It may be something as simple as a crossed or frayed wire. This does not necessarily mean major repairs. Since it is electric, UNPLUG the oven from the wall. Then, take the burner rings out and lift the stove top. You should be able to lift it from the front edge, since it is hinged at the back.
Check the wires under the burner. If these wires are in good shape and the connections are solid, move the stove out from the wall. Remove the back sheet metal panel completely.
Once again, check the wires running the entire length. Make sure all wires running from the knob console to the rest of the oven are not frayed or missing the insulation coating and that the connections are complete and not loose.
If you find frays, some electrical tape should fix it just fine. Loose connections can usually be crimped with a pliers, or if it's a loose electrical connector type connection with a screw, you can remove the connector head and wrap bare wire around the screw, then tighten it down to secure.
If you find nothing wrong when you open it and inspect the wires, then it is possible it needs major repairs. If you are getting a burning smell from ANY electrical appliance, please leave it unplugged until you get it fixed. Nobody likes a house fire in the middle of the night.

SOURCE: Oven won't heat up
Ok, this is a definite element malfunction. you can confirm this by using a multimeter and connecting the meter to the terminal points on the element. once connected, turn on the heating cycle and if you can register a reading and the element dosen't light or produce any heat, this will confirm element failure and you will need to replace it.
Please rate and god bless:)

If any appliance trippes the breaker there is a problem that has to be looked into, no appliance should trip MCBs or RCBs (trips), ISOLATE THE MAINS POWER BEFORE REMOVING ANY PANELS
A visual inspection of the rear is required, also the electrical mains connections. Look into this do not use the appliance until you have resolved the problem, it may turn out an amount of food had been stuck beside one of the heating elements, and causing a smell, better to be safe.
Let me know if you require any further assistance.
