The low voltage wiring and the thermostat has noting to do with the pilot function of the wall furnace, check to see if when you have the pilot lit manually, while holding the button in does the flame impinge on the thermocouple and does the flame try to wrap around the thermocouple? if not the thermocouple and pilot flame need to be adjusted so that it impinges on the TC, if it does have a good flame impingment, then you probably have a bad TC from the factory, call them and have them send you a new one if still under warrenty.

It is possible that gas valve is bad, however, try replacing the pilot orifice located in the pilot assembly. If the flame is inadequate it will not generate the voltage required in the thermocouple. Pilot orifices are less than $10 and can be found at your local heating contractor's parts counter. Bring in the orifice to match.

Make sure the pilot is clean (Blue flame fully enveloping the top portion of the thermocouple) if its dirty the pilot will be yellow like a candle and barely touching the thermocouple ...quick fix is knock the pilot with a screwdriver...gently tapping it...knocking the dust out and getting a better pilot....the pilot could also be too small if its not making good contact with the thrermocouple....there could also be an Auxillary limit wired into the thermocouple which when open will prevent the magnet from staying closed....if all looks fine then the Gas Valve itself is likely gone (The magnet inside is not field repairable)

Replace the thermocouple.
Try this, do you have a butaine stick lighter? Try to heat the thermocouple with it ... see if you can get the main burner to come on. If not - definitely, replace the thermocouple.
Thanks for your question.
