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.

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.

Have a Dyna Glo RMC-95-C2 and I can't get it to lite.

You have to change the batteries.. the manufacturer shipped it with **** batteries.

also take it apart.. very simple and clean out any soot..

Soot will cause heavy smoking...

The wick should last more than a year ....

Filters for dyna-glo pro

You can make your own filters out of felt and I have also found that with some minor modifications most of the parts from Mr. Heater will work with Dyna Glo. I have a 170btu kerosene heater and just installed an ignition, a high limit control and a flame sensor from Mr. Heater and it works like new.

well, somebody once told me that if you add a quart of oil to 5 gal of kero, it makes a good diesel substitute. So, in theory, I would add a little ethinal (corn gas) to the kero.
