thats what it sounds like to me you have a bad thermocoupler...as far as being under warranty alot of the components usually have bear minumum warranty the tank itself will still be under warranty based on your info... the thermocoupler are inexpensive and fairly easy to change most home depot or lowes building centers carry these in the water heater department....good luck
