I just use a match. Turn the setting dial to High. Open the little door in front. The one with glass in it. Light the match. Push the pedal down that you normally use to start it with the battery starter. Put the match into the heater and touch it to the wick. With just a regular match, I can reach in far enough to light the wick. When you have a complete ring of fire, lower the pedal slowly and close the door. It will smoke briefly and then burn. After 15 minutes lower the wick till the flame is smaller and whiter.

I have a small propane reddy heater with an electric ignitor if power is out can i manually light it


Yes, you can. Use either a butane grill lighter or a long stick match. Make sure the control knob is in the "light" position and the wick is in the right position. Light the long stick match or butane grill lighter, press the control knob in and while holding it in, touch the flame of the match or butane grill lighter to the wick and the wick should ignite. Once it ignites, quickly remove the match without knocking the tip off into the heater.

Actually, Ami there's know way to know for sure, unless you cross referenced the Part/Item number for the wick with what Corona requires.

I hava an All Pro 65,000 BTU heater. It was working fine a week ago. The igniter glows, fuel mists but doesn't light off then shuts down. Ideas?


I am sure you have confirmed that the fuel is fresh and good, no water in it, etc.--
It is kerosene, not #2 Diesel fuel, right?

And the shutting down is good, if the flame does NOT ignite--- :-)
So we have to figure out why the fuel is not getting hot enough to ignite?


Question-- is the oil spray passing close enough to the ignitor?
And this unit does NOT use SPARK to ignite?, correct? --
for most of these heaters have spark ignition.. I am learning all the time, too!

How about checking the fuel pressure. and the air -- is it correct?
Check with your manual how to check and adjust.

After testing these tings, let us know what you learned

How do I start the heater?


This unit need 2 "D" cells in the back to power the igniter. I have several kerosene heaters like this and I find that the batteries are a waste of time. I use a disposable butane lighter to light them. Push on the igniter circuit to lift the chimney and use the lighter to ignite the unit. Let me know if you need any more help.

Dunill lighter - how do I fill it with butane?


  1. Ignore that other load of tosh.
  2. Do not refill your lighter immediately after using it. You should allow enough time for the lighter to cool off.
  3. The flame height adjuster on the bottom of the lighter should be set to minimum by turning CLOCKWISE with a small screw driver. The smaller, usually Phillips head, screw is for dismantling the lighter and should not be touched. The adjusting screw is a larger screw with a standard (slot) head. Some lighters come with a key to turn the adjusting screw. Some models have an adjusting wheel that requires no screwdriver. Please DO NOT FORCE the adjusting screw. If it is hard to turn in one direction this most likely means that the adjustment screw is already at the (-) or (+) limit. Try turning the other direction.
  4. Push the refilling valve with a screwdriver to let out the air inside until no hissing sound is heard. Hold the lighter away from your face. Air inside the fuel tank prevents butane gas from being injected into the tank and causes the lighter to malfunction.
  5. ALWAYS refill the lighter in an upside down position to avoid injecting air into the lighter.
  6. Shake the butane gas refill can, press the stem of the refill can directly onto the refill valve on the bottom of the lighter. Keep them in a straight position and let the gas go into the lighter for about 5 seconds. Repeat for a shorter period if needed.
  7. Allow 3-4 minutes to let gas and lighter components reach room temperature.
  8. Turn the flame adjuster counter clockwise to reach the desired flame height.
  9. Hold the lighter away from your face and body and ignite it carefully. If there is no flame, repeat the refilling process.

  10. If you experience gas leakage with a hissing sound while refilling the lighter, either you are not holding the lighter and gas can in a straight position or the stem of the gas can is not suitable for the lighter. In this case you need to use an adaptor which is usually supplied with the gas can.
  11. Premium butane is required to ensure optimum performance of your lighter. Lighters require the cleanest butane available at a pressure of 45 psi. Recommended using Premium Triple Refined Butane Gas that are packaged in 10-13 oz. cans with a metal fill tip nozzle. Non-premium butane with plastic fill tip nozzles are not recommended as they may cause inconsistent ignition and performance. Impurity of the gas can cause clogging of the burner valve or malfunctioning.

    WARNING: PLEASE, ALWAYS KEEP YOUR LIGHTER AWAY FROM THE REACH OF CHILDREN. USE COMMON SENSE IN HANDLING YOUR LIGHTER.

    Troubleshooting: If you are having problems with your lighter, make sure that:

    You are holding the lighter upside down while refilling. If you did not hold the lighter upside down, there will be air inside the butane tank. You will need to let the air out and try refilling again.

    The flame height is properly adjusted.

    You are not using cheap or incorrect fuel.

    There is no dirt or debris in the lighter. Try blowing forcefully into the top part of the unlit lighter.

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.

Electric starter


I have a different make and model, but many of these use a similar design. A battery pack (2 x D or C cell) is mounted on the kerosine tank. The batteries are used to heat a coil. The coil is pressed by an external button against the heater wick. Pressing the button also engages the switch, heating the coil until it glows red hot.

1. Open the burner chamber of the unit and confirm it has a wick installed (this is a used heater--who knows it's condition). Close the chamber.
2. Make sure the tip-over protection hasn't retracted the wick. Generally the tip-over protection is reset by a lever on the base of the burner.
3. Adjust the wick all the way up. A knob on the base of the burner does this.
4. Fully depress the electric starter until the coil touches the wick.
5. When the kerosine on the wick ignites, release the starter and adjust the wick to the desired level.

If the electric start coil does not glow, check the batteries. If the batteries are good, the starter coil may be bad. These are also
replaceable.
