that is exactly what happened , some moisture got into the spark switches and is closing the circuit to the spark module causing the spark leave it off , it will have to dry off , dont use it because that could cause arching and shorting out of parts , leave it for 24 hours , unplug or turn off the breaker and let it sit and dry
