If the elements 'look' okay, they probably are. The 'infinite control switch' is probably the problem. With out the use of a meter, it's guess work. Unless you can see a connection problem.

I've an EW 71 with exactly the same problem! Thought it was the element but then noticed that there were two elements to the top oven - so very unlikely that both would go at once.<br />Tested to see if the switch was the guilty party by turning it on using the upper oven switch and indeed both elements heated!<br />If yours is doing the same then it's the switch....<br />... So how does one replace the switch?<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

The grill element should not 'blow' by just touching it - it should be earthed. The elements do gradually disintegrate over time & the inside wire element either fractures or touches the element casing causing the mains to trip. Sometimes this makes it trip just once & then stops working. Replace the element - not usually any fuse in circuit with this. Often held in by 2 screws adjacent to the element at back of oven and conections via Fast-ons- Rick
