Try another load, a healthy one such as a toaster or coffee maker on the same circuit (preferably the same outlet) to see if the breaker is at fault. Conversely, you should try the PC with an extension cord, in a known different circuit srviced by a different breaker. 
For whatever reason, breakers don't seem as durable as they once were; in a new home, two of ~20 failed when new.
If you establish that it is the PC causing the fault, new power supplies start at ~ $20 (on line-dealers charge way more) and it is a fairly simple procedure to replace it.
I suggest you take some snapshots of the guts of your machine after exposing the innards and remove the sick supply and physically compare it to those offered on eBay and elsewhere.
The most important parameter will be the total power output of the supply, its rating in watts; as in 450W. You can safely (and it is advisable) to step up in power when replacing these and the cost difference is minor. i.e.; if your current supply is 350W, go to 400 or 450 watts.  The new supply will run under less stress and probably live longer.

MET8665XS00 will not turn on


Check to see if there are any terminations from the breaker to the range...could have come loose. You will probably need to check the voltage @ the breaker & make sure it is feeding out. Also pull you range & check the back terminations for tightness.

The stove made a popping sound and the circuit breaker popped.i reset the breaker and it popped instantly.


Since you have a gas kitchen range, finding the problem should not be that difficult.

1. Make sure all switches are in the off position. Then reset the circuit breaker. If it didn't trip, then turn one knob on at a time (and then off) until it trips.

2. If the circuit breaker triped with all knobs off, then it would have to be something that is always on like the 12V transformer.

Hopefully, this wiring diagram will be of help.

My Fridgidaire FEF366BCC just popped my breaker


This sounds like a main control problem. More specifically like one of the relays is shorted. You will need to acess the main control and carefully inspect it for any burn marks. If you don't see any disconnect the main power supply wire going to the main control. Then plug it back in if it trips the breaker the problem is in the power cord or wiring from the cord junction to the main control. If it does not trip the breaker the problem is the main control.

No electrical power


You must find the reason the main breaker is popping ...

I'd start by unplugging everything and remove all breakers. Turn the main on ... does it pop? If it pops here look between the breaker panel and the end of your cord. Turn the power off - reinstall the first breaker - turn power back on. What happens ... keep doing this until the main or individual breaker pops - investigate that circuit to find your short.

If you get all breakers back in with out popping anything ... start plugging stuff back in. Something is shorting somewhere.

Let me know what you find please.

thanks

Hitachi RAS09UH randomly pops 15A circuit breaker


Two things that you could check: 1) If you have access to an ampmeter, determine if the unit is drawing over over 14 or 15 amps, 2) replace the suspect circuit breaker in case it is beginning to go bad. Breakers only trip for overcurrent conditions or failure of the breaker itself. If it is pulling close to 15 amps, then it could heat up over time and trip.

Dryer tripped breaker--shotgun blast sound


You may have a wire burn off the element and fall down to the base frame and cause a direct short. Turn you breaker off, remove the front and inspect for such a scenario.
