Oven broke, why?

Why are both my ovens all of a sudden tripping their breakers?

The ovens are each on their own circuit, and do not share any conduit. They are Blodgettes, model EZE-1. 11kw, 3phase, 27 amps. Nothing else is tripping, but these are the only 3-phase units in my shop.
the top one starting tripping this morning, so we stopped using it, but a few hours later the bottom one started doing it. It's Saturday so my electrician is not available.
A new circuit has just been added, though it is currently switched off and has not yet been used.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
