I agree if you can see the pilot and the burner is not coming on check your gas valve.If you have the valve turned to on and still not lighting the burner you will need a new gas valve....

SOLVED! Newbie issue. DH and I figured out that we simply were not waiting long enough for the water to get hot. Everything was set correctly and the pilot was fine but we just had to wait about 20 to 30 minutes for hot water. We knew it took a bit for the water to heat up but did not anticipate the wait time to be approximately 30 minutes! We were thinking more like 10 to 15 minutes. Lesson learned!

glad it was just a newbie mistake.
the WH actually heats up faster on propane than on electric.
you can also use both at the same time, if you have electric hookups, for faster recovery.

yea, if you'd mentioned the time issue, we would've of told you 20-30 minutes for a fully hot WH.
