Yes it can, especially if it is not dried out immediately, It gets into the plates and insulation and will cause your earth leakage to trip out. With the stove unplugged or switched off, use a hair drier or heat gun to dry out all the water,especially the plates as water seeps into the internal insulation and causes a short. If there are signs of rust, clear this off with a fine wire brush (remember to keep the power switched off). If you can, after drying out the stove, check for current floe between earth and neutral and earth and live to make sure that there is no chance for a leakage there - use a multimeter set on the ohm scale or a Megger meter. There should be no continuity.

Oven does not heat

Nothing Works, or the Oven / Range / Stovetop Works Only At Certain Times:

1.Home breaker flipped or the fuse blown?Possibly an electrical surge has flipped the breaker. Check your breaker or fuse box and replace or reset as necessary.
2.Power cord plugged in?Grab the plug and wiggle to determine a good connection.
3.Power cord damage?Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for covering damaged wires.
4.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

Moved Kenmore electric oven (2 yrs old) and now neither the oven or stovetop heat up. The clock is set.

This may sound silly, but go check your circuit breaker and flip it completely off and then back on. Sometimes it does not completely trip and your clock only needs 120 volts to work which you have, but the heating coils need 240 volts. If you have an older house that has a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers you could have a blown fuse.

The lock is displayed on the clock and dont no how to get it of

If you're talking about the oven and stovetop being locked so you can't cook, on mine you usually hold the oven or stovetop light button for about five to seven seconds and it clicks off. I have a Kenmore, but I know sometimes they're similar. Also, if the power go outs, it automatially goes into lock mode.

F7 Error code while cleaning stovetop

Usually a stuck keypad. Try pushing all buttons at random several times each including cancel. If that does not correct it this time you will need a new touchpad and ERC.

Glass window cleaning!

You have to remove the inside skin of door, pull door up and off of hinges and lay on floor to make this easier. Then you remove clips or brackets that hold the glass to door and clean. Very simple, but time consuming, mainly lining skin back up on reassembley.
