I have a 30 gal water heater model number BFG1F3030SNOV it

Resolved Question:

I have a 30 gal water heater model number BFG1F3030SNOV it was shut off for work on the venting and now I cannot get it to relight. there is a note on unit that refers to resetting the thermal unit mounted on inner door "consult owners manual". I do not have the manual any longer. Could this be the problem? If so how do I reset it?
