Re: after cleaning- the cooktop did shortcircuit- after...
Since it is a glass top. there must be a crack on the surface. the cleaning liquid short out the elements. and it will stay that way till th liquid dry.
use a hair dryer to heat up the surface and see if you can see the crack. it may be a hairline crack.
once it is dry, it should turn on, unless there something else having a problem.
pleae rate the asnwer if it help in any way

You may have a short circuit to ground fault in the electric cook top. Divide and conquer. Unplug the cook top and try to reset the breaker. If the breaker resets, then you have a problem with the electric cook top. If it doesn’t, then the problem is at the electrical panel side. Either problem will require a qualified technician’s assistance. I hope this helps. Good luck.
There is an internal thermal circuit breaker. The breaker has gone bad. On-line of Electrolux find a service manual of your model to locate the breakers location. Contact a local appliance parts store for a replacement also ask for heat sink gel(very small amount). Trip the circuit breaker, remove bad one, clean the space, apply gel and replace it.
Water probably did get into the switch(es). The best bet for a fast fix is to pull the knobs off and use an air can (like for blowing dust out electronics) to blow down into the holes. This will dry out any water in there and should allow you to use it again. To be extra sure, blow out the switches and leave the knobs off over night. In the morning the knobs can be replaced and the cook top should be good to use. Hope this helps!
Pull the unit away from the wall and inspect from rear. However, if all is fine, perhaps you simply overloaded the circuit that once. Were you running any other appliances (overhead microwave) at the same time?
