Why does an element burn out suddenly rather than wear gradually?
Contamination with a foreign material such as kiln wash burns out an element.
The number one reason a new element burns out is a loose element connector. So read the instruction sheet that comes with replacement elements. It includes information on tightening the connectors. The instruction sheet contains a wealth of information. Read it twice before starting to work on the kiln.
