Sounds like your thermostat is stuck . My reset wouldn't reset either. Turn off gas and switch and check with ohm meter you might find the gas side is open. I had to replace mine a month ago. Works fine now,hope this helps

Yes, if they are tripped, you just push in on the round part of the rubber cover.

You still have not answered if the water is currently hot inside the heater form the electric heating element.

So is the water hot inside the heater....as of right now as we speak?

If the water is already heated from the electric heating element....the propane is NEVER EVER going to come on, as the thermostat will not allow it turn on the propane until the water inside the heater drops to a certain temperature.......and NEEDS to be heated.

I have tried depleting the water in it and turning the electric side off.
It still will not cycle on the propane side

OK. Remove the rubber cover from the pic I posted above. Underneath, you will have two hi-limit ECO thermostats. These Emergency Cut Off (ECO) switches are built in with the thermostats.

The left one is for the 120 volt AC heating element and the right one is for the 12 volt DC DSI/Propane side. They are not interchangeable.

Both have two wires going to them. Make sure the wire connections are good, as this can sometimes be a problem.
