Question about GE JBS55 Electric Kitchen Range
This is a very serious hazard if the circuit breaker trips just when the oven begins to heat up. The circuit breaker could have become weakened and needs to be replaced ASAP. Have an electrician check and replace.
The oven could have been placed on too small a circuit breaker OR the total number of appliances on that line has pushed the circuit breaker over it's limit. The Oven draws a huge current and may be the straw that broke the camels back.
Check to see what other appliances are shut down when the breaker trips. See if you can place some or all of these on another line.
Leaving the Oven on the one circuit breaker. This will hopefully prevent the overload situation that is occurring now.
If it still trips... get an electrician in there fast!
Hope this helps!

2 common, possible problems. 1 - there is a "short" in the plug - easy fix - replace either the cord or plug - not expensive. 2 - bad control board - not so easy, not so cheap. Is it brand new, used? Also, it could be a bad "internal breaker" - not easy!
