Never lights. Ran a couple of stove burners for a minute but that did not help.

Time to check the electrode in the WH for loose connections and voltage.

I ran the furnace about 5 minutes, and tried the Water Heater again and this time it finally took!

Not sure which brand heater you have Some things to check would be the pilot and main burner orifices as spiders and other critters tend to get in and clog them up. Sometimes just blowing them out with some compressed air will clear them out

I've also found that whenever you have problems with a furnace, water heater or refer it's a good idea to simply disconnect/reconnect all the spade lug connections. These seem to corrode frequently.
