If you tried to turn the phone on while it was still wet it's probably dead.
One thing you may want to try is take the battery out and leave the cover off. Then place the phone in a zip-lock bag full of rice. Take the battery and do the same in a different bag. The rice will help absorb the moisture and could possibly save your phone. ONLY rice will work, anything else ie; bread will only make the problem worse. Give it 24 hours then take the phone and battery out and try to boot them back up.

Hi, If you have fuses on the stove have them checked and/or replaced with new ones.
You may have shorted out something when you made it wet.
Also check main power breaker if tripped. 115/230 volt breaker.
Hope that helps.

Nope, it's not the carb. The plug is wet and probably black as well. Wet plug and lots of smoke means too much oil in the mix which is where the problem lies. Get a compression tester and look at the pressure reading; anything less than 90psi means the piston ring is stuck and needs to be replaced/cleaned.
