There are little pins that hold the coils in place. They may need to be
replaced, or the coils may need replacing. You could call your local
pottery supplier and ask for names of people who service kilns, or ask a
reputable electrician. There's probably websites that describe how to
replace and repair the coils yourself. Try your kiln brand name and see
what comes up. I tried and got some interesting
info.--not necessarily about coils, I got sidetracked. Good luck.
