Make sure propane is on and getting to your stove burners ok, first, then try switching it back on. If it fails to ignite, shut switch off and try a couple of times, if still no ignition, get back to me.

First try taking the safety cut-out (looks like a diode in a plastic sleeve) out of the circuit by disconnecting both ends, one from thermostat, and other incoming power wire end, then just connect the female incoming spade connector directly to terminal on thermostat where it came off. If that fixes it, replace the cut-out.( thing in the plastic sleeve) If that doesn't fix it, try cleaning electrode ends well and retry, if no luck, replace the electrode assy. The electrode is also the flame sensor.

Your power vent water heater with electronic gas control went under water.
I suspect the gas control valve is bad, and possibly the ECO and FVIR sensors shorted.
Repairs might require replacing gas control, eco, fvir, igniter, and then clean burner and combustion parts.
Open following link to identify typical gas valves: and possibly read service manual for troubleshooting that model.
Might be easier to replace water heater

SOURCE: I have an atwood g6a-7e water heater. The thermal fuse is bad. i need to know what temp and coltage the thermal fuse for this heater is. The numbers on the fuse do not mach any thing on the web.
ANy RV dealer should stock that item . You can temporarily by-pass it for use but be aware you have no safety should a flame-up happen due to spider webs etc getting in to burner tube.
