If I had to guess, I reckon the element has gone. If you are not good at fixing things you need to find a dealer.

The element gets moisture in it a trips each time you put on.
try using it on gas for a few days may dry out and be ok.

I have done that with a couple of fridge's after a long layup in the winter & it worked a treat, sparky said there's a powder inside the element that can absorb moisture.

When on gas you should be able to hear it from the outside.
Don't need 240v.
