what make and model is it? They are very simple to change,never heard of 1 "Not" lighting tho,unless you have water in tank and the wick sucked up the water...water don't burn,You can also raise the wick in their now if it has never been raised,as long as it don't have "riviet"looking things attached to sides of wick to fit it wick housing(Sears is good for that)If it a round or square heater it pretty much the same you have to remove the outer shell of heater, its always a good idea to dump out fuel first,at the base of wick their is usually 3 wing nuts or screw that hold wick Assembly in,after removing them you pull housing up to remove ,notice how the old one is on and remove and put new one on,when putting back in make sure wick fans out and goes to bottom tank,put back to gether and your done,most replacement wicks come with directions and height setting for the wick, Its not real hard as long as you pay attention

First you need to get the shell off the unit, and get down to the main burner area. There should be 4 wing nuts holding the wick tower down to the fuel tank. These must be removed, and the wick and the adjuster apparatus removed up and over the top of the center tower. Having a towel or old rag handy to set the unit on when you get it off is a good idea, so you can work on it. Remove the old wick, taking care to see how the fabric band on the cloth wick is positioned on the bottom edge of the wick carrier band. Install the new wick at the same level as the old one on the carrier and set it aside. Make sure you clean the tower, especially all the black carbon buildup around the center and near the top. I use a wire brush on a cordless drill to buff the stuff off, works great. Remove the old kerosene from the tank and clean the tank best you can, then put the new wick inside the carrier, down on the tower, being careful to get the bottom portion of the wick down into the tank area, (it should be quite loose down there once you get the rest of the carrier on the tower. Make sure the whole apparatus sets down evenly and fairly easily on the bottom tank part and screw it down with the four wing nuts. I use a paper cup to pour clear, K1 kerosene onto the new wick all the way around the tower, then make sure it moves easily up and down with the height adjuster knob and while it's in a down position, pour some more kero in on it. You can pour several cups of kero on the new wick and then when it's working up and down well, turn it up and lite it before you put the whole thing all back together. It's best to do this outside as sometimes you can get smoking, if you don't get the flame spreader cage on quickly enough. Once it's on and the flames come up and look good, then turn it off, let it all cool off and you can put it back together. Remember, don't use anything but absolutely clean, clear, K1 Kerosene in the unit and burn it completely dry at least once a week, if you use it a lot. It's called dry burning, and it's a wick cleaning function. If you do this, the wick can last years and years.
