It would appear that the tripping of the switch has caused some kind of short within the cooker. I would look for the continuity of the heating element.
Most likely the wires leading to the heating element have burnt and will need replacement. If you are comfortable with attempting a DIY, well and good. You will have to open the back panel to access the said wires. It should be easy enough to identify..it will be the wire leadingto the heating coil.
If , however, you are not familiar with these kind of things, I would recommend getting a repair guy to do it for you.
Cheers and good luck with the repair!

From symptons, I would say the fan oven element is faulty, more so if the fan is working. Remove inner rear panel of oven and see if element gets warm, let it run for a minute, switch off and feel if element is warm, if not, then replace.the element.
Plz rate this solution.

To change the bulb is quite easy, the glass lens screws off, give it a good soak and clean whist popping out to buy a new bulb, otherwise you won't notice the difference. Note the bulb is a special oven bulb, if yoo can't read the old bulbs rating it's probabily a 25W 230/240V rated for 300deg C - try Wilko's around £2.50

I have heard of people doing that and getting away with it - such is the capacity of the modern domestic ring circuit. Certainly no one should be doing it and no one with electrical knowledge would condone or recommend such a thing as if you didn't get away with it, it could burn your house down without blowing a fuse or tripping any safety devices.
The cables carrying the current to the sockets and light fittings traverse many flammable things between the power outlet and the electricity meter...
In an emergency you could fit a plug and use the cooker but never, ever more than one boiling ring and one simmer ring OR the grill OR perhaps even the oven if it is a conventional oven.
If you do decide to take the chance I advise you most strongly never to trust anyone else to operate the cooker and never to leave it unattended...
A large boiling ring is typically 1500/2000 watts and a small simmering ring is typically 800/1000 watts. I can't tell you what the consumption of the other equipment might be but it should be easy to discover as the manufacturer might have a downloadable manual on the website or you could try googling replacement heating elements.
You should have a cooker outlet installed as soon as possible.
