How do you replace just the top part of the wick on a comfort glow GR9B kerosene heater?


    • Remove the base plate from your Comfort Glow heater and expose the fuel tank. Lift the fuel tank out of the heater and set it to one side, well away from the heater. Note that the fuel tank is not connected to anything and will slide out easily.
    • 2 Run the heater until all the fuel in the lines is used, a process called "dry burnicon1.png," which usually only takes a few minutes. The fire will go out when the lines are empty. Turn the heater switch off and allow it to cool.
    • 3 Take the batteries out of the battery compartment on the back of the heater. This is an important safetyicon1.png step that keeps the heater from accidentally coming on while you are working on it.
    • 4 Lift the wick ring up and off, then remove the two nuts that secure the wick. The wick ring fits around the wick and the draft pipe -- the hollow tube that holds the wick -- and serves to hold the wick firmly in place.
    • 5 Slide the wick up as far as possible to reveal the positioning pin -- the small metal pin near the bottom of the wick. This pin is part of the wick and helpsicon1.png to ensure it is installed correctly. Push it out through the positioning hole in the draft pipe and lift the wick out of the heater.
    • 6 Fit the new wick onto the draft pipe and engage the positioning pin in the hole by pushing it in until it clicks into place. Move the wick down into the heater and replace the two nuts to secure it.
    • 7 Measure the distance between the wick and the draft pipe with the clearance gauge. The distance between the wick and the draft pipe should be the same all the way around, to ensure an even burn. Adjust the set screws as necessary to create even spacing. These are the small screws spaced evenly around the draft pipe that, when turned, move the pipe slightly so you can correct the spacing between the draft pipe and the wick.
    • 8 Replace the wick ring over the wick. Return the batteries to the battery compartment and the fuel tank to its compartment. The fuel tank will slide securely into its compartment in only one way. Replace the fuel compartment cover to complete the project.

Tips & Warnings
  • Keep the heater set on medium to medium-high for best results. Setting it too low or too high may cause soot to accumulate on the wick.
  • When operating a kerosene heater indoors, always have a working carbon monoxide alarm and a smoke alarm. These heaters are generally safe when in use, but an alarm will provide a safety backup in case the heater malfunctions

I have a Dyna-Glo Kerosene heater model RMC-95-C4. It has always worked great but now it is smoking and will not stay lit. Is it water in the fuel?


Yes, it could be bad fuel. Or you may simply need a new wick. If a new one has been installed, recently, make sure that the tails of the wick go all the way down into the fuel tank and are not tucked up under the wick holder.

If the wick checks out alright, then its a fuel issue. You will need to empty the tank and dispose of the bad fuel properly.You may need to flush the heater tank too. Also, dispose of any remaining fuel you have in the storage and but new fuel from a different source than where you purchased it last time. Replacing the wick would be a good idea to, because its now contaminated.

All of this is a nasty job, so be sure to wear rubber gloves (not Latex or Vinyl). If you don't feel comfortable undertaking it yourself, many independent hardware stores provide this service.

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.

My Dyna GLo kerosene heater has excessive smoke and yellow flame


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.

Only half of the wicks burns/ flame varies in height/ smokes !


Sounds like you have a wick that has burnt unevenly in the past and now there is not a good setting for an optimum burn. Either the wick needs to be trimmed even or you need a new wick.
