I have a problem with an AEG Competence oven - the main oven heats up OK but after a few minutes it trips the power. My cousin is an electrician and he checked the circuits and things and suggested the thermostat might be the problem. I replaced this today and still have exactly the same problem. The heating element was replaced around a year ago - I have taken it out and it looks fine, no sign of cracks or warping or anything. Is this likely to still be the problem? Any other suggestions would be appreciated!

It's a small separate fuse box from the main one, that just has the kitchen circuits on it. The RCD on it trips out.

Sounds more like a faulty element than a thermostat, it's a common problem.
