Flip the switch for the WH, the gas solenoids open, the sparker sparks and the burner comes on ... for 5-10 seconds ! Wait about 30 seconds and it repeats. After 3 time, it quits trying and the little light next to the WH switch comes on ("failed to light" ?).
As I said, the dealer will ultimately have to deal with it, but what is the likely issue ?
Look for a kinked hose. Drove my fridge !NUTZ! until I repositioned the hose to ease the curve from the manifold.
