Electrical - breaker

The breaker kicks when I put on the element & oven of the kitchen stove. It is a 40 breaker. What could cause the breaker to kick? Thanks!

Something wrong with the oven!
Have you used them together before without any problems?

If this combo has worked fine before, then it is a shorted element or wire touching the frame somewhere.

Is it just a standard circuit breaker ?
Or is it a GFCI ?

Do both of the elements work fine, when on there own ?
