hi it sounds like its to do with the air pressure switch cutting out , it could also be a problem with the pipes to it as the can get perrished and while it will ignight it will keep dropping out, and then going through the same process, also it could also be a problem with the ventura if its dirty and that will have the same effect
its not the sort of thing a D I Y can do so you will need the help of an R G I
