Why is my torch lighter not igniting after refilling?
Some people complain that their inflatable lighters can’t hit after refilling the butane fuel. First, you need to purge any remaining air and fuel from the torch lighter. Then, you can pump the butane fuel into the lighter and wait a few minutes before you test it to make sure it’s working. Here are roughly the following reasons for this situation.
1. The gas valve is too open, and the flame disappears in a flash during the fast spread. Try to turn the gas valve down, but adjust it again if the air is not enough to ignite.
2. The pressure of the butane fuel gas you buy is not enough. It is recommended to buy high-pressure butane. Don’t forget to check the pressure outside the cylinder before purchasing it.
3. The fuel gas purity is not enough. Some unbranded or pirated gas can have your lighter fail to ignite. Some bad gas will also contain impurities, which may cause the lighter outlet to be blocked. Try to discharge the gas in the lighter before refilling it. Well, this situation is relatively rare, so don’t worry too much.
4. Wait for 5 minutes after filling the gas before using it. If it still does not work, open the valve slightly (that is, turn slightly to the “+” side). Due to the temperature of butane gas being very low, you need to allow enough time for your lighter to cool off before you try to refill it completely.
5. The fuel gas didn’t fill in well (many novices encounter this problem). The way to verify is to release the gas and see if any gas comes out. Some torch lighters need to adjust the gas valve to the minimum. Otherwise, it isn’t easy to inflate. If your butane lighter inflator port gets blocked, follow this tutorial to clean your torch lighter.
6. For an inductive touch lighter, please try another button battery if without any sound while touching.
