Question about Heating & Cooling
I can understand your anxiousness. However, there's no way the end user can override the flammable vapors cut out switch. But, here's what I would suggest you check: make sure that the direct vent is not clogged on the outside; that the damper is opening as it should; that there is not a minor gas leak in or around the water heater. If the heater is located in a garage, be sure there are no gasoline cans, paint cans, etc, anywhere near it. If it's inside the home, rather than a garage ... Have you painted recently, in anticipation of selling the house? Although you may not be able to smell it, the sensor may have picked up some paint fumes. Or worse case scenario is the sensor is faulty. Although this model was discontinued in November 2010, it still has a 6 years parts Warranty. This may be your chance to use it (worse case scenario).
Check the things I listed above and you may find the culprit.
