OK, so I pulled out the orifice and it was a little clogged. I also replaced the main burner. It ignites and stays lit. But now it has a noise. I've attached a video. It's hard to see because of the sunlight, but you can hear it. Is it the air mixture? Or is it the placement of the flame spread thingy?

Adjust the air fuel mixture. It should just roar, not have small cut outs. Doug

open that air slot untill you start to see yellow in the flame, then close it off untill there is just a tiny bit of yellow on the tips. right now your not getting enough air, it wont get any quieter but it will be adjusted properly. I have the same water heater and that sounds normal.
