Lack of thermal connection between the new tank and the thermostat

Is it the strap-on with curtain wire, or shoved in a pocket/tube type?

Its held on with a flat metallic strap about 5mm wide that goes right

Whereabouts on the tank is it? It should normally be about 1/3 of the way up, too high and because hot water rises it will constantly monitor the water temperature where it is hottest so the bottom half of the tank does not warm up.
