KOEHRING Kerosene Heater Wicks

Koehring heaters were also sold under the "Comfort Glow" label, and often the model numbers for "Comfort Glow" were affixed to Koehring brand heaters.  If you do not find your exact model number listed below, please look at the page for Comfort Glow heaters

The finest quality, longest lasting CUI wicks - made by Hattersley in England! 
Wicks are individually packaged, include instructions and mailed worldwide.

Panasonic made heaters using two-part wicks #15 and #16 which were sold under an amazing variety of name brands, including Koehring, Comfort Glow, Sears, Handy Master, etc.  The model numbers applied to those heaters were confusing and often the wrong model number applied to a heater, resulting in a heater being marked as using wick #16 when it fact it requires wick #15.  Not my fault!  It is best to measure the central air pillar around which the wick fits:  If about 3", order wick #16; if about 3 1/2", order wick #15. If you want to measure the wick without removing it from the heater, wick #16 is close to 3.60" in outside diameter, wick #15 is 4" in outside diameter. See also the model numbers for Comfort Glow if not listed below - they crossed those numbers, too.
Installation instructions for the two-part wicks #15 and #16 are here.

Owner's manual for a Koehring radiant heater using wick #16.

Koehring heaters which require wicks #15 & #16: These are a two part wick, an upper portion which is fiberglass and has the top burning surface, and a lower cotton section to which is attached the wick raising mechanism.  The two-piece wick was designed so that the lower section could be used over and over again, so attaching a new top section (#16T) was a design feature of this wick. To keep the lower section of the wick in top condition, the heater should always be stored "dry," and the lower section should be soaked in 91%+ alcohol once a year or so.  Pure alcohol is available in most hardware stores, being sold as Shellac Thinner. The alcohol will absorb any kerosene residue and water, and thus restore the cotton filaments to the full capillary action needed to ensure proper "wicking" action to the upper portion of the wick. The wick must then be thoroughly dried by evaporation, the wick raising mechanism lightly oiled, and it is ready to use again or store dry in a freezer bag until needed.  The entire two part wick is often not available - get them while you can!
