Question about Rheem MSR50245 Marathon Electric Water Heater 50 Gal
Turn power off. Open covers and inspect for burned parts.
Test elements. Marathon takes specific element, and does not use generic element from hardware store.

Hi , when a breaker trips immediately, that can indicate a problem in the circuit. But the circuit stays on for a bit , then trips, so there is a problem with the heater. Could be that a thermoastat or heating element is shorted out. You can replace these items yourself, I would check the heat element first. Or there may be some corosion residue around the heater terminals.
