When was the last time you cleaned the burner and adjusted the igniter? Another problem can be the gas regulator, or the igniter board.
I recently found a solvable problem with my grill regulator. I think this applied to them all. My grill would not stay lit. I ordered a new regulator. While waiting for it to arrive I decided to remove the orifice from the old one. I was surprised to find the out end of the regulator was full of oil.
Propane has oil in it but I never thought it would build up there. After I drained the oil out and reassembled the regulator all was working well again. I think all gas regulators are prone to this type of problem.
Look up your water heater on line and you will find some great service articles.
