We show that strong nonlinear electron transport in the ferromagnetic insulating (FMI) state of manganites, responsible for phenomena such as colossal electroresistance and current induced resistance switching, can occur due to a hot electron effect. In the FMI state, which we show is an insulator with a Coulomb gap, the temperature of the electron and lattice baths can decouple at high input power levels, leading to heating of the electron bath. Parameters of the hot electron effect model were independently determined via time dependence experiments and are in good agreement with the experimental values.
