Purge Air / Butane: Please make every effort to clear your lighter of all liquids and extra air. The presence of air inside the lighter can prevent it from igniting. Turn your lighter upside down and away from your face and skin to cleanse it. On the bottom of the lighter, look for the fuel valve. Press down on the lighter valve using a lighter tool or a small pointed object. Maintain a safe distance between the lighter and your face, skin, and clothing. The contents of the gasoline tank will be released by the lighter. Try refilling your lighter with butane once it is visible empty and no longer makes noise.
Remove Debris from the Burners: Small pieces of ash, tobacco, or debris might get lodged in the lighter’s burners, preventing it from working properly. You can either use a can of pressurized air or forcefully blow into the burner area to clean the debris.
Torch lighters should be filled with refined butane: The performance of your lighter can be harmed if you use unrefined or over-refined butane. This can result in uneven lighting or clogging of the gasoline lines over time. We recommend our Jetline brand butane, which will consistently ignite at any altitude and outperform any other brand on the market. If you don’t want to use Jetline brand butane, any 5x refined brand will suffice. Any refinement will result in a weaker ignition. Your fuel hoses and ignition system will clog if you use anything less refined.
3. My lighter has gasoline, which I can hear, but no spark.
Please send your lighter in for service under the manufacturer’s warranty. If you attempt to service the lighter yourself, your warranty will be voided.
Can butane lighters be refilled?
Shake your butane can and put the can’s stem against the refill valve (while in a straight up-and-down position). Hold for 5 seconds before releasing. Repeat as needed in shorter spurts until the tank is full.
How do you adjust the flame on a JetLine lighter?
2. There is fuel in my lighter; I can hear it and see a spark.
Adjust Flame Height: Inadequate flame height is the most common cause of a lighter failing to ignite. Please discover the fuel valve / flame height adjustment ring by turning your lighter upside down. An arrow mark with a + plus and minus symbol will be visible around the fuel valve. Turn the fuel valve to the + plus position in modest increments with a lighter tool or a small flat head screw driver. To see if the flame has increased to your satisfaction after making a modification, try depressing the ignition away from your face, skin, and clothing. If not, increase the flame height by a modest amount in the plus plus direction. As needed, repeat the process.
What is the screw on the bottom of a butane lighter?
Work in a well-ventilated location: Your lighter may still contain a small amount of flammable butane, which might irritate your eyes or skin if you don’t work in a well-ventilated area. Open the windows or turn on a fan to promote air circulation in the space. Also, wherever possible, utilize a clean and solid surface such as a desk, countertop, or table. When refilling your lighter, the residual butane may spray across your work surface, so make sure to lay down some newspaper sheets or cloth.
Make sure the lighter is at room temperature: If you haven’t used your lighter in a while, give it at least 30 minutes before refilling it. Because butane is highly flammable, you must wait for your lighter to cool completely before refilling it. You can speed up this procedure by placing your lighter in the refrigerator for 5 minutes.
Reduce the flame intensity of your lighter to the bare minimum: Most butane lighters have a screw on the bottom that acts as a flame intensity limiter. A big brass screw with a slot for a screwdriver serves as the adjustment screw. Other types of lighters may have a wheel instead of a screw for adjusting the flame height. You won’t need a screwdriver to set it to the minimum in that scenario. If you do require one, turn the dial clockwise as far as it will go with a little screwdriver. The flame height adjustment must be set to the minimum height setting, which you must seek for.
To purge the lighter, use the screwdriver to push the refilling valve to let out the air inside. To avoid getting butane in your eyes, nose, or mouth, hold the lighter away from your face while doing this, then press down on the valve with the end of the screwdriver to open it. Any air or gas left inside the lighter will prevent butane from being injected and may possibly cause it to break. In this case, keep the gas valve open until you no longer hear a hissing sound to ensure that all air or remaining gas is fully out of the container.
Turn the lighter upside down: When refilling your lighter, you’ll also need to hold the butane can upside down. This is necessary to avoid mistakenly putting air into the lighter, which will dilute the gasoline inside and cause it to malfunction.
Shake the gas can: Because butane can settle to the bottom of the can, you should shake it about 6 times before using it.
Inject the butane: Now, while holding both parts upside down, insert the stem of the can into the refill valve on the lighter. Then, insert the end of the butane can’s stem into the refilling valve. It should be snugly fitted over the valve. If the butane can is either too big or too little, the best thing you can do is use an adaptor to secure it. An adapter may be included with the butane can. If it doesn’t, you can easily find an adapter for the butane can stem online. Start pumping for 3 seconds when the stem is well fitted with the valve on the lighter. It should take 2 to 3 3 second bursts to fill the lighter, depending on how empty it is.
Wait 5 minutes to allow the butane from the can to come to room temperature because it was compressed and cooler than room temperature. Waiting 5 minutes allows any extra butane from the lighter’s exterior to evaporate, ensuring that the lighter does not catch fire when you try to test it. If there is still butane visible on the outside of your lighter, wait 5 minutes before using it to allow it evaporate.
Adjust the flame height to your favorite setting before lighting the lighter. Hold the lighter at a safe distance away from you and turn on the ignition mechanism. You should have a flame that burns evenly. You may need to add more butane if the lighter does not produce a flame or if the flame is very weak. Start and pause the lighter a few times once it’s creating flame to ensure it’s flowing smoothly.
How do I know if my lighter is butane?
A refillable lighter’s tip fits into a specifically designed hole on the can of butane. Examining your lighter to see if it’s butane refillable is a straightforward process.
Turn the lighter upside down while holding it. Look for a little hole near the bottom of the lighter near the center.
Insert a small jeweler’s Phillips-head screwdriver or a small brad nail into the hole and press forward slightly, pointing the hole away from your face. When you press down on a refill hole, air and butane flow out.
Why is my lighter not working after refilling?
When you refill a butane lighter, a small amount of air enters the tank. The tank gets overrun with an air pocket, or bubble, after 3 or 4 refills. This air keeps the fuel from filling up the tank. To compress the fuel valve and release the air, turn the lighter upside down and use a little screwdriver or a thin and narrow instrument. It’s also possible that a small amount of fuel will escape. The air has been completely discharged when the valve stops hissing.
Fill the tank and lower the flame height to the lowest setting (-). The lighter will rapidly cool down after you inject butane into the tank. Allow the lighter to warm up in your palm or pocket before lighting it. Return the flame height to the desired setting and continue to burn.
Can you refill butane canisters?
Butane has a lower vapor pressure than whatever combination was initially in your hiking canister. Refilling with butane is relatively safe.
