That probe that sits in the pilot flame is at fault. Remove and replace. Inexpensive fix. Make sure probe is in the tip of the pilot flame. If it does not stay hot enough, it will shut off the gas.

test thermosat for proper operation ie-broken wire-power if good jump stat and check if unit goes on if it does than stat internal problem or wiring problem and needs replacement or repair --if stat good check fan safety/high limit sensor if good would need to check and test thermocouple thats the tube that the pilot flame burns on may be enough to keep pilot burning but not enough to open valve for heat demand

If the EPRL light still flashes most likely the thermocouple has worn out. The thermocouple is a safety device which stops the gas from flowing. I will recommend to consult an authorized repairman to check the thermocouple and also the injector.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I would clean the Flame Sensor with a steel brush or steel wool.....
It is a steel rod with a white porcelain body attached to the pilot assembly with a wire hooked to in and it runs back to the control board .....
What it does is prove that there is a pilot flame before the control opens the main gas valve.....
It will try and do this about three times then lock out then when you cycle power it will try and start again.....
