Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now.

It cuts off on one of the rollouts? Have you replaced the rollouts sometimes they do go bad.

Can you see the flame when it lights up?

Are you sure the exhaust motor is blowing good and strong and clear if so something has to be blocking the manifold or it has a crack in it. Nothing else would really cause that issue.
