The sensor for the thermostat is probably going bad or has bad connections. It is (or thinks it is) heating up fast and therefore shuts of the heater.

Check your thermostat and see that it’s wired correctly, it should be as followed for this particular unit; R-W-G from the thermostat terminal, and R-W1-G on the units terminal strip. Also check and make sure you have gas to the unit and make sure the switch to the gas valve is in the “ON” position. If all of the above is correct and working, you could have a bad igniter, or a have a flame rollout, or high limit switch tripped.
Hope this helps

Pilot lighted furnaces have a thermocouple made from disasimilar metals that when heated create electricity to actuate a relay that alows the gas to flow to the furnace.
When the thermocouple gets coated with carbon from the pilot lights constant burning it acts as an insulator and keeps the thermocouple from getting enough heat to generate electricity, a very good safety factor.
What you have to do is locate the thermocouple it should be located over the pilot light, you will see a gray substance around the thermocouple it will be hard like cement, take a knife and scrape away as much of the gray material as possible then sand the themocouple with a medium sandpaper until it shines, use one of you wifes emery boards, this should solve your problem.
