Welcome to the forum

It would be a great help if we knew brand/model of the water heater.

Don't forget to check that little black manual switch inside the heating unit, near the electrical element. Drove me nuts one night until I woke up and remembered it.

If you give more detail it will help those that want to help you out. Where did he check the power? There is a rubber cover with reset buttons underneath. One button is for propane operation and one is for electrical operation. Check your owners manual on which side is which as memory ain't that good, but I believe the one on the right is the electric heating element reset. Mine went bad 2 years ago and it's an easy, inexpensive fix if your comfortable with simple electrical repairs.
