Question about Ovens
Yes it can, especially if it is not dried out immediately, It gets into the plates and insulation and will cause your earth leakage to trip out. With the stove unplugged or switched off, use a hair drier or heat gun to dry out all the water,especially the plates as water seeps into the internal insulation and causes a short. If there are signs of rust, clear this off with a fine wire brush (remember to keep the power switched off). If you can, after drying out the stove, check for current floe between earth and neutral and earth and live to make sure that there is no chance for a leakage there - use a multimeter set on the ohm scale or a Megger meter. There should be no continuity.
