I picked up one of these today at an antique shop had fuel in it already pretty dirty adjusted and trimmed wick 48A527C9-39A4-469E-B498-699E97742DCA.jpeg  and I’m not getting the blue flame or proper heat My guess is that I need a new Wick and fresh fuel would you all agree?

Yup, usually fresh fuel and a new wick will start you on your way to success.

I own two of those. I find them a bit touchy when trying to adjust to get the 'blue' flame and they don't have the BTU's a Perfection with a #500 wick does. But they work of course and if you live in a cool, not cold, climate they may be all you need to take the chill off.

Maybe, I put a new wick in one of mine and no matter how hard I try the blue flame escapes me.... Burns nice doesn't smell too bad for shop use. Let me know if you figure it out.

One thing I recall about them was the wick has to be lower than you might think before you get the 'blue' flame

So start with a low flame and work up from there is my advice.

The Wick Still has some adjustment is it possible to clean the original one to use it up?

Depends on how old it is and if it was plugged up with bad kero before they stopped running it. 

My experience is the old wicks smell like old kero, nasty.

Hi Joe,

With the aladdin blue flame, here are some things to check:

First, make sure the entire gallery is clean. they tend to get gummed up and the air flow holes plug up. Remove the burner and clean it like you would a coleman gen or other brass part, in citric and with wool. Do the same with the flame spreader.

Second, there is a particular fit between the top of the burner and the body of the heater that happens when you close the heater. If when filling or lighting, someone previously allowed the hinged area where the bottom and top meet to flex out of place, you may be off on the alignment and fit of the upper piece to the burner, and be getting improper/uneven airflow because of it.

Mine has that issue and you have to watch it through the window and tweak the fit by hand to get it burning nice and blue. There may or may not be a gasket there also. I've seen them with and without, and have never gotten a firm understanding of the default - whether there should be a gasket there or not

Last but not least, get an aladdin 3 inch wick cleaner, to help condition and shape the wick:
[3-Inch-Wick-Cleaner-A-e1558468429246-324x324] 

Use it after every run for a while with a new wick, and they run better and better and better.

I think they are seriously cool looking.

 I found one at a local yard sale cheap, cleaned it up and used it a couple times in shop and sold it. I could get blue flame, and good heat, but it took some fiddling, and more fiddling later, and more fiddling later. And more odor than a perfection.
  To be honest, I should have spent more time trying to find answers, but at that point I just was tired of messing with it.
Like Chucker says, it goes blue when you lower wick.
YES new fuel, yes you can clean wick, alcohol on it, shake, dry,  clean top good. Or just replace it.

My only concern is running this indoors even with ventilation.

Thanks. I’ve noticed if I run the cleaner tool over it before I light it, the flame does run smoother that when I don’t
