never had a lump either. probably caused by too much powder creating a small avalanche.
when that happened to me, i blew the part of and re-coated the part.

i used an infrared thermometer at first and now i just use the oven on light to set the timer.
set temp to 450*, when the light goes off, turn temp down to 400*, set timer for 15 min, turn oven off, open door, remove when cool.

I've cheated a little on a part that wouldn't fit in my oven. I needed to do my roll bar and didn't really want to go to the hassle of bringing it somewhere. I preheated the roll bar with a torch and got it as hot as I could and evenly heated as possible (an infrared thermometer helps). Once I got it around 250, I dusted the powder coat on and it melted on contact. The only drawback was it had a little orange peel becuase it wasn't hot enough. It was even a two coat, silver base and blue candy.
