Hello, so far it sounds like the human hair size orifice in the pilot light is slightly clogged, or that the pilot flame adjustment on the gas valve needs to be opened a bit more to increase the pilot flame size.

If you can send me a photo of the gas valve, looking down on the top of the gas valve, I might be able to point out the pilot adjustment. Use the paper clip icon at the top right of the tool bar above, or the '+attachfiles' link to the left of your 'send' button at the bottom of the dialog box.

We can go from there without a time limit.
