Thank you for your question. I know it's frustrating when the water heater stops working. A clean water heater and water heater environment are the first things that should be considered when troubleshooting a FVIR water heater for pilot outage. Government regulations for higher efficiency and new flammable vapor ignition resistance requirements have made today�s water heaters more sensitive to the need for proper air flow around and through the appliance. A dirty environment can affect a water heater�s performance. Take time to make sure that the area around, and under the heater is clean and obstruction free. Make sure that the air intake screen(s) (LDO screens) located on the base ring of the heater are clean and properly installed; this is where all of the combustion air enters the heater. I'm attaching information of the most common reasons for pilot outage and how to clean the arrestor. The burner assembly will need to be removed to clean the arrestor. I hope this will help you. Water heaters can be very dangerous and unless you feel very confident in your repair skills, I strongly recommend having a technician check and repair this water heater. If the pilot still goes out after cleaning the arrestor, a technician will be needed to check it. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
