water heater lights but goes out


Stays lit for 5 or 10 seconds. Electronic ignition , nice flame but goes out. Checked vacuum tubing- is the vacuum switch bad?

Noticed moisture in vacuum tubing near power vent so I took off tubing at vacuum switch and at vent and blew air through. Stayed lit and still going.
