    Water (and soap) will not hurt the coiled burners in any way. You can even soak them in the sink.

    If, by 'circular things', you mean the coil burners, they don't need to be cleaned. If something spills on one, turn it on high until whatever it is has burned off. If it's a glass top stove, you clean the burner area with the same stuff as the rest of the glass top.

    If you take the top of the stove off, those round things often just pull out easily.   They are breakable and sometimes need replacing.

    Yeah, what anon wrote. I have always been able to simply remove the burners and soak and clean the discs under it quite easily. You can reconnect the burners by simply popping them back in. Everything is made to slide in and out, easy-peasy.

    If the "circular discs" are solid and part of the surface of the stove like this:   

     don't worry about it, they're completely sealed.  

    If they look like coils you can use a damp metal sponge or steel wool, but if you're worried you can actually "unplug" and remove them entirely from the stove and also gain access to clean underneath.  See video:
