SOURCE: glo warm heater
I,d suggest that you have either a case seal Damaged, allowing air into the casing.
Also possible fault may lie within the Flue air pressure Valve/Switch If applicable.
The heater/Boiler will have certain conditions to meet.
The Fan/flue switch ( Pressure switch. Will be designed to speed up the fan, before firing the main Burner.
As for the Noises, i,d suggest that the boiler is whats commonly known or reffered to As Kettling. Which usually indicates Overheating. This would cause the main-burner to distinguish as a fail safe.
Recommendations:- De-scale the heater, with a commercial descaler. Thoroughly flush the System. Then re-fill with required Amount Of Commisioning Fluid. i.e Fernox Or Sentinel et,c.
Also get the Fan/flue checked out for correct running speeds.

SOURCE: Pilot light won't stay lit
Look for dust and lint. Look for them in places where gas should be freely flowing. I had a similar problem with an Empire Corcho wall-mounted propane ceramic catalyst heater. First it was the pilot light, then the #2 ceramic mantle. After horsing around with the gas lines and pressure regulators and trying to re-aim the pilot, it all turned out to be dust and lint in the gas passages. A little dust bunny in the brass pilot tube gave me a pilot light the shape and color of a banana. One puff of compressed air, and I got back my razor-sharp pilot. And some dust in the chimney of the #2 burner kept it burning blue/yellow and blistering paint off the upper surfaces of the heater. A bit of cleaning with a shop-vac put that right. "Passive" heaters are very much prone to this sort of problem because they rely on convection currents (i.e. LOW velocity) to get the job done. Convection currents are notorious dust collectors, as in COBWEB CITY.

sounds like its not venting properly...it likely is shutting off on a "Spill switch" or "Vent safety switch"....check the vent/chimney first off.....also the pilot could be dirty..,..a lazy pilot tends to blow out easily....pilot should be blue and sharp,,,big enough to fully envelope the thermocouple

Testimonial: "I checked the pilot light and it's clean. I will have to check the chimney next week but thanks!"
You should the value there should be a pilot ajustment screw
some times it is hidden under another screw but should be close to where the pilot light line hooks to the gas value
