What blew the curcit? Was there any rewiring?

no, nothing out of the ordinary. the only thing that happened was I took the front knobs off to clean them
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 7 years ago.

Did you get water in under the burners? Unplug the unit if it is still.

It was just the knobs I don't see how I could get water under the burners

my ass hole husband who had no answers for me now tells me I probably did get water under the burners, so I guess you have answered my question
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 7 years ago.

If the water is what blew the curcit it may have damaged one of the switches. With the unit unplugged remove the knobs. Use a hair dryer on low and dry the switches under where the knobs were. This can take quit a wial. You can leave it unplugged over night it you need to. Also you can still use the cook top with the power off.
