I'm wondering the same
Should a duraheat, etc., cylindrical convetion heater's flame be bright yellow, blue , or what? With the old wick the flame was blue, with the catalytic converter glowing red hot. Now with the new wick, I can't even see the CC, because the flame burns a bright yellow. Also I have to really fine tune it now. A wee bit too high, I get smoke and soot. A wee bit too low, same...smoke and possibly flame out.

How do you clean wick on dyna glo rmc 95-c6


Your wick is a fiberglass wick, so all you need to do is operate the heater until it is almost out of fuel than take the heater outside to, preferably, a covered location and let it run out of fuel. This operation generally "cleans" the wick of built up tars.
If the wick doesn't clean this way, then a replacement may be necessary. If the wick is not even across the wick lands, then a trimming may be necessary too.
Burning out a heater of this type is generally only needed about once a week of 24/7 usage.

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.

Sorry about your luck with installing the wicks, honestly there are no parts that have gone bad and need replacing. I have six of these and every year I change wicks in them, you want to talk about a royal pain in the @$$ wick installation is a precise science with very little room for error. I know you do not want to hear this but please take the heater apart one more time. I find it easier to install the wick in the full high position, then to put the wick assembly over the center tube and get the fingers of the wick down completely in the kerosene this is where I mess up but if you use a twisting motion when installing the wick down in to position it seems to seat the wick and work out better. As to why I could not tell you. These are built with such close tolerances it is not even funny. Take your time and test once you have the wick assembly in and four wing nuts on. Even test by quickly tipping it over to trip the extinguisher. PATIENCE PATIENCE PATIENCE can not state it enough. Have you a beer and attempt it one more time. Good luck and remember patience.

How do i change the wick?


You need a pair of Pliers, a flat-tip screwdriver and a plastic bag (for old wick)
ALSO - make sure the tank is empty (or as close as possible)
1. Turn the control knob to OFF.
2. On the left and right side (bottom, just under the wire cage are two cabinet screws. Remove these.
3. Using the handle, lift straight up to remove the cabinet (entire upper assembly)
4. Gently pull off the wick adjustment knob (you will need to push in the little square button.
5. Remove the "dressing plate" (the ring about 3" high) that the "Off" "Low" and "High" markings. The chain attaches this the fuel cap, but you don't have to remove the cap. Just set the "dress plate" ring aside as far as the chain lets you.
6. Either trip the manual shut-off or push against the wobbly pendulum to the left of the control knob shaft to drop the wick all the way down.
7. Remove the four wing nuts that holds the heater on the wick assembly and carefilly lift teh sick assembly from the heater.
8. Reset the automatic shut-off, put the know back on temporarily and raise the wick all the way.
9. Turn the Wick Assembly upside down. Place the white plastic strip, packed with the new Wick, on the Wick Cover to protect your fingers.
10. While holding the Wick Assembly upside down, pull off the Wick Cover with a sharp tug.
11. Remove the Wick while folding it to the inside. (Remove the Wick Sleeve together with the Wick).
12. Take the new wick and insert the Wick pins into the three holes of the Wick Sleeve. (Make sure the short portion of the Wick is UP.)
13. Attach the Wick wo the retainer teeth of the Wick Sleeve stick into it, making sure the Wick fits evenly arount the inside with no wrinkles or bunching.
14. Fit the Wick and Wick Sleeve back onto the Wick Guide, making sure you fit the pins through the slanted grooves of the Wick Guide and Press on each of the three pins from the back, making sure they are inserted securely through the holes on the Wick Guide. (This is where most people screw up Wick Replacement, so make sure you get this right)
15. Turn the Wick Adjustment Knob to make sure the Wick slides up and down freely. (Note, the wick should automatically be set to 3/8 of an inch when fully raised.)
16. Turn the Wick Assembly upside down and replace the Wick Cover by: Align the four tabs on teh Wick Cover with the four screw holes on the bottom of teh assembly and snap it into place.
17. Hold the Set Lever to down position with your finger.
18. Remove the protective strips from the Wick Cover. Turn the Wick Adjustment Knob to the fully raised position and light pull on the "skirt" of the Wick to remove any slack. Then press the skirt lightly onto the teeth on the Wick Cover to hold it in place.
19. Replace the Wick Assembly on the heater WITH THE WICK RAISED. Replace the wing nuts, tightening gradually, tightening opposites sides first(If counting clockwise, tighten screw 1, 3, 4, 2 - go through several rounds, tightening gradually so it seats evenly
20. Before further reassembly, trip the Auto shut-off and reset it to make sure it works properly. Test the Wick adjustment knob to make sure Wick slides up AND down freely.
21. Remove the knob and replace the "dressing plate ring.
22. Replace the entire upper assembly "Heater Cabinet" and repalce the two screws. Replace the Wick Adjustment Knob.
