Water heater won't stay lit

A few days ago we had some bad wind for a few days. The pilot went our a few times... The wind has stopped and I have to keep lighting the pilot. It lights fine and then when I want hot water 5 hours later, it's only warm and the pilot is out. What is going on here?

Hi,

Sounds like a common issue with the new FVIR water heaters.

What is the make and model? Seies # if there is one. Plus if you can post the first 5 digits of the serial # that would be helpful.
