Wick won't light


I didn't realize how quickly condensation can enter the tank. Condensation will ruin the wick permanently, even a brand new wick.
To avoid condensation, do NOT empty the tank unless you are replacing the wick, or some other repair requires it. Likewise, do NOT burn the kerosene out, for the same reason: condensation.
When the tank is filled enough, condensation can still enter but the wick will be able to burn and you won't know the difference. But as soon as the kerosene is gone, all the wick has is water. 
STORAGE:  When you burn out the kerosene to store it, condensation can enter and you will not be able to use the wick again. So unless it's necessary, don't burn out the kerosene.
If you have to store the heater in a place that requires the tank to be empty, dissassemble the heater before you use it again and make sure the tank is completely dry and contains no water BEFORE you use it again.
I think but I'm not sure, that the tank must have been designed to let some condensation fall to the sides, or somehow get out of the way. But I'm certain this doesn't last because condensatiion is inevitable and it will accumulate.

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.

I have a 23-dk corona kerosene heater. it was smoking so i replaced the wick. after replacing the wick it still smokes heavy. how do i fix the problem.


Check all airvents into conbustion chamber. Make shure they are all clear of blockage. The heater needs air to burn fule properly. Check wick adjustment it may have to much wick.

Where can I find an Owner's manual for an Everglow Kerosene Heater or in structions on how to install the wick and burner.


First you need to get the shell off the unit, and get down to the main burner area. There should be 4 wing nuts holding the wick tower down to the fuel tank. These must be removed, and the wick and the adjuster apparatus removed up and over the top of the center tower. Having a towel or old rag handy to set the unit on when you get it off is a good idea, so you can work on it. Remove the old wick, taking care to see how the fabric band on the cloth wick is positioned on the bottom edge of the wick carrier band. Install the new wick at the same level as the old one on the carrier and set it aside. Make sure you clean the tower, especially all the black carbon buildup around the center and near the top. I use a wire brush on a cordless drill to buff the stuff off, works great. Remove the old kerosene from the tank and clean the tank best you can, then put the new wick inside the carrier, down on the tower, being careful to get the bottom portion of the wick down into the tank area, (it should be quite loose down there once you get the rest of the carrier on the tower. Make sure the whole apparatus sets down evenly and fairly easily on the bottom tank part and screw it down with the four wing nuts. I use a paper cup to pour clear, K1 kerosene onto the new wick all the way around the tower, then make sure it moves easily up and down with the height adjuster knob and while it's in a down position, pour some more kero in on it. You can pour several cups of kero on the new wick and then when it's working up and down well, turn it up and lite it before you put the whole thing all back together. It's best to do this outside as sometimes you can get smoking, if you don't get the flame spreader cage on quickly enough. Once it's on and the flames come up and look good, then turn it off, let it all cool off and you can put it back together. Remember, don't use anything but absolutely clean, clear, K1 Kerosene in the unit and burn it completely dry at least once a week, if you use it a lot. It's called dry burning, and it's a wick cleaning function. If you do this, the wick can last years and years.
