How often should the relays in a glass kiln last?

A number of factors determine relay life. The lower the amperage going through the relay, the longer the relay will last. Long annealing times add wear to the relays, because the relays cycle often during holds and slow cooling segments. Heat can shorten relay life. Relays tend to fail sooner in hot climates than in cold. Loose connections are a source of heat. Push-on connectors attached to a relay must be tight. A push-on connector that has lost its spring tension can cause a relay to fail prematurely.
