This sounds like you have a problem with your pilot. You can check this with a small mirror to see if their is a spark when you turn it on. If you have any soot build up on the pilot that will stop the spark and keep it from lighting also. If you have a short on your pilot wire this could be the problem also. I hope this helps, good luck.

Part one - The 'whoosh' or 'boom' at ignition. If those sounds describe your start up your jet(s) are clogged along the gas manifold. Follow the pipe out of the gas valve down to where the gas is shot into the heater. Those bronze ports have a small opening and spiders like to nest inside this area. Turn them out of the manifold and inspect them. You should find those closest to the ignitor are clogged causing the delay and then boom of ignition.
Part 2 - Have this happen enough and the roll out switch / fused link along the bottom of the heaters service panel will open up and disable the heater. It will look like a black rubber tube about 1/4 diameter by about 2 inches long -OR- a white ceramic block about the diameter of a quarter; either will have 2 wires to it and it will be 'close' to the manifold and jets you need to clean out. If you have a way to read resistance across this switch remove the wires from it and check it. If it is open it will need to be replaced.

Unless there is water running out of the inside it is always repairable. You can start by pulling the burner tray and cleaning the unit and the burners. Also pull the wires and clean the leads and contacts. At 23 the heater is probally a milivolt run heater so a small drop in power can stop the heater from working. Often the problem will be the pilot generator or the gas valve. The generator should delevop 1/2 a volt to run the heater. This can be measured with a milivolt meter. You should get 500-700mv from the generator. If you get that and have no pilot you may need a gas valve and if not you probally need a new pilot generator and it would be best to replace the whole pilot assembly. If you live in Calif. or someplace that makes standing pilot obsolet you can probally find these parts on line through Ray-Pak.
But before starting check the filter to be sure it's clean. If you have had the pool for 23 years that goes without saying but I have to say it anyway.
After that you can use a jump wire and isolate each itim in the saftey circut (thermostat, high limits, presure switch...) just follow the wire when it leaves the gas valve and follow it to each item and jump across. If you find one of these itims to be the culpret it is just a simptom and their is probally another problem and the part just keeps the heater from working so as to keep it safe from that problem. Good luck and let me know what you find and we can go further if need be.
