Princess Stove

I have a three burner electric Princess stove. Every once in a while the burners turn off. I don't know if it's something in the stove or the 110v breaker. It's frustrating to have the stove shut down inb the middle of a meal. I checked the web site for info but found nothing.

Older circuit breakers just shut down sometimes because they get to hot. Easiest and least costly thing to do is to get a new 20 amp breaker and try it.

I have one of those combo electric/alcohol stove tops, and the electric stove tops do the same thing for me. I am not tripping the circuit breakers, they just go off and back on.

The Seaward “Princess” Electric Stoves have Limiters (thermal cutouts) in the burner circuits, to prevent overheating; and utilize 1,100 or 1,200 Watt elements.

A single 1,200W element draws 10 Amps, and requires a 15Amp 120V Breaker. Two elements would draw 20A, and require a 25A breaker; and three elements would draw 30A, requiring a 35 or 40 A breaker.
