Question about Corona 23-DK Compact Heater
How do I "dry burn" the wick?
Make sure the unit is almost out of fuel. Take it outside where the wind won't blow on it. Start up the heater, and set it on 'high'. Now you just wait until it runs out of fuel and the flame burns out. The wick is made of fiberglass and won't burn. Only the tar the kerosene leaves behind will be consumed when it runs out of fuel. After this first burn off, wait 15 minutes and try to relight the burner to get any last fuel that was in the lower part of the wick. Note: the heater should still be out of fuel. Let it burn until it goes out again. Now check out the wick. It should be nice and clean. If not, what is left on it should brush of or be able to be crushed by your fingers. Refuel and try out the unit. It should work as normal now. This procedure produces fumes when the tar burns off, so make sure you do it outside!
