    My stovetop won't come on for two days now.I checked the circuit breaker & it was good. Today I reset it just to be sure. No luck.
    I had just turned on a burner yesterday & wiped the rest of the stovetop off with cleaner and the whole stovetop shut off.
    The burner that I was going to make an espresso on hadn't been on but seconds when this happened.
    Any idea what could be done?
