Dyna Glo Pro RMC-KFA70TDGP 70,000 BTU Torpedo heater not igniting

I have kerosene in the tank, plugged it in the wall, have the thermostat turned up, The fan kicks on, but no ignition. Isn't there supposed to be a clicking sound, like an ignitor going, until if fires up?

The main circuit board supplies ac power to the ignitor ( black transformer looking device) and the transformer increases the voltage that is supplied to the sparking device. Make sure the wires are connected to the sparking device and the ends of this device are approximately 3mm apart and that it is in the general position near the end of the nozzle. If you do not hear a "clicking" sound it could be the main board, wires or sparking device.

    There should be a "clicking" sound for about 5 seconds before the photo cell shuts the heater down. Pull the spark plug and clean it. Make sure the electrodes are about 3mm apart. Try to statr again.

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.

I have no manual and no clue

After not finding any help on the Internet, I went to Home Depot to see if they could help. I deduced through my own that the ignitor has failed. (symptom: Turn on the heater, no buzzing, no ignition, heater turns off, light blinks). It's the nifty little black box that has two white wired leading to the circuit board, and two thick black wires going to the spark plug. Of course, Home Depot doesn't carry parts.

They had one Dyna Pro heater on the shelf. My wife found a phone number on the box. We called it and sure enough, we found the company and was able to order the replacement ignitor over the phone. Total cost: $33.00 (Including shipping).

IS HELP OUT THERE. Here's the info:

GHP Group.
7500 Saint Louis, Skokie, IL 60076

The replacement part is part number: 39E0002500
It fits models: RMC-KFA125TDGP, RMC-KFA170TDGP, and RMC-KFA70TDGP

Hope this helps.
