Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Does it trip as soon as you reset the breaker or does it only do it when you try and start the range?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
After it heats past 430°
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 11 months ago.

what temps are you setting the range on, I guess is what I am asking is it going over the set temperature or do you have it set on a high temp?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
If I set it for 430 and above it will trip intermittently
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 11 months ago.

I would change your breaker out and see if that fixes the issue, it seems the breaker is tripping after some time of amp draw, most likely it is a weak breaker and not the range. If the range were causing the issue it would trip immediately or on the first cycle of the range.
