I think the email should have greetings in the beginning and few informations about the subject that we work on after that introduce brief about the problem and what we need help for . Then ask about suitable time for meeting to discuss around the solutions
Finally thank him for help us.

I think the best way to ask for help is be kind and a little polite (depends of the situation).
I mean, we should start with a short greeting. Then tell him the problem and why his help is so important, so we can use someting like "Your job is amazing" or "you have strong skills on.." Finally we have to be flexible and thankful, so one way to respect his time is offer him some days to do it and finish with "we really apreciatte your help".

First thing that I should do is to introduce myself, add some greeting phrases to my mail, then I should explain my problem and say clearly what kind of help I need.

If you need a help from somebody, you have to start with a nice greeting, explain the kind of help that you need and what can the other person help you with, be specific for time, duration of meeting, take that permission that you need and show your appreciate and grateful for other person that provide the help.

I think the email should be brief as much possible as it can. using kind and vivid words to clear your request and help is very important. asking about whether that person can help or not without any pressure is very important and polite too.
