Stinks? Are you using old Kerosene? Have you replaced the wick recently? Is there soot on the inside or around the top of the heater? If you answered 'Yes' to the first question, then you know what the the solution is. If the unit has soot on or around it, then the problem is with the wick. It may need to be replaced or if it's fairly new, just trimming the top with a pair of scissors may be enough. As the wick height is concerned, it depends on how much heat you're looking for. Generally, the wick height shouldn't exceed 1/2" from the top of the adjustment mantle. Of course, it can be turned down some, once the area heats to the desired comfort level. The final question about the odor or it's cause. Have you painted, stained or cleaned your carpeting recently.? If you have, the heater is picking up the residual odors from those things and making it 50 times worse.

Hope this all helped solve your problem. Please let me know.

I have Dynaglo RMC-95 in Nigeria and the wick is bad . Where and how can i get replacement.


Most hardware stores and home centers carry wicks for kerosene heaters, in season. Since you know your model number, it won't be hard to find one there.

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.

Dyna glo RMC 95 C6 kerosene heater, BRAND NEW. Wick and flame seem very low. At Max the wick height is 3/8(suggested height by manufacturer), flame is quite low, and not very hot at all


1. Check to make sure you using fresh clean kerosene fuel. 2. Make sure you fill the heater and let it set for at least an hour, 2 hours is better. 3. If either of those solutions don't fix the problem, return to the store.
I have the same heater and just changed the wick. When working correctly, it should be so hot that it's uncomfortable to hold your hand 2 feet over it.

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!

Can not replace wick in dyna glo serial number RMC-95-C2


As "guest" reported, the wick replacement for RMC95 series is the same as his posting for the DH2301.
After calling my local Tractor Supply and searching the net, I had it but it ain't easy. My sleeve doesn't come out necessitating cranking the knob up (wick will be level with the top) find the three holes (more like two are slot and one is a hole) then where the diagonal grooves are, there is ANOTHER HOLE which you must snap the pin in both of those all at once!
The good news is, you get one in, the rest are cake. I was pretty frustrated so I hope this helps others.
