    I have the same problem. I have an old Kreisler lighter that I got as a gift in 1968. I decided to start using it and was wondering how to get it fixed.

    I have the exact same problem as well! It must be a factory fault. Mine had never had oil in it and it was also from the 60's. Did anyone find a solution?

Wick problems

Turn the bowl upside down and use a match or much better, a cigarette lighter to melt the wax directly below (normally above) the black wick, moving the flame it back and forward. Watch out for hot wax dripping onto your skin!
Then turn the bown over and use a butter knife to scrape the wax above the wick away and remove the wax above and on either side of the wick. You may have to do this operation a few times, but eventually you should be able to gently get the knife under the buried wick and (gently!) prise it back into an upright position.
Don't do this roughly, or you could snap the wick off at its base, it needs to be pretty much out of the wax and softened by the flame before you try to bend it back up.

Then light the cantle and let it burn for ten minutes, until the wax all around it is clear liquid - then blow it out, and after ensuring that the wick tip is no longer glowing, quickly crush a few absorbent paper towels into the bowl and upturn it again. The aim is to allow the towel to absorb excess molten wax, which should preven the wick from being buried under wax again when the candle cools.

Replaced the flint, filled with ronsonol lighter fluid. I do get a sparkfrom the flint to the wick. But it does not light. Tried a match to light wick, it lights and burns. Back to the flink spark, no...

How high is the wick? It can be adjusted by pulling from either direction. Try soaking the cotton til you can see the fluid fill the compartment, or til it drips out the wick. Be sure the fluid has evaporated and the lighter is dry, before you try to re-light it.

I have a small propane reddy heater with an electric ignitor if power is out can i manually light it

Yes, you can. Use either a butane grill lighter or a long stick match. Make sure the control knob is in the "light" position and the wick is in the right position. Light the long stick match or butane grill lighter, press the control knob in and while holding it in, touch the flame of the match or butane grill lighter to the wick and the wick should ignite. Once it ignites, quickly remove the match without knocking the tip off into the heater.

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.

Cd player has started not reading disc or sounds scratchy. is there a way to clean or fix/

Believe it or not you can use cigarette lighter fluid on the tip of a cotton bud to clean the focus lens, the lens is not the lazer itself, thats in the bottom of the mechanism, the lens you can see is just a focus lens that becomes dirty, it kind of works like a telescope, the lazer is like where the eyepiece is on a telescope and the lens on the front of the telescope is the lens on the mechanism and can easily be cleaned with the lighter fluid, and since lighter fluid evoporates very quickly theres no worries, used it for years without a problem, be gentle though when lightly rubbing from left to right over the lens, getting to the lens you will need to take off the top cd clamp, usualy a screw either side with a spring, easily removed to be able to see the lens.

Sticky keys

You can try cleaning the keyboard. most keys can be removed easily by just pulling them out.
This will require about 2 hours time once you have collected the proper cleaning materials.
  • Cleaning materials:
  • Cotton swabs
  • Cosmetic foam rubber cleaning pads ( use only with naptha (lighter fluid), NOT alcohol)
  • Paper towels
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Water
  • Lighter fluid (naptha)
  • Fine tipped tweezers
  • Scissors
  • Kitchen strainer
  • Household cleaner, Windex or equivalent
  • Super Lube Dry Film spray (critical - DO NOT SUBSTUTUTE !) K-Mart automotive.
  • This is a PTFE (teflon) based lubricant which dries perfectly DRY and is ideally suited for this application.
Proceed as follows: DISASSEMBLE
IMPORTANT: Make a keyboard map so you know where each key goes.
Carefully pry each key loose with a small screwdriver and place in a container. They pop off. DO NOT use excessive force. There may be a small rubber piece for each key. Remove all of these and place in a separate container. CAREFUL, these are small and like to jump away.
CLEAN KEYBOARD ( do this well...... you will be wonderfully rewarded )
Clean the keyboard with cotton swabs SLIGHTLY DAMPENED with water. Replace these often and BE SURE they are only slightly damp. If they are too wet the excess water will contaminate the keyboard through capillary action. This will clean all water soluble contaminants like Coca-Cola, coffee, and sugar residue. For the very small places, cut the foam rubber into small pieces and use the tweezers, again SLIGHTLY DAMPENED, for cleaning. You must clean each and every key space, inside and out, this is critical since this is where the key touches and moves.
Repeat this procedure again using rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs but NOT the foam rubber as it disintegrates when used with alcohol.
Finally repeat this procedure using naptha (lighter fluid) and foam rubber. You can clean even the smallest key guides with small pieces of foam rubber and tweezers. This action will remove any petroleum based contaminants as well as the grease that is sometimes used on the wider keys which may have guide wires, for example, the SCACE BAR.
Some keys may have wires attached and some grease on them, clean these first with cotton swabs and naptha (lighter fluid). Remove all traces of the grease.
Place all keys in a kitchen strainer. Spray with household cleaner and let stand for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with hot water and place keys on paper towels to dry. Let dry completely.
Place all rubber components in a kitchen strainer. Spray with household cleaner and let stand for 5 minutes. Use stopper in the sink so that you don�t lose these if they jump out of the strainer. Rinse these thoroughly with hot water and place on paper towels. Fold the towels over and press to squeeze most of the water out of the pieces. Let dry completely.
Place all keys bottom-up on a paper bag. Lightly coat the keys, at a 45 degree angle with Super Lube Dry Film lubricant. Do this from all 4 sides to assure penetration and coverage into the small and critical guide spaces inside each key. Let dry ( this happens nearly instantly). DO NOT overdue this step as the carrier solvent may affect the plastic.
Mask off the laptop with paper and scotch tape. Apply lubricant (as above in LUBRICATE KEYS) to the keyboard and let dry.
All right, you now have perfectly cleaned and lubricated keys, keyboard, and rubber components.
Place all rubber components into the keyboard.
Install keys with wires. Make sure wire is secured in the key, usually snapped into place. Place ends of wire in the guide slots adjacent to the key location as you align the key. Firmly press down to snap the key into place.
Install the rest of the keys by aligning and firmly pressing down.

Canon AE1 shutter problem, shutter will not release

Well, here is where it gets a little tricky. You'll need an x-acto knife, some lighter fluid and some q-tip swabs. You need to carefully cut the plastic shield on 3 edges to make kind of a door to the magnet.

You are doing this to expose the magnet face so it can be cleaned with the lighter fluid using the cotton swabs. Careful how you make the cuts.
