does the breaker go immediately? if so, there are some wires touching, kind of hard to do with a bad knee... if you have an electric griddle, place it on some blocks or wood and turn it on low until you can get under to take a look. Worked in Alaska, just make sure it is on low and not too close. It should work as a temporary fix... good luck, hope the knee heals well!!!
