SOURCE: refilling a dunhill lighter

All rechargeable lighters have a refilling nozzle (usually at the bottom of lighter).
All the good quality gas refill cans have the nozzle adapters inside sovering cup.
Brake off the nozzle adapters off the cup and try to fit them onto lighters refilling nozzle.
When found the best fit adapter, put it onto gas refill cans nozzle and holding the lighter and can upside down connect all nozzles together and push together.
As these nozzles are made for mass production lighters, tey do not fit perfect and some gas leak will occure.
Anyway- few seconds will be enough to refill any lighter.
In case if your lighter do not refill by explained action, the refill nozzle in your lighter is damaged or faulty.
Hope it does help.

Bulova mantel clock won't keep time. New batteries and will chime. It's about 25 years old at least.


Try CAREFULLY cleaning the mechanism with naphtha lighter fluid. Lighter fluid is high grade naphtha. Be careful not to allow it to run on to the face and electronics. It may damage the face with stain or remove any decals or cemented numerals. It may only take a small amount to clean the shaft bearings. The lighter fluid cleans and lubricates without leaving a film. If you can, while the fluid is on the gears, manually turn the clock forward 12 hours. That will rotate all the gears fully. Us the fluid sparingly!

I have a gold Dunhill lighter which belonged to my partner who passed away a few years ago. Whilst he was still alive I sent the lighter away to be cleaned etc, the shop I sent it through has now closed...


If you go to their web site http://www.dunhill.com/en-cn/catalogue/lighters/ at the bottom of the page you will see find a service center and find a store.

Click on one of these and you should be able to find the information you want.

I have a cigarette lighter from the 2000 Olympic games but it will not spark. Can you help? Kym


Thanks for contacting FixYa.
First check your fuses. If that isn't the problem try this: take a small flat head screw driver and gently bend the two prongs out a little bit. They are used to hold the lighter in place so that it will operate properly. If your lighter works with the key off remove the fuse first. As for replacing the lighter there are two wires connected on the back side you'll need to remove them. On some lighters you will have to unscrew the outer body to remove the lighter others have a nut that has to be removed. Access to the back side of the lighter is always a pain and how you gain access depends on the make, model and year. I hope this helps you.

Got my wife's salt water damaged timex heart rate monitor watch here. Opened it up, and one corner of the screen looks a bit faded and there's white corrosion mess. Can I dip in metho to clean away residue...


Do not use any chemicals. They will damage your watch. The only thing you can use is ZIPPO, RONSON e.t.c. lighter fluid, but do not dip any watch parts in it. You have to use cotton swabs. Dip the swab in lighter fluid and then clean the parts. Do not use a lot of pressure. Change the swabs constantly and blow off excess of lighter fluid all the time. It will take a while, but this is the best solution. When part is clean enough, use dry cotton swabs to clean off the oily residue. Rate me, plz.

WHERE CAN I GET A RESERVOIR FOR MY CARTIER LIGHTER


The reservoir tank can be the bane of existence for a Cartier lighter owner. Unlike most butane lighters which have gas tanks integral to the lighter, Cartier utilizes a user removable tank. Cartier only warrants the tank for two years. I've also seen tanks that say 12 months. New Cartiers come with one spare tank. I've seen spare tanks come up on eBay from time to time, for $30 - $50. If not, picking up a beat-up Cartier on the cheap just to remove and use its tank is an idea. Cartier does not sell spare parts of any kind (other than flints), so if your lighter needs a new tank they will probably insist you get a complete maintenance service, which can cost up to $300.

Submariner 16610 M Model has 40 seconds faster


I don't know if I can help you out, but I can tell you that even a low quality Daytona, or Submariner copy can be adjusted. My 1992 Daytona copy is at about 10 sec a month fast. I read a **** load about the movement, and did the adjustment myself. Any watch shop that tunes watches can do it.

I don't know what year your Submariner is, but today Rolex is using a new main spring (it is now blue). I would think a replacement spring would be the most you might need, but a good tune-up should do the trick. If it is real, I would think about sending it to Rolex for cleaning and a tune-up ($$$).

Pocketwatch runs fast


Such a fast gaining usually is caused by dirty or magnetized hairspring, resulting in uneven coil amplitude (some of the coil rows are sticking together or touching each other). This causes the watch to run unbelievably fast.
To get the watch properly fixed you need to give to the watchmaker.
Alternetively; you can fix it yourself, but it will not last long.
For this you will need:
Case opener,
Dust blower (resin ball with nozzle),
Lighter fluid (ZIPPO),
Dropper (like one in eyedrops package).
Do as follows:
Open watch caseback,
Check for the fastest moving part in watch movement and you will see the hairspring fitted on it (pulsing outwards and inwards very fast).
Fill the VERY CLEAN dropper with lighter fluid.
Put ONE drop of lighter fluid on hairspring (DO NOT TOUCH IT),
Wait for a 10 seconds,
Dry out the lighter fluid with dust blower by vigorously squeezing it and pointing the nozzle on to hairspring from approx. 2-3 inches away.
Lay the watch on the table (dial down) and cover it with a clean, dustless cup. Leave for 15 minutes.
Fit the caseback on and enjoy your watch again.
Do not forget to rate, please.
