If it trips out after a few seconds then then you need to rewire it

if it trips out as soon as you turn it on then a cable has come loose and is touching either another cable or the metal casing in which case if you cant find it you may need another oven

it should be on a 32amp breaker with 6mm cable if its a long distance from mains to oven it should be 10mm cable covered by a either a 32 amp or 45 amp

You either have a bad element, loose wire or a short.
Start by checking the connection at the back of the stove.
Then look inside the oven to see if there is any visible evidence of damage to one of the oven elements.
I would suspect it is the bottom element that is giving you trouble.
Otherwise, if you have bad wiring to the range outlet, this could be difficult to track down.
If this is a new installation, your fuse/circuit breaker may not be high enough amps.
You may need to increase the size by installing new fuses or breaker depending on which you have.
I think a 50amp breaker would be standard, but you may need to use a 45 amp or greater. Just be sure your wire to it is heavy enough.
#6 wire would be better for a double oven situation.

SOURCE: my oven keeps tripping the electric

It will be the ring element, short circuit. This is the element that runs around the fan behind the backplate in the oven. It can be replaced by isolating from the mains, remove the 4-6 screws hold the backplate on. remove the two screws on the element brabket and one screw holding the element in position at approx 4 o' clock. Be very careful removing the element at the bracket, ease it out very slolwly so as not to detach the spade connector and wiring. A replacement can be obtained from ebay, espares etc or neff direct via there website (link to spares shop). Make sure the wiring goes back on the new element as it came off the old one. Replace screws and backplate and it should be sorted.
Hope this helps

It's tripping because to much amperage is going to it, this tripping is a safety to let you know you have a problem.

Oven keeps tripping mains

If it is a electric oven, then the chances are it is the oven element that is causing the problem.
What is probably happening is that as the element gets hotter, the insulation resistance is breaking down, and causing the trip to operate
Hope this helps.

Zanussi zbf260x built-in oven keeps tripping out

Probably due to a fault on the oven heating element. Check continuity and earth with a multimeter if you can but it's odds on you will need a new heating element.
