I must warn you, replacing the wick is a very tricky job. You should take it to the place where you buy the wick and let them install it.  Call first to make sure they provide this service.

The replacement wick you purchase will have the instructions on how to install it. Be sure you have your model number with you, when you go to purchase it. Most local independent hardware stores (True Value or Ace) stock the wicks. Where rubber gloves when replacing the wick. Especially if you still have kerosene in the tank.

How do I replace the wick on a corona 23. I lost my manual


If you've already purchased a new wick from a reputable dealer/retailer and its the one designated for your model Corona heater. The installation instructions come packaged with the wick. I would encourage you to wear rubber gloves if the heater tank still has kerosene in it.

How to replace the wick in corona 23dk


I believe you will find the instructions on or in the package of the new one. I've seen many styles of replacement wicks at Walmart. Also the replacement instructions will be in your owners manual.

Just pull it out with pliers. It has sharp directional tabs pointing down holding it in. Once the wick is pulled out, it is no good. New wick pushes right in.

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.

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.
