Where is the pilot for this water heater?

I'm not getting hot water at my business so I checked for the pilot but I cannot locate one. I opened the brown cover too but there's nothing. Where is the heat source? I'm very puzzled.

That appears to be an ELECTRIC water heater, no?

I'm moving your post the the "Water Heater" forum.

Indeed electric, I just learned.

Just checked the breaker box and everything is on. Water heater switch is on too. Is there anything else I can check?

What is your skill set for working on 240VAC wiring circuits?

Do you own and know how to use a multimeter?

Common to have element problems but, as Trooper said, this is 240 volts so troubleshooting it is not for everyone.

I do have a multimeter but it looks like a job for an electrician.
