RUUD powervent water heater not always lighting

I have a RUUD Powervent Model PVP50E-1 A that has been intermittently not lighting. I can hear the powervent/blower running and running (more than it should) but the burner (natural gas) does not always light and, by the time I get down there it is not even trying (spark not firing). I turn it off then back on and I can hear something click, the spark kicks in and then it lights. I would guess it is a relay clicking and going bad. Anyone had this problem? thanks
