    I'M CONFUSED. THE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT INDICATING THE UNIT HAS IGNITED THE LP AND IS WORKING FINE. PLEASE EXPLAIN.

That light in the switch should only be on momentarily while it is igniting, and then go out when everything is ok. If light stays on, it's to alert you that for some reason, the burner did not ignite, such as propane is off, or some other reason it didn't ignite. If the light stay out, then the burner should be working properly.

Water heater will light but only stays lit for about 5 seconds then shuts off


sounds like the flame sensor isn't detecting the flame. It could be dirty or broken.

It's normally dirty so that could be fixed easily. Look in your owners manual to see where the flame sensor is (it usually looks like a metal rod with a bend on the end and just one wire coming out the bottom).

Turn off the power, remove the sensor, clean it with emery cloth and replace it, turn on and if that was the problem it should work just fine now.

Try cleaning the electrode that sits in front of the flame, as well as adjusting it,if necessary to make sure it is in front or at least in position that it senses the flame well.
