Sorry for the long delay, I see no other experts have responded.

Most water heaters have a bypass valve, it is normally located opposite of the outside access panel, so you would have to go inside oppsitie of the outside panel and pull some drawers or a false panel to get at the valves. Sometimes you will find a hot, cold and bypass valve. The hot and cold should be open or valve handle running with the pipe, the bypass valve should be closed or valve handle running against the pipe.

When you start the water heater the flame should be running, if the flame is not going then there might be an issue or you tripped the high limit it no water is in the tank...

IF you still need more help please get me the make and model number of the water heater, should be on a sticker under the outside access panel. Most are an Atwood or Suburban.
