Question about Corona 23-DK Compact Heater

1 Answer

Two small tubular sleeves

I took the cage and main cabinet apart to get at the wick.. Two small metal sleeves fell on the floor. they are a zinc/brassy color and i don't know where they go for re-assembly. the owners manual doesn't mention them. thanks for the help.

The two sleeves go between the cage ends thus creating a "connection", and covering the ends of the two parts of the cage (stick the sleeves on one side, then insert the end on the other side of the cage).Make sense?

How do you replace just the top part of the wick on a comfort glow GR9B kerosene heater?


    • Remove the base plate from your Comfort Glow heater and expose the fuel tank. Lift the fuel tank out of the heater and set it to one side, well away from the heater. Note that the fuel tank is not connected to anything and will slide out easily.
    • 2 Run the heater until all the fuel in the lines is used, a process called "dry burnicon1.png," which usually only takes a few minutes. The fire will go out when the lines are empty. Turn the heater switch off and allow it to cool.
    • 3 Take the batteries out of the battery compartment on the back of the heater. This is an important safetyicon1.png step that keeps the heater from accidentally coming on while you are working on it.
    • 4 Lift the wick ring up and off, then remove the two nuts that secure the wick. The wick ring fits around the wick and the draft pipe -- the hollow tube that holds the wick -- and serves to hold the wick firmly in place.
    • 5 Slide the wick up as far as possible to reveal the positioning pin -- the small metal pin near the bottom of the wick. This pin is part of the wick and helpsicon1.png to ensure it is installed correctly. Push it out through the positioning hole in the draft pipe and lift the wick out of the heater.
    • 6 Fit the new wick onto the draft pipe and engage the positioning pin in the hole by pushing it in until it clicks into place. Move the wick down into the heater and replace the two nuts to secure it.
    • 7 Measure the distance between the wick and the draft pipe with the clearance gauge. The distance between the wick and the draft pipe should be the same all the way around, to ensure an even burn. Adjust the set screws as necessary to create even spacing. These are the small screws spaced evenly around the draft pipe that, when turned, move the pipe slightly so you can correct the spacing between the draft pipe and the wick.
    • 8 Replace the wick ring over the wick. Return the batteries to the battery compartment and the fuel tank to its compartment. The fuel tank will slide securely into its compartment in only one way. Replace the fuel compartment cover to complete the project.

Tips & Warnings
  • Keep the heater set on medium to medium-high for best results. Setting it too low or too high may cause soot to accumulate on the wick.
  • When operating a kerosene heater indoors, always have a working carbon monoxide alarm and a smoke alarm. These heaters are generally safe when in use, but an alarm will provide a safety backup in case the heater malfunctions

The wick will not raise


If you allowed the fuel to run out then the wick is probably ruined, you will have to replace it.

How do i change the wick?


You need a pair of Pliers, a flat-tip screwdriver and a plastic bag (for old wick)
ALSO - make sure the tank is empty (or as close as possible)
1. Turn the control knob to OFF.
2. On the left and right side (bottom, just under the wire cage are two cabinet screws. Remove these.
3. Using the handle, lift straight up to remove the cabinet (entire upper assembly)
4. Gently pull off the wick adjustment knob (you will need to push in the little square button.
5. Remove the "dressing plate" (the ring about 3" high) that the "Off" "Low" and "High" markings. The chain attaches this the fuel cap, but you don't have to remove the cap. Just set the "dress plate" ring aside as far as the chain lets you.
6. Either trip the manual shut-off or push against the wobbly pendulum to the left of the control knob shaft to drop the wick all the way down.
7. Remove the four wing nuts that holds the heater on the wick assembly and carefilly lift teh sick assembly from the heater.
8. Reset the automatic shut-off, put the know back on temporarily and raise the wick all the way.
9. Turn the Wick Assembly upside down. Place the white plastic strip, packed with the new Wick, on the Wick Cover to protect your fingers.
10. While holding the Wick Assembly upside down, pull off the Wick Cover with a sharp tug.
11. Remove the Wick while folding it to the inside. (Remove the Wick Sleeve together with the Wick).
12. Take the new wick and insert the Wick pins into the three holes of the Wick Sleeve. (Make sure the short portion of the Wick is UP.)
13. Attach the Wick wo the retainer teeth of the Wick Sleeve stick into it, making sure the Wick fits evenly arount the inside with no wrinkles or bunching.
14. Fit the Wick and Wick Sleeve back onto the Wick Guide, making sure you fit the pins through the slanted grooves of the Wick Guide and Press on each of the three pins from the back, making sure they are inserted securely through the holes on the Wick Guide. (This is where most people screw up Wick Replacement, so make sure you get this right)
15. Turn the Wick Adjustment Knob to make sure the Wick slides up and down freely. (Note, the wick should automatically be set to 3/8 of an inch when fully raised.)
16. Turn the Wick Assembly upside down and replace the Wick Cover by: Align the four tabs on teh Wick Cover with the four screw holes on the bottom of teh assembly and snap it into place.
17. Hold the Set Lever to down position with your finger.
18. Remove the protective strips from the Wick Cover. Turn the Wick Adjustment Knob to the fully raised position and light pull on the "skirt" of the Wick to remove any slack. Then press the skirt lightly onto the teeth on the Wick Cover to hold it in place.
19. Replace the Wick Assembly on the heater WITH THE WICK RAISED. Replace the wing nuts, tightening gradually, tightening opposites sides first(If counting clockwise, tighten screw 1, 3, 4, 2 - go through several rounds, tightening gradually so it seats evenly
20. Before further reassembly, trip the Auto shut-off and reset it to make sure it works properly. Test the Wick adjustment knob to make sure Wick slides up AND down freely.
21. Remove the knob and replace the "dressing plate ring.
22. Replace the entire upper assembly "Heater Cabinet" and repalce the two screws. Replace the Wick Adjustment Knob.

Corona DK 23 kerosene heater won't start


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.

Noisy kickspace heater


it probably is a sealed motor but if you have access to it you may be able to oil it with a very thin oil - like 3 in one oil. the bearings are undoubtedly oil-lite which is a porous bronze bearing pressed into the end bells of the motor. for fractional horsepower motors I'd go to grainger dot com to see if a replacement can be found.
