A couple weeks back the pilot went off on this unit but I was able to restart. It went out again this morning and it would not relight this time. Is this likely a flame sensor or ignitor. I wanted to pick up the most likely faulty parts on the way home so I'm just looking for a recommendation.
Thanks

I was able to resolve this issues by resetting the thermal switch and cleaning the screen at the bottom of the tank. Thanks

Glad to hear that fixed it.:)

If it keeps happening, then I'd get the Pilot and Igniter Assembly.
