Fix Butane Lighter won't spark? Troubleshooting & Tutorial​

Normally, the torch lighter usually keeps a few minutes of low temperature after refilling, you should ignite it after a while. If the torch lighter sparks but doesn’t light after refill, this troubleshooting guide may help.

Troubleshooting & Tutorial

1. Check if the filled gas has the same purity as the butane filled before. It is recommended to purchase relevant accessories from brand manufacturers as much as possible.

2. Check whether the air inlet is blocked by foreign objects.

3. Whether the igniter has enough power and whether there is damage.

4. Try turning up to “+” the lighter valve. To do that, please adjust it higher by a little, testing whether it can be used normally. Do not turn the valve up too much at one time, or the jet flame will be too big or fail to hit.

5. Adjust the ignition wire or replace the flint. The specific investigation steps are as follows.

If you’re using a piezo lighter:

1) Firstly Completely close the valve

2) Then observe the moment when the lighter is started, you can see the spark of the ignition wire. (If no sparks are produced, your lighter has reached the end of its life and needs to be replaced with a butane gas lighter.)

If the spark is generated on the edge of the butane spray outlet, you can adjust the lead wire with a screwdriver so that the ignition wire is directly above the air outlet.
