There's a tiny reset button near the upper left of this picture. The top end of the purple wire is attached to it. Open the compartment and press that button (it will barely depress) then have someone turn on the hot water at full force. The burner should light.
When you put the panel back on, make sure the air intake pipe (attached to the copper elbow just to the right of the center of the photo) is lined up with the hole in the panel so that you're not blocking air going into the heater.
