If it doesn't light, the LED flashes and the display shows an error code 9 which suggests a problem with the gas. The gas has been checked and the pressure is fine (I've also tried in on a different gas bottle).

I had an outfit that the wires were too short and if there is enough length cut the wire and get a longer piece of wire. and solder it together. taping the open wire.
I had one I took the connector that goes on the battery and fastened on a longer wire and soldered them together. Only do this if you understand what you are doing.
