Any of you guys know the effect of a few wet breakers on electronic equipment? We came across a panel that had water in the bottom of it. Coincidentally, the oven electronics died. There was also lightning at the time of the storm. Can water on a breaker or bus do this to appliances?

Only way I could see is if the water got into the contacts for the oven breaker, corroded them enough that it would arc and conduct intermittently . . . that could end up toasting whatever electronics were connected.

Seems a lot more likely that the lightning did it.
