Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Sounds like an ignition problem so yes a tune up would be a good idea. It could be as simple as cleaning the flame sensor but if it hasn't been serviced in a while then cleaning the burners is also in order
