Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The spilt water is likely causing the igniter electrode, electrode wiring or spark module to jump spark to ground under the cook top instead of between the electrode and the burner. The best thing to do is to let the water evaporate. Once the water has evaporated, the unit will most likely operate normally. To speed up the drying, light the surface burners with a match let them burn on low setting for a few minutes and this may speed up the evaporation. 

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

We have done the above and it has been five days since this happened and it has not started working. Shining a lite through a hole in the top cover it looks like something burnt down under. Could it have fried the spark module or some other component? Is there a reset button somewhere? How do we remove the top cover to view under the burners. Thanks for your help; I will wait to hear from you. Bob

A:

grandpaking: The water could have shorted out one of the spark igniter switches on one of the gas burner knobs. The spark module should only power up when one of the burners knobs is rotated to the light position. I added an image below with the instructions for removing the top. Disconnect the power cord and turn off the gas supply before servicing.

None of the igniters work. How can I test the spark module? Is there a reset button? Thanks for the instructions to remove the top.

A:

Grandpaking: There is no reset button. Are you sure the unit is plugged into a working wall outlet? If unit is plugged into a working wall outlet, the voltage can be tested at the spark module across the RED and WHITE wires. Be sure to turn one or all the burners to the light position before checking the voltage at the spark module. The Red wire is 120 voltage suppy and the White is the Neutral.

Thanks for your prompt response and the wiring diagram. How do I test the output of the spark module?

A:

Grandpaking: If you measure 120 volts across the red and white wire and the igniters are not sparking, the spark module is bad.
