Corona 23-DK wick replacement

I am trying to replace the wick in my heater. I do not have the owners manual. I have the unit disassambled and am trying to put in the new wick. Should the wick sleeve come out of the adjuster assembly when trying to put in the new wick? It does not want to come out, I see a small amount of buildup but not enough that it shoud prevent the sleeve from coming out. Thank you.

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.

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.

I believe you will find the instructions on or in the package of the new one. I've seen many styles of replacement wicks at Walmart. Also the replacement instructions will be in your owners manual.

Just pull it out with pliers. It has sharp directional tabs pointing down holding it in. Once the wick is pulled out, it is no good. New wick pushes right in.

Turn knob all the way to the right. Your wick may not be mounted right. The pins are out of the guiding wholes.

I must warn you, replacing the wick is a very tricky job. You should take it to the place where you buy the wick and let them install it.  Call first to make sure they provide this service.
