a o smith gas water heater not staying lit

i am following the instructions to remove the burner to clean the flame sensor. However, i would like to know after I remove the screws on the observation window, do I then unscrew the fitting that holds the burner pipe in the gas regulator switch?

You need to state the model and series... You may have a pilot assembly instead of a hot surface igniter....
