Did this video help you?

Rachel Pavlov: thank you so much was so useful gave me confidence to do it on my own

SweptEdge: Greate video! I just got one that is the same type. This will come in handy. Thanks

Shelby: Husband replaced wick after watching your video but when he lit the heater the flames were much too high and would not turn off. He had to pour water on heater to put out flames. What went wrong? Is the heater any more good after water enter unit?

Rochelle Adams: Thanks this was helpful. 

james showacre: My wick got wet while replacing how long with it take for my wick to dry and can I reuse it

Joseph Alfieri: Great video!! Huge help. You saved me $144 for a new heater versus the $9.88 for the new wick.

Roger Neff: If not covered, an easy way to loosen thumb screws is with a use of a strait-slot screwdriver. Place the tip between the threaded screw and the "wings" of the nut. Use the fulcrum (sry spl?) of the tool to your advantage. 

Regina Brooks: Thanks for the info. I did as you said and presto, I'm done...that was too easy..let me find another one to fix...Gina the handywomen. Took about 5 or so minutes...GOT HEAT ???

h bohrer: It's daytime and he's burnin' gasoline to light up his workbench. My Kinda Guy!

SK Kevin Young: Yes you can, I raised mine about a quarter of an inch. It works just like it did when it was new.

turboedDC5: Have the same one and it's a pos. Go through 2 wicks a season. It's a spoiled bitch and smokes whenever I use cheap pump kerosene.

Gary Stopp: I have changed the wick and my heater is smoking? What could cause smoking

Fugitive Irons: Gloves are nice, but it wont kill you if you dont wear them. Lol

Rick Winkel: Mine is not shutting off easily with auto shutoff. How can I fix it?

Susan Rogers: I found a heater similar to this one yesterday, a bit larger for $20 at the thrift store. Had no idea how to change the wick, thanks for posting this video, I have successfully changed the old wick out with no problems. I'm going to use veggie oil in mine, it's free and it works!

SK Kevin Young: Very informative is there any way you could set the wick in higher rather than replacing the old one? I am going to find out. I am headed to the garage to fix mine.

ATCRyderX©: I'm amazed how quick you did that around the 7 Second Mark. Is the wick not pre soaked? I'm about to ready to smash mine into a motherfreaking pieces.

theIAMofME: Great video! We are expecting an ice storm this weekend and just bought one. I know it will be awhile before I have to change the wick but, wanted to make sure I knew just in case and found your video. Besides manufacturer recommendations in the manual, how often do "you" think the wicks need changing? Hours of use, etc.

CheAna Frazier: THanks for the video! I really needed this tutorial. You're a life saver :) Thanks!

Teresa Barnhart: Ok thank u

TheJerryBarton: Question....I am having problems with my heaters...I change the wicks and they work great for a day or so and then they hardly burn after that...Ive tried buying kerosene at different places...ive tried a kerosene additive......It barelay throws off heat...if I turn them off I cant get them to light or they just burn in one spot on the wick...Im putting the wick in the right way and Ive never had trouble before with it until this year...ive tried 3 different heaters of mine and they all do the same thing...could it be the wicks Im buying...maybe they are cheap...they are the right ones for the heaters...ive checked everything and no on else seems to know whats wrong...thanks!!!

Bob Chamberlain: one important and helpful hint, that was missed, there are three small philips screws just outside of the wick, should be removed (and the cover it holds) in order to get easy access to the wing nuts. on this model. otherwise it is very difficult.

John Sullivan: Very helpful thanks for the video

Teresa Barnhart: What size wic or serial # does this unit take to replace?

amosunknown: So, my set button doesn't shut off the heater. I don't know that it really ever did. Any ideas how to get the little lever inside to catch again? As it is I just jostle it some to wobble the weight and it'll shut off properly... The last person to change the wick had it set pretty high I think, (we bought it at auction), will it just be forever smoky or will it even out? At least I think it was installed high... it's pretty smoky/fumy.

nzinga zindua: How safe is Vegetable Oil in Kerosene Heater? And are there other oils (less expensive) that can be used in Kerosene Heater? Thanks for vid.

Vickie Carpenter: VERY informative and a good view of what you were doing! I DID think you said you were going to give us info on where to buy wicks at a good price but I didn't see/hear it...

Vlad Tverskoy: Зачем Вы постоянно повторяете, что оперативная память 2 Гб является излишней? Вы ошибаетесь. Почитайте специальную литературу, чтобы узнать, для чего нужна большая оперативка. И что это за антирекклама с фотографированием? Плёночку-то надо снять, иначе получится ерунда. Очень жаль, ведь камера на этом смартфоне замечательная, а если судить по Вашей фотографии, то возникает желание перестать смотреть Ваш обзор и обратиться к другой модели.

Shyb0y1988: nakuha lang nila ang ibang probinsya noong nagkasundo na ang spain at america na ipagbibili na nila ang pilipinas sa mga kano. hindi ibig sabihin noon na natalo ni emilio aguinaldo ang mga kastila dahil lumabas nalang sila sa kuweba ng biak na bato noong wala na ang mga kastila. si antonio luna naging active lang noong filipino american war at hindi na nabawi ni emilio aguinaldo ang cavite noong panahon ng kastila. nagiimbento ka nlng. magbasa ka ng libro. basahin mo yung la revolucion filipina!
