The manual states "One of the temp adjust buttons stuck closed"
solution?
1 press and release each button once
2 Replace gas control valve

Yes that happens with the temp buttons, but is rare... Im not so sure that is whats shutting the heater down in the middle of a fire, but maybe on initial start..

AO smith web site has all the service manuals I have. read through them and do some tests to be sure what your issue is...
