I believe I have the same stove in like new condition i purchased at an auction a year ago. I need to locate a manual for it but so far cannot. Mine has a large round tank that sits on the back of stove, two burners inside with tank coverings, the model #685800R and the #974 is on a metal plate on the back of the stove. It is brown with vent slits on both sides and has a square door on the front. Do you have an owners manual with yours?

Hi, I have a Montgomery Ward Sunheat heater. It's a dual burner enclosed type with a door on the front. The fuel tank is cylindrical and about 1 1/2 - 2 gallons. The cap has a needle valve and when turned upside down releases fuel to the burners by gravity. The whole heater itself is rectangular with louvers on the sides and top. I don't know what wicks go in this or if there are compatible replacements out there.
No 84ALO5800A is the only I.D. or Model No.
Thanks,
Jack

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.

Heater puts out black smoke when lighting and wick does not get flame all the way around


Sounds like the wick (if it's a new one) was improperly installed and is not soaking up enough kerosene. Or you're using old kerosene.

Need to know how to replace the wick


The first thing you need to determine is the correct model number of your heater. Once you've done that, go to the GHP Group Inc, website listing the heater manuals and locate the appropriate manual for your heater model and click on the link for your heater.

After you've selected the appropriate manual, you can either download it to your computer or print it out. Inside the manual you'll find the instructions on how to replace the wick. The kerosene heater manual I reviewed listed an incorrect phone number to call to order a replacement wick. I suggest you use the new GHP Group's number to order your replacement wick: (877) 447-4768.

If you have a different Dyna-Glo heater than a kerosene one, you should still be able to locate the appropriate manual on the GHP Group's heater website.

Hopefully, you'll have your heater up and working again in no time.

WILL NOT START BURNING. REPLACED BATTERIES, GOOD SPARK. CLEANED. NO FIRE


When is the last time you cleaned your wick? A dirty wick will not light, wicks should be soft to the touch look burnt but not hard. Are you burning K1 kerosene? Other grades of kerosene have larger amounts of parafin in them this creates a crusty black hard carbon on the wick making it hard to light and also makes it smell like a semi truck running. I use an old tooth brush and clean the wick, let it set and soak for at least a half hour then try to light. Just a tip if you let your heater burn out every third tank this cleans your wick. Only burn it out in a well ventilated area as this stinks something bad never do this inside. Don't forget let the wick soak for at least a half hour. If your wick is over three years old replace it. Good luck hope this helps!

Is it true that if you use moth balls with the fuel in my kerosene heater it burns cleaner & there wont be any build up on the wick? I get alot of soot build up on the wick of my kerosene heater &...


I can't answer about moth balls cleaning the wick but off the top of my head I would not try it as I do not know just what gases your unit would give off. I use kerosene heaters and find that after about 5 tanks of fuel I put on a pair of household rubber gloves, remove the chimney and turn the wick all the way up. Then I roll the wick between my fingers and get the hard carbon off. Once I have the wick clean I use the shop vac to vacuum it all up. I have found that by doing this my wick is never dirty, I do not get any smoke and the wicks last more than 20 years. Probably a better idea than moth balls. Let me know how you make out.

Dyno-Glo RMC-95-C7 kerosene heater. replaced wick


once the tank gets low(on E) put the heater outside and let the remaining fuel burn completely out. This will burn off the residue build up on the wick and make it easier to turn off manually. do this often. i also use an old toothbrush to "fluff up" the wick. if the residue is too hard for the toothbrush bristles, flip the toothbrush over and break up the residue with the back side of the toothbrush. once all (or nearly all) of the residue has burned off you may see some smoke when you ignite the wick again. also, it may smell for a bit. I always light and shut off the heater outdoors. I mounted a dolly (table withe 4 wheels) under the heater to make transporting it easier. hope this helps!

Set to automatic extinguisher


Mine is missing too! Pull the front grid up, take the element out, and you will see a plate covering the wick area. Slide this plate to the left until it clicks into place. Now you're set! If your wick is old, you might need to 'prime' it by wetting it with some kerosene.
