Why does my stove keep flipping the breaker When I turn the breaker back on the stove burners will not get hot and the oven will not work when i turn on a burner the clock will come on. what do I do?

Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service.

It sounds like the wiring is either short, damaged, or crossed. The breaker flipping off is to protect an overload of power....similar to a built in surge protector.

It sounds like one half of the two pole breaker that feeds the stove is tripping on an overload. The reason that the burners do not get hot is because they are 240 volt elements. The clock circuit voltage is fed from the other half of the two pole breaker that is still working. In the back splash of the stove there should be a removable plate that has fuses behind it. Remove, the usually two screws that hold the plate on, and look for a fuse that has blown. These fuses protect the individual burners from short circuiting. If there are no fused blown replace the cover.
Next thing to check is the connection of the range feeder to the breaker. You might want to get an electrician to do this. What he will look for is a bad connection from the feeder to the breaker. If this connection is OK then he will check the connections at the stove receptacle and where the cord connects to the stove.
If you decide to go the electrician route, tell the electrician the size and make of the breaker (probably a 40 amp) and the size of your electrical panel in amperage. This way they can bring the correct breaker with them and you will not be charged extra time for them to go and find one.

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.
