Question about Electric Electrical Supplies
You said it yourself. when an electrical device is running it produces amps, with every amp is a unit of heat. breakers are heat sensitive as well. so you might want to consider a new breaker. newer breakers are made out of better materials that are able to displace heat more efficiently. or check to make sure the screws on the terminals where the wires go in are tight. if there is a loose connection that will increase the units of heat traveling through the termination. or, worse case scenario, like when all hope is lost. splice in some more wire, correctly, emphasis on correctly, and relocate the breaker. perhaps use insulation around the breaker, non flammable of course.

SOURCE: electric furnace wire heating up
you should have a 3- conductor # 6-3 copper wire running to this 60 amp breaker @ the furnace to the panel if this is not the case you should replace this with a # 6 as of now as it is a fire hazard as it is and needs to be fixed at once , # 10 -2 wire is only good for 30 amps and a 60 amp breaker will not trip under fault condition and you could have a fire , if you need further assistance on this let me know and i will try to help
