SOURCE: 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.

the wick could be dirty and or burnt not allowing for the know to be moved to the off position, I would suggest cleaning the wick or replacing before doing anything else.

SOURCE: 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.

I need to know how to replace the wick and what size wick is required, I guessed a 95mm. The dial that controls the wick wont stay turned holding the wick up so i cant light the heater. would this be due...


It possibly could, if the wick is not installed properly. Also, the height mechanism (the control knob and the gears) may have lost it's tension and will need to replaced.

However, without knowing what brand/manufacturer and model number kerosene heater you have, there's not much more I can tell you.

I can't turn off my heater. Knob wont turn?


If the knob is still jammed when you read this and the heater is still burning (Gosh, it must be hot), just firmly bump the heater on it's side (don't burn yourself, though) so that the tip over switch will disengage the wick and the heater will go out. The other good thing is that it will also unjam your knob.

Please be very careful doing this.

I cant shut the heater off. The knob wont turn to the left. Even the shut off switch on the side wont turn the heater off. What should I try?


Try tilting the heater so the flame extinguisher snuffs it out. Please do this out side as it really does stink when it is shut off this way. After it cools please take it apart and check the wick you have a problem in your heater and something is bound up in the wick assembly. Take your time and do this outside as well because it is a messy job and kerosene stinks. Your wick should turn up and down with little to no resistance.

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.

Can't adjust flame


Sounds like maybe you need to reset the emergency shutoff:
Turn the knob all the way to the left, then depress the small lever that is inside the hole to the left of the knob. While holding down the lever, turn the knob to the right until it stops. If the unit is working right, you will hear a rachet-type sound, which resets the shutoff mechanism. You should then be able to adjust the wick.
You might want to check out milesstair.com. Lots of great info.
