Anyone replace an ignitor for an Electrolux gas cooktop?


Our rental has the EW36GC55GS and it was working fine until recently when I heard the ignition no longer works but can be lit manually with a lighter as the gas flow was fine. The fuse was not tripped and the outlet it is connected to still works fine so it is definitely the unit itself. Looking closer, it appears that one of the renters got a little happy with our pot filler and the ignition box was full of water (picture below).

I'm guessing that's the cause since the issue is isolated to the cooktop but I cannot find anything online on how to replace the thing to know for sure. Has anyone had any experience with these things and how to replace? Is there a way to check if the damage was confined to the ignitor only?
