Pilot never get's big enough to engulf the thermocouple.Pilot orifice seems good (but darn the hole is small). Oven burner lights when I hold a lighter to it. In the old days I'd adjust the pilot to make it bigger and clean everything out). I figure it's the thermostat, but I want a second opinion as I think I'll have to order this part from the manufacturer and won't be able to return it. As repairclinic doesn't do Premier.....Thanks Dan

Remove and clean pilot and tube ass'y, including the screen which allows secondary air to mix - once clean proper flame shape may be restored

I can't find any documents on this one. Can you post a nice clear photo or two of the pilot assembly?
