Double Oven Tripping Breaker.

Last year around this time I replaced a subpanel in a home. Original panel was a Square D QO series, I replaced it with a Siemens panel, as well as replaced the feed and upgraded from 60 to 100A. Anyway, The double oven was originally on a 40A 2-pole breaker. I kept it on the same size breaker, but fast forward a year I got a call that the breaker keeps tripping. What would be the best thing to do first? Turn the oven all of the way up and clamp-amp the conductors or replace the breaker? Something else? Thanks for your help.

I would clamp-amp the load before replacing anything. I would also check the torque on the breaker, where the conductors are terminated.
