Where is Atwood water heater reset switch?

Can someone tell me where the Atwood water heater reset switch is in a 2016 3171? We can't find it and have searched the forums to no avail. Thanks!

The water heater had been running fine since Thursday. We had it on propane at first and then electric. This morning, no hot water. Water is in the tank. (We're on hook ups.).

You don't say what model you have, but maybe this owners manual link will help:

Here's another:

If your water heater still works with propane (check it), you can rule out the thermal protection fuse. Otherwise, I don't believe there is a specific reset button to push. Try checking in the fuse panel on your converter charger for the water heater 12v fuse on the lower section and doing a reset of the 110v water heater switch above.
Please give us an update, thanks.

Thanks for the manuals. It's an Atwood gc6aa-10e. There doesn't seem to be a reset switch. Whatever is wrong with it is going to require a technician. Bummer. Cold showers in December. BRRRRR.

It doesn't work on propane either, Sagecoachdriver. I had already reset the circuit breakers. We're checking fuses now. Thanks.

Have you checked the thermal
fuse, it's the wiring in the plastic tube?
Mine is the same as yours, but I added the adjustable thermostat.

There is also a 2amp fuse on the circuit board in the upper right of the W/H compartment under all the wiring. Probably to protect the board.
