A clue to what could be wrong is that you mentioned it took 10 minutes for the pilot to go out. It could be your gas valve. Get a technician in to check your gas pressure both before the gas valve and after. Have them check it as the water heater is running.

It needs a service. The jets carbon up and when they heat up they stop the gas getting through. If you take it to a Gas Shop they will charge you around 90-00 to service it and all they will do is blow it out with compressed air. If you can get hold of an Air Compressor with an Air Blower on the end you can blow it out yourself. Remove the Gas Hose from the back and place the Air Blower into the hole where the gas goes through and hold down the ignitor switch to open up the jets. Give it a good blow out. Once you have done that give the candles a blow as they eget dirty also. You will see a white dust more than likely come out of them. If you want to give it a good clean out remove the cowling and clean (blow out) the inside of the Heater. The cowling from memory has only about 6 or 8 screws holding it on. That should take the top and sides off. I can't remember if you can remove the lower vent on that model - if so it will only be either 2 or 4 screws. Hope this Helps.

I had this problem and oops, the gas intake was closed. check the door on the right side of the unit, and make sure the valve is turned to "open" .... here's the link for the online manual if you want it: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/hectors876/1004om.pdf

I have several of these heaters in my rent houses and love them. The most problem I have is not being able to ignite the pilot with the user control igniter. Remove the screws that hold the front cover in place along with the front cover. Hold the pilot control down and ignite with a lighter. Keep the pilot engaged until thermocouple is warm enough to keep pilot gas flowing. If it will light this way then you need to blow out the pilot orifice. It seems that every year I have to go in after the summer season when the heater is off and clean the pilot/orifice lines with high pressure air. I believe spiders/bugs/dust block pilot orifice when it is not in use. You can also tell that orifice is blocked when you don't get a good blue pilot flame with pressure behind it allowing the flame to submerse the thermocouple. If the the thermocouple is not getting enought heat it will turn pilot gas off for safety reasons.
