SOURCE: pilot light wont lit up
Change The Thermostat Cause If Your Getting Gas But The Water Heater Doesn't Detect The Heat It Will Close The Valve. When Lighting You Hold The Button Down For About 30 seconds so the thermostat will detect flame and stay lit. Check To Make Sure The Thermostat Is Where It Should Be. Heres A Picture Of What It Will Look Like.
You Can Replace Them If Need Be Will Be Available At Sears Or Home Depot. Also They May Sell Them At other Local Hard Ware Stores.

"Pres sw open" means there is insufficient air flow. either the vent if blocked, or the blower turns too slow/ or died.

If you are not seeing a spark at the pilot assembly where the pilot flame lights, then it is probably not sparking in the right place. You may have a short in the wire or a cracked porcelain ignitor, causing it to spark elsewhere. If you can remove the access panel, you may have to relight the pilot manually with a butane lighter. To resolve the issue of the flame blowing out, make sure your vent outside has a cap on it and that the vent is not partially blocked with a bird nests, etc. Hope this helps. Douglas
