I have tested continuity on both hot legs to ground and to each other and figured out there is no short from breaker to appliance. the heaters will turn on and work properly for about 15-20 mins and then trip the breaker.  the wire gets warm and the breaker is hot.  could it be a bad element causing wire to heat in turn breaker to heat and trip??
