have you got an up to date fuse box(consumer unit/board)???

it sounds like youve been putting too much water in your oven when cleaning it!!.......this can simply blow a fuse, or trip an MCB on your board, and will continue to do so, untill your oven dries out....thats assuming youve been cleaning it recently.

if not, your oven needs tested.....it may be that your thermostat is on its way out......when you say your oven is on a plug, do you mean it is your
full oven on a plug..or is it hard wired into a cooker connection unit, and you may use your plug to operate the clock/timer etc..??
assuming your full oven to be powered via a plug, you may need to look at the socket you plug int...ie.....is it a spur??......are there more than one spurs??.......does your oven blow the fuse at a specific time whilst your opperating your oven??....................your not very precise in your question......hope this offers some hope...
