      A breaker trips because the power drawn through it is excessive. the breaker heats up and releases to prevent fires. Any incorrect path of electricity, such as a wire touching the grounded body of the appliance or running electricity through the water because the heating element is broken will cause a good breaker to trip. Have an experienced plumber check it out.
