Hey all,
I’m new to this forum, and very new to electrics of any form.
Not sure if I’m even in the right place to ask these questions but I gotta start somewhere.

Im a part time knife maker and need some help with my Heat Treat Oven.

Everything is built and works to an extent.
When I turn the power on, the PID controller powers up and the temperature instantly starts rising. My set value is 100°c just to test the build and so I can test the accuracy of the controller.

The temperature of the oven just keeps rising past the set value, and eventually trips out at around 352°c.

I can’t figure out why it won’t stop rising.

any help would be great.


I’m using Heating Element Coil AC220V 3000W / AC110V 750W Heater Wire 7.2mm*800mm
As my heating elements, I’m using a solid state relay, I got a 1300°c thermocouple for it and a ceramic block to connect the wiring to the element.

You’re likely to be asked for a schematic. Can you supply one?
