EI spark ignition didn't want to light?
After sitting all summer I went to light the boiler yesterday and it failed to light the pilot during the first attempt. The second attempt it sparked for a little longer than normal, but finally lit.
Since then, it's lit fine ever since. Is it normal for the pilot to seep all of it's gas out or something over a long period and need to purge like this, or do I have another issue?
My first assumption was a spider caused it and I guess it cleaned it self out but now I'm wondering if I should go through the pain to pull the burner tray out and give things an inspection.
