If you are tripping a 50 A breaker, you have major problems. First check the breaker, to make sure it is in reality, tripping at 50 amps. As they get older they can suffer heat damage, and will trip at lower currents. How old is it? Does it visibly look like bad (burnt, etc) Is it loose on the mounting buss? Burnt smell? If everything checks out then go to the oven and look for loose connections. There will be heat where there is a 50 amp current draw. If the oven is suspect, I would seriously consider dumping it as soon as possible. This is serious fire safety hazard. Again, loose connections. Check all of them, both AC+ legs, Neutral, and ground.

It is probably an element that is causing the trouble, as it gets hotter, the insulation resistance breaks down, and if there is a weak spot or hot spot it causes the trip to operate.
I'm afraid it is a question of elmination, trying different functions, until you isolate the problem.

You have to be aware that the self -clean function whilst very convenient, tends to heat up the oven tremendously. Depending on the age of the oven it can be detrimental to it.
I am assuming in your case the lower oven has suffered some damage due to the heat generated during self clean. Generally the first one to suffer is the heat sensor or the heater. If the circuit breaker is tripping then the heater may have fused or the wires feeding the lower oven are shorting due to insulation breakdown.
Not sure how much comfortable you are with electrical repairs. May have to test out a few things before deciding whether to buy the components yourself and fix or get someone to do it.
You can checkout the location and description of the parts in these diagrams. Please turn the mains power off before attempting anything.
Please rate this solution if you find it useful else post a comment. Please note that if other fixya consultants have given you some suggestion then I cannot see this at this stage. cmmiuser01.

Hi, welcome to FixYa! my name is Shaun. I hope i can help you out with your question. Your main house breaker is tripping over 180C because of the amount of current your oven is drawing. Keep in mind that an oven is capable of pulling up to 1/4 the amount of amperage of your total house current capacity, up to 50 Amps. This is assuming you have a typical 200 Amp main breaker. Add this in with your heating/air-conditioning, up to 30A, if electric, your water heater, 25 A if electric, and whatever lights and appliances you have plugged in and turned on, you can imagine how quickly those amps add up when your oven is on. Your oven breaker won't trip because you're not exceeding 50A on that circuit, however if your total household load is exceeding 200A, your main will trip. Also, breakers lose efficiency over time. Sometimes they can drop current capacity by as much as 25%. So your best bet is to replace your house main and see if that fixes your problem. Hope this helps out. Have a good day!
