Confirm that the correct element has been installed. The elements for the FUSION 2 and 3C are not the same as the element for the FUSION 3.
Check that the air intake filter (located on the housing in front of the extrusion trigger) is clean. A plugged filter will reduce air flow and heat transfer and could cause the element to burn out. Remove any blockage in the filter with a soft brush.
