Hot water heater does not stay on

Good morning everyone,I am still messing with the hot water heater that won't stay lit. Yesterday I was able to lit the heater and OPENED up the door and it stayed on most of the day but today it goes out after about 1 minute. This is a1988 Atwood heater and I did not have this problem until I replaced the MAIN burner tube. Any help is greatly appreciated.Patrick

I had this problem with my Atwood Water Heater last year, and I had to replace the Solenoid valve -- pretty straight forward prpcess
