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

Replace tha wick


Undo the lid from the bottle and put the wick in from the bottom wind the wick up using the knob on the side. Or you can take to top glass off and wind it downwards. You need to make sure the wick is long enough to reach the bottom of the jar to soak up all the solvent.

WILL NOT START BURNING. REPLACED BATTERIES, GOOD SPARK. CLEANED. NO FIRE


When is the last time you cleaned your wick? A dirty wick will not light, wicks should be soft to the touch look burnt but not hard. Are you burning K1 kerosene? Other grades of kerosene have larger amounts of parafin in them this creates a crusty black hard carbon on the wick making it hard to light and also makes it smell like a semi truck running. I use an old tooth brush and clean the wick, let it set and soak for at least a half hour then try to light. Just a tip if you let your heater burn out every third tank this cleans your wick. Only burn it out in a well ventilated area as this stinks something bad never do this inside. Don't forget let the wick soak for at least a half hour. If your wick is over three years old replace it. Good luck hope this helps!

Is it possible to manually ignite a corona 22dk kerosene heater safely with a butane lighter? the battery operated igniter is not working with new batteries installed.


I just use a match. Turn the setting dial to High. Open the little door in front. The one with glass in it. Light the match. Push the pedal down that you normally use to start it with the battery starter. Put the match into the heater and touch it to the wick. With just a regular match, I can reach in far enough to light the wick. When you have a complete ring of fire, lower the pedal slowly and close the door. It will smoke briefly and then burn. After 15 minutes lower the wick till the flame is smaller and whiter.

The wick will not raise


If you allowed the fuel to run out then the wick is probably ruined, you will have to replace it.

How do i change the wick?


You need a pair of Pliers, a flat-tip screwdriver and a plastic bag (for old wick)
ALSO - make sure the tank is empty (or as close as possible)
1. Turn the control knob to OFF.
2. On the left and right side (bottom, just under the wire cage are two cabinet screws. Remove these.
3. Using the handle, lift straight up to remove the cabinet (entire upper assembly)
4. Gently pull off the wick adjustment knob (you will need to push in the little square button.
5. Remove the "dressing plate" (the ring about 3" high) that the "Off" "Low" and "High" markings. The chain attaches this the fuel cap, but you don't have to remove the cap. Just set the "dress plate" ring aside as far as the chain lets you.
6. Either trip the manual shut-off or push against the wobbly pendulum to the left of the control knob shaft to drop the wick all the way down.
7. Remove the four wing nuts that holds the heater on the wick assembly and carefilly lift teh sick assembly from the heater.
8. Reset the automatic shut-off, put the know back on temporarily and raise the wick all the way.
9. Turn the Wick Assembly upside down. Place the white plastic strip, packed with the new Wick, on the Wick Cover to protect your fingers.
10. While holding the Wick Assembly upside down, pull off the Wick Cover with a sharp tug.
11. Remove the Wick while folding it to the inside. (Remove the Wick Sleeve together with the Wick).
12. Take the new wick and insert the Wick pins into the three holes of the Wick Sleeve. (Make sure the short portion of the Wick is UP.)
13. Attach the Wick wo the retainer teeth of the Wick Sleeve stick into it, making sure the Wick fits evenly arount the inside with no wrinkles or bunching.
14. Fit the Wick and Wick Sleeve back onto the Wick Guide, making sure you fit the pins through the slanted grooves of the Wick Guide and Press on each of the three pins from the back, making sure they are inserted securely through the holes on the Wick Guide. (This is where most people screw up Wick Replacement, so make sure you get this right)
15. Turn the Wick Adjustment Knob to make sure the Wick slides up and down freely. (Note, the wick should automatically be set to 3/8 of an inch when fully raised.)
16. Turn the Wick Assembly upside down and replace the Wick Cover by: Align the four tabs on teh Wick Cover with the four screw holes on the bottom of teh assembly and snap it into place.
17. Hold the Set Lever to down position with your finger.
18. Remove the protective strips from the Wick Cover. Turn the Wick Adjustment Knob to the fully raised position and light pull on the "skirt" of the Wick to remove any slack. Then press the skirt lightly onto the teeth on the Wick Cover to hold it in place.
19. Replace the Wick Assembly on the heater WITH THE WICK RAISED. Replace the wing nuts, tightening gradually, tightening opposites sides first(If counting clockwise, tighten screw 1, 3, 4, 2 - go through several rounds, tightening gradually so it seats evenly
20. Before further reassembly, trip the Auto shut-off and reset it to make sure it works properly. Test the Wick adjustment knob to make sure Wick slides up AND down freely.
21. Remove the knob and replace the "dressing plate ring.
22. Replace the entire upper assembly "Heater Cabinet" and repalce the two screws. Replace the Wick Adjustment Knob.

BROKEN GLASS COVER UNDER NIGHT LIGHT


SAME PROBLEM FOR ME...I REMOVED THE BOTTOM COVER AND FOUND THAT ONE LIGHT WAS NOT FIXED AND WAS LOOSE AND WAS TOUCHING THE GLASS. THIS HEAT WAS WHAT BROKE THE GLASS COVER. CLOSED INSPECTION SHOWED THE LIGHT SOCKET WAS TOO LARGE FOR THE CLIPS AND WERE NOT SECURED WHEN PURCHASED. I GOT SMALL SCREW AND NUT, BENT CLIPS SO THE SOCKET HOLE MATCHED THE HOLE MADE BY THE CLIP AND SECURELY ATTACHED THE SOCKET. THIS WILL SECURE THE LIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TOUCHING THE GLASS..........IF I CAN EVER FIND A GLASS REPLACEMENT....MAY JUST HAVE ONE CUT. NOW THE PROBLEM IS TO REPLACE THE LIGHT AND MICROWAVE FUSE WHICH WAS BLOWN WHEN THE GLASS BROKE.
