There should be an adjustment for the pilot lite on the thermostat body, just turn it up and make sure the hottest point of the flame is in the sensor wire.

Thanks but I did that. It is barly on will not adjust up. When you turn on the gas burner is't the pilot suposed to get bigger. Don't forget it has a new thermostat and safty valve.

Try cleaning the capillary line that feeds the pilot lite.
