If it is fed by a double breaker then you may have to turn it off and turn it back on again. If it still doesn't work it may need the thermal cutoff replaced

We have changed the element and is still not working.


What water heater do you have? Question posted under BW 120V 6 gallon electric.
Element is found on electric water heater.
Igniter is found on gas water heater.
So now it get's confusing what water heater you have.... for example some 6 gallon RV water heaters have both electric and gas. And troubleshoot for that is different than electric water heater.
Copy following link for electric water heater troubleshoot resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html
Does tank have 2 elements or 1? Which element did you change... why did you change element before replacing thermostat? What symptoms were you experiencing before changing element?
Is this a new heater? Was tank full of water before power turned ON?
Add a comment and describe problem in detail.

50 gallon tank producing no hot water. Clicked red reset button, but no results.


You posted under electric water heater.
If upper element is burned out, or tank is not receiving electricity, then water heater will have no hot water.
