There is no pilot on an electric water heater. (only on a gas one)
if this is new then there is some malfunction and you need to call the servcie that installed it for you!
They are under a full warranty and not to try and repair any appliance under warranty or you can void this warranty!

Go to this site first and you will find it opens tothe user guide for your hot water heater.
Scrol down to page 13 and it will explain how to adjust the temperture and to reset the system if needes.

Check the breaker is on in the electrical box too!
