Victor for Model Number EE2H40RD045V

ANSWER Victor, You will need to check the circuit breaker by checking the water heater with an clamp on meter and see what the amp draw of the water heater is and if it matches up to the circuit breaker. If the amp draw is lower than the breaker and the breaker is tripping then the breaker is bad and would need to be replaced.
