Take the top off of the heater and and clean the nozzel orifice, while you have it apart wipe off the photo cell and clean and regap spark plug. The nozzel unscews and you can clean it with a bread tie.

After this clean or change the fuel filter in the tank, and finally check the pump pressure and make sure it is inline with the owner manual. This is assuming that it is firing to begin with

Black smoke coming kerosene


hi dear,

First of all make sure that the heater is filled with K-1 Kerosene. Other fuel, such as gasoline, home heating oil, etc. do not burn hot, causing the heater to burn out of control. NEVER USE GASOLINE or any other fuel described as flammable. If there is any question about the fuel in your heater it is best to drain it and replace the wick and start with fresh K-1 Kerosene. If you are sure of your kerosene and your heater is giving off sooty black smoke it is a sign that the fuel/air mix is off. Make sure your heater is not in a draft. Too much air can create a very high flame condition. Avoid placing the heater in drafty areas or under a ceiling fan. Make sure the burner chimney is seated correctly. If the burner chimney didn't seat into place correctly after lighting you may be getting a very high flame on one side. If it's a high orange flame all the way around try rolling the wick adjuster knob down within the adjustment range - the wick may just be raised too high. If these things do not fix the problem wait until the heater is cool and inspect the burner cylinder. If there are any holes plugged with soot it needs to be cleaned, or if it's dented or buckled it needs to be replaced. After you have checked the fuel and burner you should check to make sure the wick is installed at the correct height. Refer to the owner's manual for exact wick height. If the wick is installed correctly and there is no other obvious defect it is best to take the heater to a service center to determine the cause. Our Find a Retailer tool can be used to help find a servicing center.

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.

I can't answer about moth balls cleaning the wick but off the top of my head I would not try it as I do not know just what gases your unit would give off. I use kerosene heaters and find that after about 5 tanks of fuel I put on a pair of household rubber gloves, remove the chimney and turn the wick all the way up. Then I roll the wick between my fingers and get the hard carbon off. Once I have the wick clean I use the shop vac to vacuum it all up. I have found that by doing this my wick is never dirty, I do not get any smoke and the wicks last more than 20 years. Probably a better idea than moth balls. Let me know how you make out.

Wick not burning properly and smells


You need to use pure kerosene do not use died or color kerosene it depletes the wick faster and causes a distinct odor. Pure kerosene should be clear.

Heater turns off leaving lots of smoke and is hard starting


If this is a kerosene heater,the wick is most likely not adjusted up enough,or the wick is contaminated.The fuel could be contaminated also.Remove the old wick and replace it,and refuel it with clean kerosene,after you pour the old out.

turn the wick control knob all the way up before installing new wick. Put it all back together and make sure wick goes all the way down inside the groove when you push the shutoff lever. Do this several times. If not, then heater WILL NOT shut off !! P.S..use clear K-1 kerosene....the K-1 with red color seems to make bad carbon deposits on the wick...in a short time the wick becomes crusted and will not drop down to extinguish the flame. I had to open it up and put baking soda on the wick to put it out.

Dyna-glo kerosene heater (rmc-55-r7 )


wicks won't light for usually one of 2 reasons. water in the kerosene, which means a new wick and new fuel. or build-up on the wick. check to see if the wick is hard. your wick should be soft. burning out the heater until all fuel is used either by running down all the fuel in the unit or removing the fuel can and lighting to burn off all fuel in the bottom will prevent the wick from getting hard.

Honeywell VisionPro TH8110R1008 controlling a Carrier FA4ANF018 electric furnace/AC. Heater won't turn on. Honeywell VisionPro TH8110R1008 controlling a Carrier FA4ANF018 electric furnace/AC. As best I can recollect, the sequence of events went like this: Furnace was working normally. Thermostat was set at 70. Turned temperature on thermostat down to 67 and left the apartment. Didn't notice if furnace was running or not at the time, nor if it was running and shut off when I lowered the temp. Came back an hour later. Furnace was running and temp was up to 72 degrees. Thermostat looked normal. No indication of low batteries. Tried turning the system off on the thermostat. Furnace continued to run. Nothing on the thermostat would affect the furnace. Eventually turned off the circuit breaker (for the apartment electrical, not the breaker on the furnace) to stop furnace. Waited. Turned breaker on. Furnace stayed off. Batteries failed in thermostat and screen went dark with barely readable failing battery message. Put in new batteries. Thermostat fired up but still wouldn't control the furnace. Switched to cooling. AC went on. Couldn't turn AC off. Had to turn breaker off again. Turned breaker on. Thermostat displayed "Wait" message when I tried turning on the furnace. Waited half an hour. Wait message disappeared. Still can't turn furnace on. Slid out lithium backup battery and slid back. Thermostat makes appropriate click sounds as if it is turning the furnace on or off, but furnace doesn't respond. Equipment Status screen shows furnace on or off depending on thermostat settings. Set thermostat to System Off. Checked breaker on side of furnace. Was off. Turned on. Turned temp up on thermostat. Thermostat clicked, but furnace did not go on.
