This actually the fourth time that the element has been replaced because it burned out. In three of the four previous outages it caused the glass top to crack. I have had certified repair folks look at it on multiple occaissions and they all claim not to be able to find any reason why this one element consistently goes out. Lifespan of the replacement elements have ranged from 90 days to a year. Worst appliance I have ever purchased.
Thanks for your help
