That is a very subjective question however I am assuming what is meant by the power trip is the breaker tripping. If it is a new install and this is the first few times it has been used it is probably an undersized breaker. If it has been operating properly for a while then it is probably one of the phases touching the other phase or earth. You did not state you have a CGFI so I am assuming you do not.
On appliances like this only the heating elements use 220 volts. things like the clock, fan, etc use 110 volts. That is why some things work and other do not. Start at the breaker, sometimes a double pole breaker will have 1 side tripped, but will look perfectly fine. switch the breaker all the way to off then re-set. If nothing changes follow the power to the appliance remove the panel and look for some fuses, check to see if any are blown. Also sometimes the microwave will have a separate power source even though its built in to the same appliance. So that's not always a good symptom to follow.

Many ovens have a bi-metal thermal fuse-also called a thermal limit switch-that protects the oven from overheating. The oven thermal fuse trips when the temperature in the oven gets too hot. After the thermal fuse trips, the oven won't heat. If the thermal fuse trips after the self-cleaning cycle, try resetting the fuse by turning off electricity to the oven, removing the exterior back panel, and pushing the reset button. If the fuse tripped during normal operation, replace it. If the problem persists, the electronic oven control board might require replacement. Reset the thermal fuse after replacing the control board.
If you were using the oven at the time it is likely that a short circuit occurred in the element causing the circuit breaker to trip. After switching it back on the oven wont work. You probably need to replace the element. The switch may have tripped for another reason. If it did when you turned the power back on the electronic clock/timer generally reverts to the auto. function. You need to set the clock/timer back to manual so that the oven will work.
You need to ascertain that the oven is actually getting power.To do this, you are going to have to remove it from the housing and remove the terminal cover where the the cable comes in, and check for power there.
You may find that the terminal block has charred due to a bad connection and the wire has burnt away
If this o/k, and you are getting voltage there, then the problem is obviously within the oven itself, could be a timer fault.
If you have no voltage at terminal block, then the problem is between the terminal block and the main switch.
Hope this helps with your problem.
First make sure you didn't trip a breaker. You could have power for the electronics on one side of the 220V and that is why the clock still works. Turn off the breaker and then back on even if it looks on. If it does this again you have a sever problem that will require a service call. If the breaker is tripping it could be other than the oven and if so a new one will work ok unless itsin your wiring.
If this helps you please ratre me accordingly Good luck.
