What is the gas pressure set at? Cleaning a flame sensor with anything abrasive is a bad idea. I use a shop rag or the flap of my cargo pocket. It doesn't take much to remove the buildup...unless someone cleaned it once with a wire brush or sand paper and now it is corroding. I would replace the flame sensor and start fresh.
