Could be one of 3 things:
ECO (energy cut-off, the little thing with the bent wire encased in a plastic tube)
Difficult to say without being there when it fails.
At the failure point, test for continuity at the ECO and t/stat. If they are both OK, it's the igniter board. Replace with a Dinosaur UIB-S board and you're good to go.
