I live in N.Y.C. and I have a Weil-Mclain gas boiler with an electronic pilot light. This morning when I went to turn the boiler on it took about 50 clicks of the pilot to get the boiler to fire up it used to take about 20. after the boiler fired up the pilot light kept on clicking. When I disconnected the pilot light cable from the ignitor you could here the ignitor keep clicking away.Once the Flame turned off the pilot would stop clicking,but once the water temp dropped, the pilot would come back on, ignite the gas after about 50 clicks and then stay on clicking until the flame went off. Would appreciate any help.

I suggest you start by cleaning the flame sensor & pilot assembly. Also make sure the area where the pilot assembly mounts is good & clean. Use some light sand paper to ensure good electrical contact. If this fails to cure the problem, it could be the ignition module is going bad.
