Heat strip keeps tripping breaker after running for a few minutes

Breaker must be 2 to 3 times of running amps of a/c or heater whichever is higher. If breaker fixed minimum3 years back, better to replace. In heater, clean heater strips by a blower and also check for loose contacts. Sometimes weak strip element, it may happens. Replace heater element. Thanks.

My heater is one year old but this year every time I plug it in it trips the fuse after running for approximately 30 - 40 mins.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
I will assume, your heater is around 1100 to 1500 watts. For example if it is 1500 watts, you cant really share the heater with a TV or stereo on the same circuit.

Feel the cord, and if it feels have to much on the circuit...If you live in a real old home, they where not made to handle the big of a heater.

and it may take 30 to 40 min to trip the fuse

Electric immersion heater keeps cutting out

Sounds to me like you have a bad thermostat. You should be able to give a model number to any local plumbing supply place and get one for replacement. make sure power is of the unit before replaceing.

Breaker tripping on electric furnace.

First, how old is that breaker and are the connections all clean and tight?  A warm breaker is normal.  If it hot or buzzing, that is another story.  If the breaker is more than a few years old, it may pay to invest in a new one.  They do wear.  If you have a connection which has come loose or is corroded, it will trip the breaker, arc at a connection point or even cause a coil to fail.  Dirty connections heat up and actually back off the holding bolts to the point of failure or to tripping the breaker with arcing.  With the breaker off, inspect all connections from the panel to the unit.  You may get some surprises.
If none of this turns up a problem, inspect the actual heater coil, you may find dirt in there which is causing a problem or the unit itself is failing and touching a grounding point.
