Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I've replaced many wicks with no problems. Bought a new heater last year. Worked great for a while. I replaced the wick and now the wick won't come up high enough to light.

I have the knob turned as high as it will go, and it's still way below where it should be.

I suggest you replace the wick and clean the wick feeder assembly. I did not own that model but did have one a number of years ago. The wicks can begin to dry out.

try bringing your wick up to the fully raised position and pinch and bend the wick toward the igniter until they line up right. I have two coronas one of which has a broken igniter due to wear and tear. If you open the little door,press down the start lever,and light the wick with a barbecue grill lighter,you can safely light the heater if lining up the wick fails.

Those filters don't last forever! Whenever I had that problem, I just replaced the filter. (The fresh filters also contain some kind of anti-bacterial or anti-fungal, since you're not supposed to add anything to the water which would spray into the air.) My problem has been finding new filters--does Sears still carry them? (The small one I was in recently does NOT.)

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.

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.

12-dk kerosene heater


well other then getting dirty and tearing it apart...... on the dk-12 when you install the new wick the black line needs to match up with the adjusting coller then you push the wick onto the teeth and assemble the hard part on mine is the piece below the wick that guides the wick in the bottom there needs to be a little slack so the wick can get raised and lowered. I hate to sound like I like ace hardware but from where I am at there guy there is great rebuilding these.

Burns unevenly and smokes


try emptying your heater of fuel,and lighting it letting burn for several hours. This will burn all of the deposits off of the wick. Make sure your heater is outside when you do this. when done lower the wick,fill with fuel,and let the wick soak for fifteen minutes before lighting.If this doesn't work try brushing the top of the wick a light brush of some sort and light.If still no luck,change the wick.

Have you checked the length of wick. May not be long enough to get down into fuel. RON

Change the wick


You must be very careful and follow the instructions exactly on these wicks. The pins must be inserted into the holes on the wick holder. It is also easy to install the wick holder upside down. Look for a small up arrow on the side.

You must soak your wick for at least 30 minutes, preferably 1 hour. I know it's tempting to light it right away, especially when you are freezing, but you must wait. Wicks work by using capillary action. The fuel must have time to soak in properly.

All wicks are NOT created equal. Buy good ones, under no circumstances should you buy the ones that Walmart sells. They **** and you will be changing it in a day or two. Home depot sells a decent one, but for the really good ones visit Miles Stair wick shop. He also has some good info to deal with condensation and moisture problems.

Also note these heaters will not work if they are dirty. They must be absolutely clean of all dirt and debris, every single part. Especially the parts that come in contact with the wick.

Regular maintenance, good wicks and good fuel will keep these heaters working.
