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.

How to replace wick

You have to disassemble both the guard and the top shell of the unit. Then all you need to do is remove what's left of the old element and then put in the new one. The wicking material needs to have its height reset so it will bath in the Kerosene bath. This is the same fixture which makes the flame smaller or bigger after you light it.

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.

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.

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.

Need to know how to replace the wick

The first thing you need to determine is the correct model number of your heater. Once you've done that, go to the GHP Group Inc, website listing the heater manuals and locate the appropriate manual for your heater model and click on the link for your heater.

After you've selected the appropriate manual, you can either download it to your computer or print it out. Inside the manual you'll find the instructions on how to replace the wick. The kerosene heater manual I reviewed listed an incorrect phone number to call to order a replacement wick. I suggest you use the new GHP Group's number to order your replacement wick: (877) 447-4768.

If you have a different Dyna-Glo heater than a kerosene one, you should still be able to locate the appropriate manual on the GHP Group's heater website.

Hopefully, you'll have your heater up and working again in no time.
