SO you happen to know the make and model of the water heater??? Normally the bypass valve would be located on the water heater or behind the water heater. That would apply if this is an Atwood or Suburban, you would have an outside access panel and under the panel would be the pressure relief valve and on the bottom a drain plug. IF you go inside opposite of the outside access panel and look in that area that is normally where the valves are located. Many will have a hot, cold and bypass. The hot and cold should be open or valve handle running with the pipe and the bypass closed or valve handle against the pipe. IF the electrode is not sparking at all there could be a safety tripped as well so please get me the make and model of the water heater and I can help you out more if needed....
