New couple,valve,pilot and strong pilot flame but no burners.Fan kicks on

I replaced the pilot, couple and the valve. Now I have strong pilot tthat stays lit but burners don't come on?

I know the couple send a signal identifying that it's safe.

Any thoughts as to why the burners won't kick on?

Could It possibly be a crossing of the wires that connect to the top of the valve?

Check for 24V at gas valve.

Check for 24V at the transformer.

Ok, I'm not sure if it matters but the couple was making contact with the fuel tube. I turned gas off, made sure it wasn't touching it and retried...it's working.

But: i noticed that the flames are seem to be not as strong as they were before and they are further up towards the couple and pilot. The three burners have arrow shaped flanges that the pilot/couple bracket connect to and the flame seems to be making contact with the arrow shape. Is it possibly in my mind that the flames are low (burning blue with about an inch high flame) and should it be burning that far up the burner?

Ok, I found that the flame making contact with that arrow shaped flange isn't an issue but I feel like after viewing the videos, my flames are very low.

thought?
