Disconnect it, open it by removing the screws on the bottom and rinse it thoroughly with tap water. Let dry completely then reassemble and test it.

I would use RO/DI to rinse and add a rinse with rubbing alcohol. You want to remove all traces of salt and other minerals from the electronics. Dry thourghly before trying it. A gas oven with just the pilot on is ideal to completely dry it.
