You will need to change the thermal coupling,, when it is lit look at it and make sure there is no water dripping down on it, but for now it just sounds like the thermocoupling

Gas water heater: burner doesn't fire, replaced gas control valve


Hello,Don't worry about the rust flakes as every burner collects then and is normal.The new control should click.Please check incoming gas pressure supply 3.5"WC natural gas / 9"WC for LP.Check it at the piolt tube with a pressure dial meter,I assume the water temp now is cold.Did you change the thermocouple also as this provides the power to run the control?

We dont think our cylinder is on we have just moved in and have no hot water


The question is? I'll assume you cylinder is the water heater, right?
On the heater (water) you will find or see the red controls and a sheet metal cover over a hole. Remove the cover and this is where you light the pilot light. Press down on the red dial and turn it to pilot. In that position you will be able to press the red button . Geyt a long match or bbq lighter, then, holding down the red button dow for a minute or so and place a match or lighter into yhe area where the lines go The flame will catch the gas and lite the pilot if yo simply move your glame around. When the flame catch on the pilot, continue holding the button down for sveral minutes until the buld the flame isheating gets hot. Then release the buton and turn the main dial to on. The main burner should fire up. If not, and the pilot goes out, repeat the process. The bulb in the pilot flame is a thermocoupler that shuts all gas off if it doesn't detect a pilot flame, so hold the button down longer. If the pilot goes out when you release the button, The thermocoupler is no good and needs replacing. Good Luck_Ned_
