Question about Corona 23-DK Compact Heater
Every 2 or 3 weeks I install a new wick into my heater. I've dumped the entire contents of the old kero and replace with fresh. and still have the same problem. A friend gave me an old kero heater of a different brand and it works fine. It smokes a little when I start it but fires up everytime. So it's not the brand of fuel I'm using.
Could be you got the flame a little too high so its burning off the top of the wick.

If you already had fuel in it after u replace the wick that was bad then the wick will need replacing again once the water gets into the wick ti wont light well... 2 things that I find that helps is using clean fuel, and I use an additive that helps remove water. My wicks last most of the winter with no problem, But the guy at the hardware store tells me once the wick has gotten watter trapped it it and starts to fail your just time for another replacement wick :(

Perhaos it is the quality of the kerosene creating tar deposits on the top of your wick? Have you examined the week at the end of the 2-3 week period? Is it black? Mybe you need to crack the tar and burn the wick dry weekly to keep it going?

Try buying your kerosene at a different location. I have the same heater and have experienced the same problem only to find that the kerosene I was buying was contaminated with water.I have found that condensation is not uncommon.Since I found a good source of kerosene ,my heater will run for a solid season on one wick with just a weekly dry burn to clean up the wick.
