Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

What pilot are you trying to increase exactly? The cooktop or the oven?

cook top

OK so *IF* there is an adjustment (which there always isn't), then it will be right where the pilot light gas line connects to the manifold in the front of the oven. You'll need to remove the top panel and then all the knobs on the burner controls. Remove the screws along the top and bottom of the burner control panel and all the screws behind the 4 burner knobs if any exist. The front panel will then pull off so that you can see the manifold. Now if the pilot light is just screwed straight into the manifold with nothing to adjust, then there is no adjustment. If there is a small set screw where the pilot light connects to the manifold, then you can screw that clockwise or counter-clockwise to adjust the amount of gas that goes to the pilot light.
