Rheem classic 90 won't stay lit

My rheem will light one burner, but the flame will not jump to the other three so the fuel sensor rod always tells the computer it's not lit. Is there something that I can do to fix this?

Sounds like the burner tubes are dirty. You should remove them and clean. Check the orifice openings also. Bugs, spiders and such like to crawl in there.

Is it easy to do? Do I take the line off at the valve.

Here are care instructions.

No, its not easy really. If you never done it before you should call a pro.

You would be working with gas and its not DIY friendly. I recommend to call in a pro for saftey issues.
