Infinite Control Switch - 240 Volt - Jen-Ken
This 240 volt Infinite switch fits all 240 volt kilns that currently have an Infinite switch. The knob may also need to be purchased if it is not a Jen-Ken Kiln because of different mounting styles. It has a max amperage of 15 amps. The switch has high (full power) and low 7-20% power) settings and numbers in the middle so the switch will cycle on and off to maintain a percentage of power. The knob is sold separately.
Note: When replacing a switch look at the pushon connectors, they need to be clean and not rusty and have a tight electrical fit when put back on the switch tabs.
MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF / UNPLUG THE PLUG LEAD
The switch is labeled with codes for wiring, suggested wiring as follows;
- H1 & H2 are for the elements (does not matter which element end connects to which code)
- L2 is for the white power supply wire
- L1 is for the black power supply wire
- P is for both wires for an indicator light
Always observe the switch in operation after wiring to make sure there are no arcs from any of the wires if you have removed too much insulation. A fire or electric shock is possible if improperly connected.
Always consult a licensed electrician if you are uncomfortable with this process. These guidelines are posted only as a courtesy for suggested wiring.
