What goes out, the pilot or the main burner.

there isnt a pilot, it has electronic ignition so the main burner starts and then goes out after a few seconds.

Dirty flame sensor. Some units use the HSI as the flame sensor, in that case it needs replaced. others have an individual sensor, and it can be cleaned.
