wicks won't light for usually one of 2 reasons. water in the kerosene, which means a new wick and new fuel. or build-up on the wick. check to see if the wick is hard. your wick should be soft. burning out the heater until all fuel is used either by running down all the fuel in the unit or removing the fuel can and lighting to burn off all fuel in the bottom will prevent the wick from getting hard.

This a very odd question about cell phones, isn't it? There are two videos on you tube to help you do this.

Tip

Wick won't light


I didn't realize how quickly condensation can enter the tank. Condensation will ruin the wick permanently, even a brand new wick.
To avoid condensation, do NOT empty the tank unless you are replacing the wick, or some other repair requires it. Likewise, do NOT burn the kerosene out, for the same reason: condensation.
When the tank is filled enough, condensation can still enter but the wick will be able to burn and you won't know the difference. But as soon as the kerosene is gone, all the wick has is water. 
STORAGE:  When you burn out the kerosene to store it, condensation can enter and you will not be able to use the wick again. So unless it's necessary, don't burn out the kerosene.
If you have to store the heater in a place that requires the tank to be empty, dissassemble the heater before you use it again and make sure the tank is completely dry and contains no water BEFORE you use it again.
I think but I'm not sure, that the tank must have been designed to let some condensation fall to the sides, or somehow get out of the way. But I'm certain this doesn't last because condensatiion is inevitable and it will accumulate.

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.

Is it true that if you use moth balls with the fuel in my kerosene heater it burns cleaner & there wont be any build up on the wick? I get alot of soot build up on the wick of my kerosene heater &...


I can't answer about moth balls cleaning the wick but off the top of my head I would not try it as I do not know just what gases your unit would give off. I use kerosene heaters and find that after about 5 tanks of fuel I put on a pair of household rubber gloves, remove the chimney and turn the wick all the way up. Then I roll the wick between my fingers and get the hard carbon off. Once I have the wick clean I use the shop vac to vacuum it all up. I have found that by doing this my wick is never dirty, I do not get any smoke and the wicks last more than 20 years. Probably a better idea than moth balls. Let me know how you make out.

Wick not burning properly and smells


You need to use pure kerosene do not use died or color kerosene it depletes the wick faster and causes a distinct odor. Pure kerosene should be clear.

Portable kerozene heater


If this is a forced air kerosene heater it does not use a wick. If it is a portable wick heater you can get them for all brands at Portable Heater Parts on the web.
