You didn't say what size your main breaker is. I would say you probably need to upgrade your service to a larger size.

I'd agree. The loads of an electric stove and electric heater might be larger than most, but your main circuit must be rather small for the main breaker to trip with only those loads. Are you sure those are the only things up and running when the breaker trips? No other lights, dishwasher, sump pump, garage door opener, etc.?

More info is needed here. Service size? Is this a new problem? Does it take a while to trip or is it immediately when you turn on the stove? If the service size is adequate I would hire an electrcian to look at the connections in the panel at the main breaker.
