    I have this same problem. Where is the pilot orifice?

  • Vern Janisch Oct 16, 2013

    There is no pilot.. It has an electric start. There is a fuel filter that goes into the tank which may have dirt in it. I just replaced mine, about $12. Also clean the electric start mechanism. You have to take off the handle and both sides (there is one screw towards the back) then you can see the screws which holds the top shrouds on. from there it's easy to see how it works.

Take the top off of the heater and and clean the nozzel orifice, while you have it apart wipe off the photo cell and clean and regap spark plug. The nozzel unscews and you can clean it with a bread tie.

After this clean or change the fuel filter in the tank, and finally check the pump pressure and make sure it is inline with the owner manual. This is assuming that it is firing to begin with

    sounds like it may very well be a photo cad cell problem. If the cad cell is dirty or broken, it does not "see" a flame and then shuts the unit down on safety. Try cleaning the front glass eye of the cad cell with a Q-tip.

Our dyna glo pro kerosene heater 2 year old heater still works, but not near as hot as it should be and has some fumes like it is not burning the kerosene efficiiently. We tried calling the manufactor from the users manual, but we hear they have gone out of bussiness. How can we get parts? We think it is the fuel pressure regulator. CFM is the manufactor.

You might have dust in the pilot orfice . If you do the pilot flame curves up and dosen't touch the thermo coupling enough .

I have a Dyna-Glo heater, model #RMC-FA50A, heater will not get hot and there is a odar and eye burning smell after running a short time.

When this type of problem happens, you most likely need to take apart your heater and clean it well. If it still doesn't work after that, blow it out with an air compressor. If then it still isn't working, I suggest you sell that heater and buy a new one.

We bought two heaters right before Christmas and have returned both of them for replacements and the problem continues. The heater burns great for about three weeks then the wick starts to burn low and...

What you described, usually occurs when the heater runs out of kerosene or the wick is not turned up gradually, as it burns away from normal usage.

If what you described had only happened once, I would say, the wick may have been originally installed improperly by the manufacturer. But, for it to happen twice in such a short period of time, discounts that idea.

Back, before we went exclusively the selling gas heaters, gas fireplaces, gas logs, etc. We stocked, sold & serviced these heaters. They were very reliable and had only minimal problems with them. In those few cases that we did, the majority were caused by operator error ( they didn't read & follow the Owners Manual instructions) and were easily solved.

The only other thing that "may" be causing your problem is contaminated kerosene. In which case, buy your kerosene form a different supplier. And properly dispose of what you currently have.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

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.
