Hello my gas hot water tank stays lit for only 10 minutes, then goes out. Do you know what this might be? It's a 2005 model, thanks.

There are a number of possible causes for this, from a bad flame sensor or thermocouple to a blocked vacuum switch or a problem with the vent. It's definitely a good idea to have a heating professional troubleshoot and repair this.
