Can I use induction hob with crack on it?
I certainly won't tell you that your cooktop is OK to use (both because I have not seen it and because I don't want to be sued by your grieving family), but there is nothing mystic about this. Electrocution can only happen if you come in contact with an electrically conductive part that is not grounded (which includes water that is in contact with a metal part inside the cooktop). The fact that the glass is cracked makes it more likely that you, or spilled pan contents, could reach a dangerous part inside the cooktop, that is all. Manufacturers' instructions are generally very conservative.

Maytag electric cooktop popping breaker.
The problem is most likely in the element in one of the coils, if they are the tube type and look like pencil thick heating elements, they can develope a short circuit inside them. The actual heating wire is encased with ceramic filler and then put in that tube. The heating wire moves when it gets hot and can work its way to the case and cause a short. Unhook the power from the whole unit and use the meter to check the rersistance of the coils between the heating element and the case
