If the burners ignite then go out within seconds then you probably have a flame rectification (sensing) issue. You can try cleaning the flame sensor rod (see attached pic for typical) with steel wool or an aggressive Scotch Brite pad (fine aluminum oxide sandpaper as a last resort). The flame sensor is positioned in the burner flame. It's held in place by a single screw. Remove it and clean off the metal rod.
