ISOLATE THE POWER TO THE APPLIANCE BEFORE OPENING
There are several electrical conponents that can cause an earth leakage, but usually there are temp control swithes shorting to earth, the internal of the componet brakes down and it is screwed to the metal chassis of the oven. When the temp gets too high this is ment to break connection, if it has went fauly it can pass current to earth causing your RCB to trip. Have a look to find the location it is usually a semi oval case with two terminals, you should have continuity through the two terminals as it is normally closed, check for impedance to the case with the component disconnected, is there is any conductivity, replace.
There are as I said before several things that can cause this, a faulty heating element is another, check them while you have the appliance open. Black Grey spots not carbon or food it should feel rough, or if not fully blown a small bulge on the metal. In order to do these test you will require a mulimeter, and some basic knowledge of electrics.
Hope this has been helpful

Kenmore duel fuel oven wont heat


I take it this will be an electric oven. If so the likely hood is that the oven element has blown and will need replacing. Normally when elements short they will trip the houses RCD (once only normally)

Why does my Candy oven Model FPP 406/1x trip the RCD in my fuse box after 3 minits warming up?


as an appliance engineer sometimes the oven element can be at fault, although this always the case, it could be the thermostat also as they are both interplay when the oven is heating up, they could both be tripping the RCD as the earth is detecting that electricity is becoming live due to a component leaking electricity.
you could try replacing both of them with caution (turning the electricity off in the house ect.. using safety equipment)

a good site to use for those components is the following;

Spare Parts Accessories for Electrical Appliances QuickSpares

usually if they don't have the item in stock on the website you can use the contact option and they usually respond pretty quickly and let you know if they can get the item ( most likely )

Oven not producing any heat


just the oven? then more than likely the element. if the stove eyes are not working as well, then your looking more at a sensor, thermostat, fuse, breaker, etc. almost always an element though

Hob on my hotpoint oven trips my RCD


It is either a faulty ring, or the regulator that controls it is faulty.
You really need a meter to test the ring with to be certain which part is faulty.
Hope this helps.

It might be that the breaker is overloaded and it's no longer supporting the load of all the appliances together.If you do not want to change your breaker you can still use your oven by switching off other appliances that is running while you are using the oven
