Have you tried shutting of propane tanks waiting 30 seconds and then opening very very slowly?

Ok, I have propane to the stove, checked breaker and fuse, pressed the resets on the outside of tank, and still nothing. When I flip the switch for gas I still do not here the sparker trying to ignite, and I don't hear or smell gas coming out. Maybe it is a relay? Will check voltage when I get home tomorrow.

Here is what is "under the black cover" The rubber covers are to protect you from a shock. Just push right through the rubber circles until they are "in".

Not that the wire connecting the high limit switch on the left is burned out in the photo. That one the DC (or "on propane") one.

To check that you must remove the rubber cover.

You must also TOTALLY REMOVE power for a few minutes to reset the control board if you had a "no light" condition three times. Turning off the switch (with the red light) will work.

NOTE ALSO THAT: If the high limit switch is open or burned out the red light will NOT come on ever.

High limit switch is getting juice, gas valve is not. Must be the module I see in the wiring diagram. How do I get to the module? Is it behind water heater or do I look somewhere else? I want to test it to see if it is getting juice.

Bottom red wire on hi limit is not getting the juice, therefore no power to module. How do you fix this? 99% sure that is the problem, have taken everything apart and narrowed it down. Can you change just the high limiter?

Press the reset at the top of the high limit switch.

If that does not work the high limit switch must be replaced.

You could bypass with a jumper (Temporarily) to see if the unit fires normally (Make sure it is COLD so it is calling for heat).

If it does order a new one.
