Check the circuit breaker for the oven. 220 volts are necessary for the heating element. 110 volts for the light and clock controls. The 220 volt breaker looks like two side by side breakers with their trip levers joined. Sometimes one will trip without tripping the other. Try resetting the breaker or better yet replace it.
A circuit breaker is a breaker that toggles as a switch, and to reset it you have to switch the toggle switch ALL the way to Off position to reset, then switch it to on.
Same thing if it were a GFCI style, it just has a 'Test' button on the body of the breaker, that button is usually a white rectangular button.
Some systems have a GFCI breaker that looks totally differnent from above... It's located on the control system itself, very similar to what you may have in your bathroom or kitchen of your home! It will have a 'Test' button AND a 'Reset' button.
A High Limit Switch, acts like a breaker, as it will trip when it senses a temperature greater that it is set for as a safe temperature. Once that temp is breached, it will trip.
So... Which one is tripping for you? What are you resetting to turn it back on?
if circuit breaker, it has nothing to do with the 100 degree temp you mentioned. If that trips,= electrical problem, either a short or overheated electrical appliance (internal wires) aging motor pulling too much current, loose electrical connections generate heat, etc.
if High Limit, then possible overheat of water? Many times, failed thermostat. I already know what you're thinking... But I never saw water get Hot! But... Many times that IS just the case , it's just you never noticed the water hot, and it has been cooling down when you saw it.
Check the circuit breaker for the plug the dryer uses. Open your house power panel and locate the breaker for the dryer. It will be 2 breakers connected together by a metal pin so when one trips it will trip the other. This shuts off 240 volts. Sometimes only one breaker will trip without tripping the other one. This leaves the dryer with 115 volts to work the rest of the machine but won't power the heating element. Replacing the breaker will fix the dryer.
Check your circuit breakers in the power panel for a bad breaker. The breaker has a pin connecting both handles One breaker can trip without tripping the other. This condition will only allow 115 volts to operate the controls and light bulbs but will not power the heating elements.
IF when the spa control calls for heat and it trips the breaker when the heater comes on then you have a bad heating element and it will need to be changed. Disconnect the power to the spa. Disconnect the two wires going to the heater and then turn the spa back on. If the spa stays running without the heater attached then that will be your source of trouble. New heater and you will be all fixed up.
Have you noticed what the outdoor temperature is when this unit is tripping the breaker? Does it seem to be at a higher outdoor temperature or at all outdoor temperatures day and night?
Did they check the run capacitor to see if it's good and the proper microfarads?
Did they check to see if the breaker trips when it's starting up or after it has been running awhile.
If it's tripping on start up then it's possible the next step is the compressor replacement.
If it's tripping after running awhile then it could be dirty indoor coil or filters,blower not running at full speed,low voltage, loose wire connection, points burnt on contactor and even a weak run capacitor.
If the circuit breaker tripped,then the unit is trying to work and the remote is certainly telling the unit operate, otherwise it could never trip the breaker if it did not receive a signal from the remote. Your problem may be with the outside unit that te compressor is stalled (having a hard time starting ) and this will cause the breaker to trip. You need a porfessional to diagnose if it is the starter control, or relay, or capacitor, or bad compressor, or bad terminals.
The issue is with the heating element of your dishwasher, it is withdrawing very large amount of power and thus, the circuit gets overloaded and circuit breaker trips. You'll need to check for any short circuits around the heater element. And, also the resistance of the heater element, it should be around 1.4K ohms to 1.8K ohms.

I would say you have a bad element in the bottom.If the water is cold and heat until the top thermostat reach it tempture,then switch the bottom element and then the breaker trip.So replace the bottom element.
This is a tough one to diagnose without seeing the panel. It's the main breaker or just the a/c breaker? The easiest diagnosis is to put an amprobe on the black wire coming off the a/c breaker (Harbor Freight about $12.) to see how much current it's drawing. It should be less than the rating of the breaker (shown on the end of the handle). Make sure the thermostat is all the way down so the compressor is running.This is a likely solution because a high current draw can be caused by anything from leaves laying in the bottom of the shroud to a compressor starting to go bad. If that amperage is lower than the breaker rating and it trip's it's probably just a bad breaker.Another cheap fix. I would have to assume the rv dealer tried this so we can move on but it is the best starting point. Loose wires anywhere in that panel can also transfer heat through the buss bars. Unplug your power source and tighten all connections. The panel won't get warm until its been on a while and heat is what causes the breakers to trip. Again I assume the dealer would have tried that but I'm trying to cover all options. The last thing I can come up with is maybe the RV dealer isn't putting the cover back on the panel while troubleshooting which stops it from building up heat. Without the additional heat build-up the breaker won't trip. The inside of the breaker is two metals sandwiched together designed to bend when they get warm. When they get warm enough (caused by the rated current flowing through the breaker) they bend enough to push a button to trip the breaker handle. Try these out and let me know if it works.
