Question about Heating & Cooling
My kerosene heater won't light. I was told there is a wick that needs to be changed in it. i have found the wick online but I have no idea how to change it. Can you help me?
What make and model is it? They are very simple to change,never heard of 1 "Not" lighting tho,unless you have water in tank and the wick sucked up the water...water don't burn,You can also raise the wick in their now if it has never been raised,as long as it don't have "riviet"looking things attached to sides of wick to fit it wick housing(Sears is good for that)If it a round or square heater it pretty much the same you have to remove the outer shell of heater, its always a good idea to dump out fuel first,at the base of wick their is usually 3 wing nuts or screw that hold wick Assembly in,after removing them you pull housing up to remove ,notice how the old one is on and remove and put new one on,when putting back in make sure wick fans out and goes to bottom tank,put back to gether and your done,most replacement wicks come with directions and height setting for the wick, Its not real hard as long as you pay attention
