I over boiled water in a pot and it went dry and then shut

Customer Question

I over boiled water in a pot and it went dry and then shut itself off on my Kitchen Aide KICU500XBL induction cook top.
Now it won't turn on. I have tried holding the reset button for 10 seconds and switching the power on and off several times.
A technician has just replaced two major circuit boards; the one in the middle near the back of the unit where power comes in and the main control circuit board where you turn it on and off and set cooking levels.

If the unit will not turn on and the boards have been replaced the touchpad on the actual glass top was damaged which can happen if you had a big spill over, high voltage can short out the low voltage touchpad very quickly. You will need this part to get that working again.
