The valve should be parallel with the pipes to be open so it seems you are still in bypass.

If the valves are in the correct position there may be a switch on the outside box (where you can hear the gas) it may be hard to see, you will have to look around.

If they wonít turn to this position, they are where they are supposed to be for normal operation now and you have a problem other than how the water is flowing.
