    I didn't lose the users manual, it didn't come with one. I suspect others out there are in the same boat. Is there one on the internet somewhere?

I have a hunter air purifier model number 36316 and need to know how to change the filter

Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

To change the wick filters of your humidifier:

1. Turn off the unit and unplug it from the wall outlet
2. Remove the tank for the housing.
3. Locate the 3 lock tabs in the base of the unit. Turn them clockwise until the base of the tab lines up with the indentions in the base and lift off the housing.
4. Locate and turn the lock tab clockwise on the base holding the wick fram. Remove the wick frame and set it aside.
5. Remove the old wick by pulling the bottom of the wick out of the frame first and discard.
6. Insert the new wick top first. Ensure wick is in between the tabs at the top of the wick frame then slide the bottom part of the wick into the fram, making sure not to crush the bottom corners of the wick.
7. Reassemble the unit and refill the water tank if necessary.
8. Turn the unit back on and resume operation.

Need to see pictorial instruction on how to replace wick in a Dyna Glo RMC-95-C2 kerosene heater

I think the Dyna-glow RMC95 series of heaters are equivalent to DH2300 series heaters.
In any event, the wick you purchased should have ahd the installation instructions included with the wick.

If it didn't or you tossed it, Here's a link to the DH-2300 series heater's Owners Manual, which may help you.

Good luck. Be sure to wear rubber gloves when you try to install the wick. Particularly, if you still have kerosene in the tank.

I just replaced the wick, cleaned up the heater and filled with new K-1 kero. The heater (Dyna-Glo RMC-95-C7) is emitting black smoke worst than ever. The wick is burning a little unevenly.

Either the wick was improperly installed or you may not have allowed enough time for the wick to soak in the kerosene and become evenly distributed. Check the placement of the new wick and allow time (several hours) for the wick to absorb the kerosene.

Dyna glo RMC 95 C6 kerosene heater, BRAND NEW. Wick and flame seem very low. At Max the wick height is 3/8(suggested height by manufacturer), flame is quite low, and not very hot at all

1. Check to make sure you using fresh clean kerosene fuel. 2. Make sure you fill the heater and let it set for at least an hour, 2 hours is better. 3. If either of those solutions don't fix the problem, return to the store.
I have the same heater and just changed the wick. When working correctly, it should be so hot that it's uncomfortable to hold your hand 2 feet over it.

Once I light the wick the flame flutters until it almosts extinguishes itself

Have you ever changed your wick? This sounds as if the wick is dirty or hard to the touch and that is normal on these heaters. First is fuel selection and K1 kerosene is fuel of choice for these. Next as a rule of thumb about every three tanks burn out the heater completely(do not do this in the house it really smells terrible when it burns out). Make sure you soak the wick at least a half hour prior to lighting. If the wick is newer you can try cleaning it with an old tooth brush by raising the wick just high enough to brush it lightly. Feel the wick and if it is hard loosen it up by bending then brushing it. Ultimately you will need to replace the wick and that is all about patience take your time and follow a manufacturers instructions. Good luck.
