How to Refill a Torch/Jet-flame Lighters

Having many torch/jet-flame lighters I have to made it a habit out of refilling them,lol. However, there is a wrong way to do it. Yes, your lighter will get fuel, but you could damage it if it is do wrong.

Refilling a torch lighter:

Step 1. Turn the flame adjustment screw all the way clockwise to shut off all fuel flow. (usually next to the refilling hole)

Step 2. With the refilling hole on your lighter pointing up, press the can of fuel into the lighter with the fuel can nozzle pointing down. The lighter does not refill in 2 seconds, and DO NOT pump the the fuel can into the lighter. This could cause the tank to rupture, especially in some of the less expensive lighters.

Step 3. After refilling, let it rest so it reaches room temperature. The fuel gets cold when it comes out of the fuel container and will expand as it reaches normal temperatures.

Step 4. Turn the flame adjustment screw ½ turn counter clockwise and try to light the lighter. Turn the screw in ¼ increments until the lighter lights. Make minor adjustments as you need too.


A few tips and tricks:

If the lighter will not ignite, blow sharply into the
flame mechanism. Sometimes there can be small particles,
dust and dirt which will prevent the lighter from lighting. You could use a can of air,
Which can be purchased at almost any store.

For faster refilling. Place your lighter in the freezer for a few minutes. When a lighter is cold it will actually suck the fuel from the can and make the refilling process faster.

Hello there,

Thanks for sharing the link - but unfortunately it seems to be not working? Does anybody here at www.lightersville.com have a mirror or another source?


Cheers,
