Question about Kenmore Ovens
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.
