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 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.

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.

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.

Dyna glo RMC 95 C6 kerosene heater, BRAND NEW. Wick and flame seem very low. At Max the wick height is 3/8(suggested height by manufacturer), flame is quite low, and not very hot at all


1. Check to make sure you using fresh clean kerosene fuel. 2. Make sure you fill the heater and let it set for at least an hour, 2 hours is better. 3. If either of those solutions don't fix the problem, return to the store.
I have the same heater and just changed the wick. When working correctly, it should be so hot that it's uncomfortable to hold your hand 2 feet over it.

Dyno-Glo RMC-95-C7 kerosene heater. replaced wick


once the tank gets low(on E) put the heater outside and let the remaining fuel burn completely out. This will burn off the residue build up on the wick and make it easier to turn off manually. do this often. i also use an old toothbrush to "fluff up" the wick. if the residue is too hard for the toothbrush bristles, flip the toothbrush over and break up the residue with the back side of the toothbrush. once all (or nearly all) of the residue has burned off you may see some smoke when you ignite the wick again. also, it may smell for a bit. I always light and shut off the heater outdoors. I mounted a dolly (table withe 4 wheels) under the heater to make transporting it easier. hope this helps!

Dyna Glo model 95 C2 wick replacement is a boogar even with so called instructions is there any trick to this wick is hard to hold in place and insert over round housing without pulling out 3 sidepins have...


turn the wick control knob all the way up before installing new wick. Put it all back together and make sure wick goes all the way down inside the groove when you push the shutoff lever. Do this several times. If not, then heater WILL NOT shut off !! P.S..use clear K-1 kerosene....the K-1 with red color seems to make bad carbon deposits on the wick...in a short time the wick becomes crusted and will not drop down to extinguish the flame. I had to open it up and put baking soda on the wick to put it out.
