I'm having trouble with the model # provided. If there is no switch directly behind the knob that turns that element on then it has a control board that is most likely behind the back panel about midway down on the left side. If it is this setup you will need to replace the board. If it has a switch directly behind the knob then replace that switch. Make sure unit is not plugged in when looking for or replacing parts.

As soon as I turn on the selector to warm or hot it will trip the breaker but it will run with no heat

It is not uncommon for the heat element to break and short out on a dryer. The element looks like a giant spring and when it breaks it can hang down and touch the frame of the dryer causing a short and tripping the breaker. I suggest you have a service company check it out.

GE Profile JT912 keep tripping circuit breaker

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

. Top element
If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

2. Infinite switch
Another reason, why the element would not start, might be a defective infinite switch (located behind the control panel, with the burner knob on its shaft). Replace the switch if found defective.

Rheem 50 gallon Electric Water Heater 81V52D C repair ideas needed

It could be element shorted to ground through steel tank, so don't touch tank when breaker is ON.
Or you have undersized 12 gauge wire and 20 amp breaker and the heat has loosened breaker on the busbar. Breaker trips when heat exceeds breaker limit. Jiggle breaker and listen for crackling sound.

To restore hot water now:
Turn off circuit breaker, and open top cover then Push in reset button on top of heater to restore functionality. Put back insulation and factory cover.
To fix water heater: test and replace bad element.
If problems continue

Unit powers up, but trips breaker when I try to heat anything in it


Something is drawing too much current. With the breaker off, check the connections inside the outlet (on the wall). You will have to remove the outlet of course. They should all be tight. It is possible that the outlet is bad - they are cheap, might be a good idea to replace it at that time. Also, check all the connections on the stove, especially at the fuse bar. The breaker box/breaker may also be the problem (loose connections, worn breaker). The element MIGHT be the problem, although they usually pop breakers right away after start up. Also, look for anything touching, including the element wire touching the element casing.

If you have an ohmmeter, you could disconnect the range from the wall and turn on the oven. Measure the resistance across the two power leads (not the neutral in the plug). That will give you an indication of how much power the element draws when it's cold.
where R is the resistance in ohms, V is the voltage (240 V), and I is the current.

Unfortunately, the element may have a resistance that's too low only when it's hot and this might not test that.

Good luck in solving the problem......

Electric dryer runs , turns but no heat.

You most likely have a bad heating element. When they break, the ends tend to touch the side of the element housing. This causes a short, tripping the breaker. Remove the back panel and replace heating element.
