High end butane lighters

I have two higher end Colibri lighters that don't ignite.
Both have fuel, have been bled, and show ignition sparks.
both light some when external flame is added. Using Colibri
butane and have try canned air to blow out ignition area.

Any suggestions? Short of sending them back ?

Methinks your internal butane supply line has blockage... there is not enough butane supplied to ignite ~ BUT there is enough to support a flame.

It's factory time if you have a receipt and are still under warranty? Or can you take them back where you purchased them?

Because of possible lawsuits, I feel confident the service department will be very responsive and interested.

SOURCE: Igniters won't stop poppong

Sing, sounds like you got one of your burner valve switches wet and it's grounding out. Try taking a hair dryer, pull of the burner knobs and going lightly over the control valves. The switches are mounted to these valves. It just may need to be dried out. If this doesn't work, one of the switches shorted out. back.

SOURCE: Igniter

It is normal for all 4 burners to spark at same time.  Often burners won't light even when you can see the spark at them because the burner is dirty.  Take a pin and clean out all the holes in rim of burner.  Also look for small cracks in white part of igniter.  If cracked it must be replaced.

There are two panels to remove. One underlaying the grill with (7) 1/4 screws holding it up. This exposes the igniter Use an open end wrench to remove the igniter nut (it will hang on the wire). On the front of the stove top is a vertical black panel. Remove the cover with 1/4" socket. On the right side you'll see a blue relay. The white wire from the grill igniter will be plugged in there. You can tie a string on the end (that plugs into the relay) to ease the installation of the new wire. Or it's easy enough to fish under the upper panel to the control panel. Ensure that you replace the nut on the new igniter.

We had the same problem on a Thermador cooktop with the same RI-302 ignitor. Turns out it was one of the switches that sits on top of the gas valves. These switches cause the ignotor to fire when the valve is turned. In our case, one of the switches had malfunctioned and was "always on" causing the ignitor to continuously fire.

My zico classic torch lighter has spark but wont light.ive already adjusted the fuel imput an still wont light

If it is gas, it will only ignite under two conditions. Enough air and enough fuel. Too much air it won't light and too much fuel it won't light.

My 91 dynasty get hot then loses power replaced fuel filter fuel pump and ignition box did not fix its a LE 3.3 please help I'm at ends wits thanks

Does it die, or is the problem as you state "loss of power"?
I would start by checking the ignition system: When the car is warmed up and showing this problem, check for spark at a plug wire. You should have a blue snapping spark, watch for it while someone cranks the car over. Do you know how to check for spark? Use insulated or heavy glove or insulated pliers to hold plug wire end 1/4 inch from a grounding source on the engine, like a bolt or some metal piece. If you get it close to the metal while car is cranked you won't get shocked, the spark will travel from end of wire to ground. If you don't want to hold the wire, pull the spark plug out, attach it to the plug wire, and lay the plug on the engine with the spark pljug threads touching metal. Now watch for spark traveling from the spark plug end to the little electrode on the end of the plug. Remember, a good blue snapping spark. Orange spark is a weak ignition problem, as is an intermittent spark, only sparking occasionally. If you have a good blue spark, the ignition is probably good.
New pump and new filter, so fuel pressure at the engine should be good, unless the fuel pressure regulator is not working right. You may need to have the fuel pressure checked.
I think you can access the computer's trouble codes on your car through the ignition switch, if you know how to read and translate the flashing engine light into two digit trouble codes. Put key in ignition switch, turn on, off, on, off, and then ON: now codes will start flashing. Code 11 is a flash, 2 second pause, another flash. Code 22 would be a flash, pause, flash, 2 second pause, then 2 quick flashes. There is a 3 or 4 second pause between each code being displayed, if more than one code is stored. Write them down as they flash. If you get mixed up, just turn key off, and start again. Once you get them, post them here, and we, or I will try to help you further. If there are trouble codes it may lead you to the problem.

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. [email protected]

Colibri lighter

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.

Non-functioning Coleman lighter PTR 2160

Hey Neil,

I just bought one myself for camping. Sent $6 S&H, along with lighter to Colibri Service Department (who apparently makes this lighter for Coleman) 1425 Cranston Street, Cranston RI 02920.

You'll want to empty the lighter of Butane before you send it (Hold lighter in verticle upright position. Depress filler valve with a ballpoint pen or small screwdriver until hissing stops.
