Call an electrician to check the combined current draw for all of the elements been used together
the breaker capacity should be around 5 amps more than that
he can also check for proper installation and any faults

AEG FM 4500GR-a PNC 941177468: Keeps tripping circuit breaker


Possible there is short in the oven heater. You will need to check individually the circuit for short or leak into the circuit. Also if the trip is on a ELCB then this is due to an earth leak. Please check if there is leak on the wiring or a possible poor earth/ground connection at the outlet.

Breaker in panel tripped and won't turn back on


You may have a short circuit to ground fault in the electric cook top. Divide and conquer. Unplug the cook top and try to reset the breaker. If the breaker resets, then you have a problem with the electric cook top. If it doesn’t, then the problem is at the electrical panel side. Either problem will require a qualified technician’s assistance. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Electric shock from cooktop, didn't trip breaker,


Where did you smell the smell was it from the fan switch. turn the power off and take the screw out of where the fan switch is and check the wires to the switch and the switch itself. sometimes the jennair cooktops have issues with that switch. let me know how it goes

I was roasting a chicken in my Maytag Cooktop when I heard a loud buzzing and a "pop", all of the power in my house went out. Something had tripped the breaker. My husband reset the breaker but my stove...


there is a short for sure, sometimes when the heating element burns out and melts, it touches the metal inside the housing causing a short. inspect the heating elements in the oven(top and bottom). the loud buzzing sound is what a shorting out heating element makes as it melts like a weldin rod, usually because of using tin foil(not recommended)

Are you sure the breaker didn't trip on one side? If one leg of the 220 is out, the lights and controls will appear to work, but the elements will not heat up. Make sure you have 220 to the appliance. It's also possible that you pulled a wire off somehow when changing the broil element.
