The pilot light inside your heater is probably weak and get sucked out by main burner when it turns on, it needs to be a nice strong blue flame that heats up the thermocouple beside it.

It would need to be serviced internally by a service tech.

But for now if you take an air compressor and blow out combustion residue at pilot and main burner it might just work.
