Gas water heater keeps restarting

I have a gas water heater with electric pilot that will start and run for a while(sometimes till water is up to temp sometimes for seconds) then stop and seconds later restart and repeat. Anyone have an idea what is causing this. Flame looks good and vent is open.

???

I am not completely positive of this one without seeing the problem but, from your description it sounds like a possible flame (high temp) or vent sensor is tripping and may have an automatic reset. Just a possibility without seeing the problem

Hope this helps
