Arrow Boiler not firing, problem with pilot relight control

I have 23 years old steam boiler Weil-McLain EG-45.
From time to time boiler is not starting.
The spark from relight is weak and slow
My boiler has installed Pilot Relight Control made by White-Rodgers 5051-21. I consider to change it to Pilot Relight Control by White Rodgers 5059-23, but I am not so sure, that these models, are compatible I was trying to search the answer on White-Rodgers www., but I can't even find my old model 5059-21 to find cross refference to newer one, and as for bad, there is no number to call technical support. Only option is to write letter to them
Anyone can help

I have the same 5059-21 relite control on my Hytech Boiler. I went on the web and found information about them. The new model number is 5059-23. Hope this helps.

Arrow White-Rodgers 5051-21 to White-Rodgers 5059-23 ???

My question should be: Can I change White-Rodgers Pilot Relight Control 5051-21 to 5059-23 ? I am sorry for mistake in my question from previous post
Model 5051-21 is so old, that I couldn't even find it on White-Rodgers web page site

Mark, does your existing 5051 control resemble the 5059? Does it have one high voltage connection, a ground, and the 24VAC connections? If so, the 5059 will 'probably' work.

Before you change the control... check all the GROUND CONNECTIONS that they are clean, rust-free, and tight! These controls require a SOLID GROUND!

I found a tel number that you can try for White Rodgers:

314-577-1300

Maybe they can help you?
