Beckett oil burner dripping water

My oil burner will start, light, it's a yellow weak flame and then goes out less than a minute later. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but I noticed a small amount of water on the floor. I looked at everything I could see and the only water droplet I found was ...I'm attaching pictures. The pic w/the arrow pointing to it, you can see a drop of water on the black wire. Any idea if the flame won't stay lit has anything to do w/the water leaking? Anyone know what's wrong with it?
Thank you,

Welcome to the forums.

Hard to tell from the picture but it looks like water is getting into the ignition control.
Do you know what's leaking ?
That needs to be fixed.
