Well other then getting dirty and tearing it apart...... on the dk-12 when you install the new wick the black line needs to match up with the adjusting coller then you push the wick onto the teeth and assemble the hard part on mine is the piece below the wick that guides the wick in the bottom there needs to be a little slack so the wick can get raised and lowered. I hate to sound like I like ace hardware but from where I am at there guy there is great rebuilding these.

SOURCE: I need to change the wick on my dk 23 corona kerosene heater

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

Check all airvents into conbustion chamber. Make shure they are all clear of blockage. The heater needs air to burn fule properly. Check wick adjustment it may have to much wick.

Wick won't light


I didn't realize how quickly condensation can enter the tank. Condensation will ruin the wick permanently, even a brand new wick.
To avoid condensation, do NOT empty the tank unless you are replacing the wick, or some other repair requires it. Likewise, do NOT burn the kerosene out, for the same reason: condensation.
When the tank is filled enough, condensation can still enter but the wick will be able to burn and you won't know the difference. But as soon as the kerosene is gone, all the wick has is water. 
STORAGE:  When you burn out the kerosene to store it, condensation can enter and you will not be able to use the wick again. So unless it's necessary, don't burn out the kerosene.
If you have to store the heater in a place that requires the tank to be empty, dissassemble the heater before you use it again and make sure the tank is completely dry and contains no water BEFORE you use it again.
I think but I'm not sure, that the tank must have been designed to let some condensation fall to the sides, or somehow get out of the way. But I'm certain this doesn't last because condensatiion is inevitable and it will accumulate.

I need to know how to replace the wick and what size wick is required, I guessed a 95mm. The dial that controls the wick wont stay turned holding the wick up so i cant light the heater. would this be due...


It possibly could, if the wick is not installed properly. Also, the height mechanism (the control knob and the gears) may have lost it's tension and will need to replaced.

However, without knowing what brand/manufacturer and model number kerosene heater you have, there's not much more I can tell you.

Heater will not stay lit after firing it up. Replaced wick and kerosene.


Two things usually cause the problem you noted. An improperly installed wick or the tails of the wick are not all the way into the tank. Therefore, it won't absorb enough kerosene for it to continually burn

Check out those two things and one of the other should solve your problem.

Corona 23-dk heater burns fine when filled up but flames starts going very low a little pass the 1/2 line on fuel gauze. what causing that.


From your description, it sounds like the wick may need replacing or the tails of the wick are not hanging all the way down into the tank. And, therefore they are drying out. Thus, your flame gets low and eventually goes out. The only way to know is take the heater apart. If you're not comfortable doing that check with your local hardware stores, like True Value or Ace. many of these store do repairs on kerosene heaters and replace wicks. It can be a messy job, but someone has to do it.
