Are you sure that you put the pins on right? They have little projections on the bottom that turn the timer on/off as the cam moves through its 24 hour rotation. The little gear in the back is connected to the motor and because it is spinning that tells you that the motor is definitely good.
Check the breaker first and confirm that power is being delivered to unit. Then if power is confirmed, try the reset and make sure that power is now getting to the heating coils. If necessary, you can always jump the reset switch if it stays stuck.
Check valve is stuck,you will need have it changed or removed. if you remove it it will take about 30 seconds when you start it up after sitting for several hours to go in gear. Because it has to get back up to pressure. It was a bad desighn by dodge because the check valve collects debris behind it and it restricts the fluid flow.
Yes, a good place to start would be to run a burner brush through entire tube to make sure all spider webs are out, then blow through again. If that doesn't cure it, double check your position of burner tube in chamber. Sometimes if it's moved into chamber too far, it will tend to back-up flame in to tube. I've had some that I re-installed and was sure I put it back exactly where it was before, but had to pull burner tube back approx 1/8"-3/16" to get a proper flame. Make sure it's centered in chamber as well.
IF no gas comes and the piolet is lit then the gas valve is stuck. You can purchase a seperate gas valve and replace it. If it is cost justified ,you will have to determine. As far as I know, one cannot disassemble and repair the gas valve as you cannot purchase the parts for it.
The thermocouple is probably bad. Since a thermocouple is real inexpensive, I would suggest replacing it first. If you are still having issues, it's the gas valve and it needs to be replaced. The valve is expensive and usually costs about $90 to $150.
Are you using a single lever faucet? The install guide does indicate that you may need to reduce the input from the cold water side to ensure that water stays at a consistent temperature (see page 7 of the installation and service manual). Also, remember, this is a SMALL hot water heater. So if you're running for any length of time at full output, it may not keep up with you (see page 8 of the service an installation manual). I found the manual online at http://www.airwater.biz/images_templ/bosch-water-heaters-ae3.4-manual.pdf.
