gives me the skip abbreviation but nothing happens after that to show me it has moved on to the next step. Am I being impatient and needing to give it a few minutes to do something or does it just keep showing the skip abbreviations? Many thanks in advance!

Assuming you have an orton controller, you hit the up arrow once and it will display the SSTP and then you hit the program button - it will display the step it is on - and then hit the program button again.

So it's Up, Program, Program.

If you have a Bartlett controller you hit the middle button untill it shows SSTP then hit the left button.

Huh.
I never knew that. (there's LOADS I don't know about my kiln)
I'd just stop the cycle, and reprogram with a 30min soak time and go to 'red1" again.

I'll try the SSTP next time.
