  1. 1

    Determine that the candle lighter is low or out of fuel. Observe the fuel level in the fuel indicator window before the refill process is started.

    Turn the candle lighter upside down so the filling valve on the base of the lighter is easily accessible. Identify the valve as the small brass tube in the base of the lighter.

  3. 3

    Hold a butane fuel refill bottle and turn so the fuel nozzle points down.

  4. 4

    Insert the fuel nozzle on the butane refill bottle into the filling valve of the lighter.

  5. 5

    Push down on the refill bottle to transfer butane fuel into the candle lighter. Hold the nozzle of the bottle against the lighter valve for 10 seconds.

  6. 6

    Remove the butane fuel refill bottle from the filling valve and allow the butane fuel to warm for at least 30 seconds before the lighter is used.

Tips and warnings

  • Refill the candle lighter in a well ventilated area and avoid breathing the butane fuel vapour to prevent potential injury.
