Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of you situation.

Can you post a picture of the gas control valve here? the model number of your unit would also be helpful. You can post a pic here by clicking on ADD FILES next to the SEND button

There is a reset procedure but it's different for each model gas valve. So I need to know what you have before I can give you the procedure
