Sounds like air passing where it should not be, try checking that all the components of the burner are seated properly for example the cap on the centre resivour and the other thing is that the wicks are high and causing a taller flame

Temperature too low

If it's an oil Aga, it's likely that there is a restriction in the base. This should be cleaned out by your service engineer every six months, although occasionally it may need to be done more frequently.

I have a dynaglo RMC 95-ca and it stinks.How should I clean it and what is the proper wick height. I do not have manual. Thanks for your help.

Stinks? Are you using old Kerosene? Have you replaced the wick recently? Is there soot on the inside or around the top of the heater? If you answered 'Yes' to the first question, then you know what the the solution is. If the unit has soot on or around it, then the problem is with the wick. It may need to be replaced or if it's fairly new, just trimming the top with a pair of scissors may be enough. As the wick height is concerned, it depends on how much heat you're looking for. Generally, the wick height shouldn't exceed 1/2" from the top of the adjustment mantle. Of course, it can be turned down some, once the area heats to the desired comfort level. The final question about the odor or it's cause. Have you painted, stained or cleaned your carpeting recently.? If you have, the heater is picking up the residual odors from those things and making it 50 times worse.

Hope this all helped solve your problem. Please let me know.

Could you tell me how to light a hamco 2000 oil fire

Switch the damper (Oven / direct flue) knob to direct flue and turn the oil heat control to 2. Remove the bung and dip the wick through the hole into the oil. Remove the wick, light and place back through the hole into the oil burner. Remove the wick and snuff out in holder on door. Check burner is alight - if not repeat or switch off oil. After 30 mins change damper knob to oven and set oil flow to desired setting.

its the small rocker with a hole in it that some people tie a bit of string to so it can be pulled down that get the oil going the others are flow controls.
you may also have a fir check valve that needs reseting that will be in your fuel line

Our Jenn-Air French Door bottom freezer refrigerator is making a noise like it's breathing while sleeping. Kind of a wheezing noise. Do you know what this might be and what to do about it? I think it...

This might be a normal noise. when they switched to 134a refrigerant, they had to develop a new oil. This new oil comes over or circulates more easily then the old oil. The oil and refrigerant flow through a capillary tube under 180 psi to the evaporator where it expands. the noises from this process can sound like tapping, chirping, clicking, squealing or wheezing. A hot day, a dirty condenser or when the unit comes out of defrost will make the noises more noticeable.

Sounds like it is cycling on high limit; causes are related to water flow through the heat exchanger or a faulty high limit(doubtful given the heater cycles back on). Check the internal bypass for obstructions; has anyone worked on it recently? There are usually two high limit switches with different trip temperatures; installing the wrong one could also be the culprit. Does the heater "bang" before it goes off (a sign that the water is boiling inside the tube bundle)?
