GE wall oven tripping breaker on temp rise

I have a GE JTP15C0D1CC 30" wall oven. The oven raises in temperature then blows the circuit breaker ( 300'F the first time). I have done a test with first bringing temp up slowly to 240'F still working but the limit switch for the fan should have come on ( according to the wiring diagram temps for fan limit switch are open 240'F; close 205'F), but did not. Then raised temp to 300'F, originally that temp is when the circuit breaker would trip when started and left to run a normal warm-up, still working and fan is now on. Ran at this temp for awhile raised to 305'F still fine. Set temp for 425'F tripped breaker at 390'F. Circuit breaker is unkown year, I thought it was new when I installed. Do you think it is the oven or the circuit? I think it is the oven causing an overdraw?

What size breaker? Is the breaker firmly seated? It is a dedicated circuit isn't it?
