SOURCE: I lost the bottom cap

Hi there! The only place that will sell Brunton Helios parts is Brunton itself. You can get in touch with them through numbers on this page -> They may not support the product any more, as it is legacy. I would try contacting them first, and then check out second hand stores and pawn shops for a new one. Good luck! Alex

Several new torch lighter, filled with butane, has spark, wont light.

adjust the fuel output , it is easiest to do by holding the button down while lighting the flame with a seperate lighter and then setting the flame on the lighter that does not ignite proper, also take into account that the temperature of the lighter by being held in your hand for a while or by being in your pocket can have a great effect on the pressure of the buttane being expelled.

Have 2 heaters 1st heater will not light, has gas

sometimes you need to hold down the button for 5 to 10 seconds while the heater heats up,, as soon as it gets to temperature then it should stay on with no problem.
as far as the one that is not lighting -- all I can thing of is that the igniter is not close enough to the fuel exit area ( ? ),, with the power off - ( un-plugged ) look inside as you press the igniter and see if you can see the spark arch. -- also, if this is a new heater there is a chance that there might be something wrong with the regulator and it is either getting to much or not enough gas.

Pilot wont light

The thermocouple provides the power to keep the pilot coil energized after being lit and sometimes also provides the power to operate the main gas valve. the gas you hear when you hold down the button is from you manually providing that gas. It does sound as if the spark ignitor it no good. Some use batteries and others don't. If the spark mechanism is used soley for lighting the pilot, then yes, you can light it with a match or butane lighter. Just have the flame there before you push down the button. Keep holding down the button for 30 seconds or so to warm the thermocouple after it is lit. Good-luck.

Helios h4000

While this was posted 2 years ago, I found a company that does repairs on the Helios, in fact I have used them twice so far for repairs on my unit. The first time for the power supply problem and the second time for a jammed tray door in March of this year; it would not open.
