Usualy there are screw at the bottom.
If there are no screws at all. that means the lighter is assembled in 'click-on' way and you have to use your imaginary engineering skills.
Start with a part which looks attached to lighter the last.

    If you get that far, try to extract ignition part. Then there should be a flame regulator. Unscrew that fully and give it a very good clean with lighter fluid (ZIPPO).

I have a model 35002 triple torch Colibri gear lighter and I need instructions on how to refill it with butane.


There is a small nipple on the bottom of the lighter. That is where you put the canister on to refill.

I have a dunhill lighter pat. #3910750 des. pat. #235456. When I fill it with butane, it leaks out of the top of the lighter. What is causing this?


Sounds like the valve that regulates the gas flow is sticking in the open position even when the lighter is not in use. Try spraying a light machine oil like WD40 on the gas jet aperture and any other moving part whilst your at it. Wipe excess oil from the lighter and leave for several minutes for the oil solvents to evaporate. Light the lighter a few times in rapid succession to enable the oil to penetrate. If the oils done it's job the gas should no longer leak.

Lighter was dropped and the gas reservoir leaks continuously


Gas leaks in a lighter most commonly come from one of two places: the refill port, where you charge the lighter, and the exit port, where the gas exits to be burned.
To confirm where the lighter is leaking, try immersing the refill port in some water. If the lighter is charged and you see bubbles, that's the source of the leak. If you don't see a leak there, try holding the top of the lighter briefly under water to see if it bubbles there. Because electronics may be present at the burn port of the lighter, you want to make this immersion as short as possible. You also want to let the lighter dry completely before attempting to light it again, so you don't accidentally short-circuit something. If you're really worried about shorting it out, you can dab a bit of a soapy solution on the burn port with a Q-Tip instead of immersing the whole lighter tip in water.

Imagine the refill port like a bicycle valve--when you push down to open it, gas can flow in (or out). When you release pressure, that port is supposed to close up again completely. If it is not closing correctly, you can try to look for a piece of something--a shard of plastic or metal, a tiny grain of sand--that is preventing it from closing. However, because this valve is pretty well protected, it's less likely to be the source of the gas leak than the burn port.
The burn port is opened and closed by a mechanical switch. Possibly, a little door flaps open or you push a lever. Each of these triggers opens the burn port, and letting go of the control is supposed to let it close again. If you dropped the lighter on its head, it's possible that the linkage controlling things may have gotten bent or even broken. In that case, the gas port may no longer be closing properly.
The bad news is that once you have diagnosed your gas leak, you don't have a great many repair options. It may be possible to repair a bent or disconnected control at the lighter head, but it is rarely cost-effective to do so unless you simply have to unbend or re-align existing parts. Repair of the refill port, because it likely requires replacement of the gas storage tank, is also usually not cost-effective.

Battery required for colibri lasertron lighter


This lighter would normally use a CR1240E-T lithium 3 volt battery. If you still have an old flat battery, it can be charged if you know what you are doing. OK, so you don't have an old battery, so there are 2 types of battery that you can use to sort the problem. A lot of advice out there suggests using a CR1225, with a little packing to make up for the lack of thickness, this I have found barely works, as the capacity is so low to start with. And now for the real solution........ I use two silver oxide 391 batteries (11.6mm X 2.1mm @ 1.55volt each). With bits of paper to insulate the positive poles from shorting, and more paper to insulate the screw down cover from touching the top battery. The whole thing takes only a couple of mins, and you'll have months worth of bright red light and powerful sparks. Good luck John P. sylvie44@btinternet.com
