Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

How long has it been since the spill?

Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 5 months ago.

Never mind I see you say its been several months, most times when they dry out they will go back to working but if not that means you shorted the electrode on the burner when you spilled whatever it was you spilled on it so the electrode will have to be replaced, if you would like to try and do it yourself let me know and I will try and give you instructions to do it, otherwise you will want a tech out to replace it for you. If you want instructions and/or part numbers please give me the full model number of the range. If not please read below:
