SOURCE: Dyno-Glo RMC-95-C7 kerosene heater. replaced wick

once the tank gets low(on E) put the heater outside and let the remaining fuel burn completely out. This will burn off the residue build up on the wick and make it easier to turn off manually. do this often. i also use an old toothbrush to "fluff up" the wick. if the residue is too hard for the toothbrush bristles, flip the toothbrush over and break up the residue with the back side of the toothbrush. once all (or nearly all) of the residue has burned off you may see some smoke when you ignite the wick again. also, it may smell for a bit. I always light and shut off the heater outdoors. I mounted a dolly (table withe 4 wheels) under the heater to make transporting it easier. hope this helps!

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

Need to see pictorial instruction on how to replace wick in a Dyna Glo RMC-95-C2 kerosene heater


I think the Dyna-glow RMC95 series of heaters are equivalent to DH2300 series heaters.
In any event, the wick you purchased should have ahd the installation instructions included with the wick.

If it didn't or you tossed it, Here's a link to the DH-2300 series heater's Owners Manual, which may help you.

Good luck. Be sure to wear rubber gloves when you try to install the wick. Particularly, if you still have kerosene in the tank.

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.

Need to know how to replace the wick


The first thing you need to determine is the correct model number of your heater. Once you've done that, go to the GHP Group Inc, website listing the heater manuals and locate the appropriate manual for your heater model and click on the link for your heater.

After you've selected the appropriate manual, you can either download it to your computer or print it out. Inside the manual you'll find the instructions on how to replace the wick. The kerosene heater manual I reviewed listed an incorrect phone number to call to order a replacement wick. I suggest you use the new GHP Group's number to order your replacement wick: (877) 447-4768.

If you have a different Dyna-Glo heater than a kerosene one, you should still be able to locate the appropriate manual on the GHP Group's heater website.

Hopefully, you'll have your heater up and working again in no time.

Change the wick


You must be very careful and follow the instructions exactly on these wicks. The pins must be inserted into the holes on the wick holder. It is also easy to install the wick holder upside down. Look for a small up arrow on the side.

You must soak your wick for at least 30 minutes, preferably 1 hour. I know it's tempting to light it right away, especially when you are freezing, but you must wait. Wicks work by using capillary action. The fuel must have time to soak in properly.

All wicks are NOT created equal. Buy good ones, under no circumstances should you buy the ones that Walmart sells. They **** and you will be changing it in a day or two. Home depot sells a decent one, but for the really good ones visit Miles Stair wick shop. He also has some good info to deal with condensation and moisture problems.

Also note these heaters will not work if they are dirty. They must be absolutely clean of all dirt and debris, every single part. Especially the parts that come in contact with the wick.

Regular maintenance, good wicks and good fuel will keep these heaters working.
