1st unplug stove from wall and see if it is stove or electric to stove. If short in stove will have to open stove and find short. If no visible burnt wires will have to meter components. Look at where cord goes into stove that is a place I find burnt wires.

Electric I meant power from breaker to outlet. Unpluging stove will tell it if circuit or stove.

Unplugging stove will tell ypou if stove is problem or not. If breaker still pops with stove unplugged than problem is in wall or related to that circuit. If breaker only pops when stove is plugged than problem is with stove.
