I am not sure about your particular heater but the thermocouple on a full-size gas water heater is often the cause of a pilot failing. It is relatively inexpensive to change (or mine was). It is a simple metal tube with a wire that is located near the pilot to tell the burner that it is ok to come on because the pilot is lit.

Piezo ignition combustion tripped


It sounds like the thermocouple is going out. That's the solid copper line that the pilot heats up telling the gas valve when to open and close. You could try to replace it or pull burner from under heater and using a dollar bill clean the tip and replace. If its not completely out, this should do the trick

Pilot light lights and stays lit until you turn the temp up. Burner ignites for a few seconds and then everything goes out and you have to wait about an hour to relight it


Sounds like this is the gas regulator giving the the problems, i would call a local plumber to service this . gas and flame is very dangerous.

How do I light my Rheem water heater if my peizo ignitor switch isn't working


Remove the burner access cover under the control valve. Press the pilot light button (gas control) and hold it down. At the same time, light the pilot. Continue to hold the lighting button for a few seconds until the thermocouple heats up. Release the button. Twist the gas control knob to the ON position, and the burner should fire up after a few seconds. Replace the access cover. Good luck.

Often, this is the result of a restriction of exhaust gases. This type of hot water heater must be adequately vented, (per installation specs). I found this out after taking a number of cold showers. :^( Two years later, and still counting, no more problems. :^)
