I have Dynaglo RMC-95 in Nigeria and the wick is bad . Where and how can i get replacement.


Most hardware stores and home centers carry wicks for kerosene heaters, in season. Since you know your model number, it won't be hard to find one there.

Need to see pictorial instruction on how to replace wick in a Dyna Glo RMC-95-C2 kerosene heater


I think the Dyna-glow RMC95 series of heaters are equivalent to DH2300 series heaters.
In any event, the wick you purchased should have ahd the installation instructions included with the wick.

If it didn't or you tossed it, Here's a link to the DH-2300 series heater's Owners Manual, which may help you.

Good luck. Be sure to wear rubber gloves when you try to install the wick. Particularly, if you still have kerosene in the tank.

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.

Wick not burning properly and smells


You need to use pure kerosene do not use died or color kerosene it depletes the wick faster and causes a distinct odor. Pure kerosene should be clear.

Dyna glo RMC95C6 kero heater


I suggest you replace the wick and clean the wick feeder assembly. I did not own that model but did have one a number of years ago. The wicks can begin to dry out.
