Hello and thanks for your question.   You say the flame goes out but do you still see the igniter glowing on and off every few minutes?   If you do you probably have a bad coil in the burner. If the igniter never glows again it could be an open flame sensor or any of the thermostats open. Let me know what the igniter is doing. Dave

Yes Dave the igniter glows on and off with about a 2-3 min cycle

Ok then as long as the gas supply is good you have a bad coil in the burner. The coils have winding not thicker than a thread and they can work when cold and open when they get hot. Dave
