take off the flame spreaders and soak them overnight in kitchen detergent and water. Change the water and boil it for 10 minutes. Put under the cold tap and them scrub with a pot brush into all of the holes. Rinse, dry and replace.
If that doesn't work, you need a registered gas engineer.
Just fixed this problem and repaired the corner of the Ceran cooktop.
Disclaimer: These cooktops run on 220V and will kill you if you don't know how to work with electricity. If you're unsure, get some help.
The boiling water slopped out of your pot, and went over to your controls (knobs) and went down the shaft and into a component call "Infinity Switch". The water caused the switch internally to weld one of the two internal sets of contact points into a permanent position. The fix is to replace the "Infinity Switch" that the boiling water spilled into. The Infinity switch is the component that the control knob slides on to.
In my cooktop one of the infinity switches failed and appears to damage the adjacent switch. Mine actually caught on fire and damaged the wiring and the connector. Hopefully you are better off. Since they were in such close proximity I replaced them both. For $20 you might consider the same. I replaced both to be safe and they were $21.47 each.
My cooktop has 4 elements 2 small, 1 large and 1 combined (small and large) surface. A large element was definitely damaged and possibly a small element. I ordered both. I mention this in case a multi-element was damaged on your cooktop.
You will need to contact either Jenn-Air or someone. Since you can't see an exploded parts list online, you'll have to use the schematic. It is in a plastic sleeve and it stuck to the side of the ventilator housing underneath the cooktop.
When you wire the new part in, make sure you have the wiring correct or when you turn it back on you will burn up the new part.
Dirt. Spilled oil, grease, milk etc. act as isolator and prevent contact between burner and casing (mass). You need to clean up burners, scrub all the dirt and make sure their seats are cleaned too (brass elements below burners).
Sounds like you got water into the ignitor switches on under the knobs. Sometimes it takes 48 hours for this to dry out. Or you can pull the knobs and use a hair dryer on to dry out the switches. Personally I just advise pulling the plug and wait. This is a common issue with gas cooktops and can also happen with liberal use of cleaning products sprayed in the know area.
Most probably dirty jets. If water was spuilled, there is a possibility of rust forming on some parts.
Low flames are usually due to inadequate gas supply, due to dirty jets and burners. Often rust forms on the top burners in the little holes, causing slight blockage - clean the holes with a needle properly and check.
