Have you checked by-pass at rear of heater to make sure all valves in proper position for normal operation? What type of flame are you getting while heating, is it nice and blue, and not jumping too far off burner and roaring?

    The click you hear, is it just one or 2 or do you get a bunch of sparks at electrode?

SOURCE: atwood rv water heater model G6A-8E heats water to

Normal causes for that would be by-pass valve not in proper position, or defective, allowing cold to mix with hot, or thermostat not touching up against tank properly, or defective. Do you know where that thermostat is?
Look where the black foam cover is, with white letters, below pressure relief valve. One is lettered ECO, other THERM. If you note where the wires go, so as not to mix them up , and pull them off, then peel back the foam cover, you'll see 2 little round discs, that are held against the tank by a small spring. They need to be checked that they are in there properly and are up against the aluminum tank.

SOURCE: Have an G6A-8E Atwood water heater. It Starts fine...

If it has the little thermal cut-off in power wire to thermostat (has a little plastic jacket over it) try removing it, and connect female spade from power wire, directly to male spade on thermostat, and see what happens. Also, make sure electrode is positioned in flame good for flame sensing properly.

The yellow is caused because the flame does not have enough oxygen. Per your explanation that is being caused because the exaust is not working. Fix the exaust problem and it probably will begin opperating properly.

Have an G6A-8E Atwood water heater. It Starts fine and shuts down after a couple of seconds. I can see the diode in the control board continue to spark after ignition I replaced the igniter.
