Hot Water with propane only

I have no hot water when my hot water heater is in the electric use position. But when it is in the propane position, it heats up just fine. My wife tells me that earlier she was able to smell some sort of electrical smell. Her sense of smell is much more discriminating that mine so I believe her, but was unable to locate where that smell might be coming from. Any thoughts? Can the water heater be unable to heat water with electricity but still function with propane? The breakers are all on, but is there any breaker or switch elsewhere - perhaps near, or on, the water heater? Or do I have to replace the whole thing?

You can heat the water by just using propane. May be others can answer the electrical issue.
