SOURCE: Amana GUCA Pilot Light
Sound to me that the pilot had gotten blowen out.
Turn the gas valve to Pilot and depress the knob while lighting the pilot. If it does not stay lite you may have to clean the thermocouple off. Thats the poart that the flame hits. try to use a scrub pad to clean it with.

Remove the burner and gas valve from the furnace and use compressed air to blow the area under the pilot area ans all around it. The dust and stuff usually cause a condition called "Lazy Pilot" and the flame is probably not going in the designed directions. While you have it out Id replace the thermocouple with a new one reassemble and re-lite and note the difference. The flame should be mostly Blue and no yellow (or vary little at the top end of the flame only) Orange in the top area indicates a good burning flame and the closer to the base the bluer it gets.
While you have the burner out look inside and inspect the inner heat exchanger for cracks or rusted open holes there should be none. Turn on your fan while inspecting and see if you feel the steady blow of air from it inside the heat exchanger indicating a hole. Don't confuse the air that may come down the flue with the air from the blower though. A little breeze is expected from this.
This will take care of over 90% of the problems with the "Blow out" symptom.
If you still have problems you can try and "turn up the pilot". Usually a screw close to the pilot tubing is covering the adjustment screw. Put some soap bubbles around it so you can see if it leaks or not and turn the screw out for more flame (CCW) and in (CW) for less.
Hope this helps Please grade me accordingly and good luck.

Attempting to do what you propose, would be dangerous. Instead, replace it with one that's designed for high wind areas. You can find it at most Cozy dealers or they can order it for you.
If it's any consolation , you're not the only direct vent heater owner, that has had this problem. It's a very common problem. One that has been said to be "The nature of the beast."
Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The control knob opens and closes the vent doors for the air flow you should check your fuses for that or it may be that there is a malfunction at the door it is a little labor intensive check out You tube it should have how to repair your air directional door
