SOURCE: pilot light keeps going out
Change the thermo-couple.......$5-$10 at any home improvement store. It is a copper wire that is connected to the gas valve/control unit on the heater. Remove it by unscrewing it and bring it into the store with you to make picking it easier.

SOURCE: Water Heater Won't Fire up
does the fan come on? this has to happen before it will even try to start if it doesn't your problem goes farther into the unit,, normal pracess if the fan then the ignitor then the flame, It could be in the circuit board most people that have gone with the tankless don't clearly ask the question but that is normal, but if you could clearify the procedure of what it is doing to this point i could be more helpful to you---- e-mail me what is happeing diffrent then what it use to do email@example.com

AO Smith uses the Honeywell ICON gas valve with green indicator light.
Some models use White Rodgers Intellivent with a row of indicator lights.
The gas control blinks the error code:

Thank you for providing clear description of product:

Question is not clear.
Do you want instructions to replace valve or want a service manual to test out the parts?
Open following link to help identify gas valve and download possible service manual that applies to that gas valve.
It is usually recommended that a professionally trained person replace the gas valve.
If you have the intellivent gas valve, then it usually has identifying marks on side of valve, or call AO Smith with the model and serial number from label on side of tank.
Turn off gas and disconnect gas line from side of valve.
The manifold tube and wires are disconnected.
The gas valve unscrews counterclockwise.
If you want more details as the project requires, add a comment with specifics and that sends email that I will answer.
