Can you fix a butane torch

Asked by Mel October 18, 2020

Yes, though it depends what is wrong with it, if it still sparks it may just need to be brought back into adjustment. Verify the tank is full first. The plastic adjuster on the bottom pulls off exposing the brass shaft. If it won’t light turn it fully clockwise to close. Then open it about 1/2 turn (counter clockwise) and try to light, if not open a little more till it lights with a low flame. When you get a low flame then the plastic adjuster can be put back on between the stops and can use that to adjust the flame higher. If you are not getting any spark then the piezo electric unit is probably no good and would need to buy a new lighter.

if lighter flame adjustment is out of range lighter will not light or has small flame! pull knob...

No thanks. I found a viable alternative and already have that

what's the proper way to fill the pocket torch?

Asked by Eric December 2, 2019

Get the Bernzomatic brand butane refill cannister.... hold the MT-16 upside down and press the butane nozzle directly against the tip of the MT-16. Press down and you should not hear any air escape, or very little.... don't press down extremely hard, just feather it until you know it's starting to fill the reservoir. Check the level, and if you have trouble getting it to fill, press the lighter tip down a couple seconds with a small nail to release pressure, then fill again, only this time pump it a few times where you release, then push in and hold 2-3 seconds and repeat....refilling is more difficult the colder the ambient temprerature - try to do this indoors or close to 70 degrees F.

The black slider locks the flame on if you engage it while lit. The plus and minus symbols indicate which way to turn the adjustment to increase or decrease the flame. Flip the little handle out then turn it left to increase and right to decrease, flip the handle back flat. I didn't read that; I just figured it out.

does it come pre-filled or do I have to fill it when I get it

Empty when new. Get Zippo, the cleanest and best butane on the market.

Can you get different tips for it?

This small Mag-Torch is awesome. I use it for small craft projects, aluminum brazing, heat shrink tubing and soldering ectronics and even repaired a leaking radiator on my tractor. I'm not a smoker but I am a self proclaimed "Mr fix-it". I purchased my first mag torch mini, then realized how useful it is. On my next trip to home depot I picked up two additional units. One in the shed/barn, one in home utility room and other in pickup glove compartment.

Sure, yours works now, and it's got an impressive little flame for precision work... but will find its way to the trash within a month. Mine kept giving me issues where it wouldn't light, or had to be all the way full in order to be lit. Then the cap wouldn't close. Then it failed completely and would spark, but not release the butane. I want to buy another one, but based on others reviews, I'm certain it will reach the same end. Pass this one up and look elsewhere.

In the world of miniature torch lighters, this is one of the best ones available that I've ever used - it actually doesn't break down after a week... it also does allow you to burn it for extended periods without breaking down either. I've run it for 15 minutes, let it cool and it starts right up again without a problem. You will notice that it doens't light back up if it's extremely hot - you need to let it cool first. Also, the unit is very well made - hard think plastic and metal - paint doesn't chip very easily and never had a part break due to being dropped, including right on concrete multiple times.... they recently redesigned the unit making the loop for the keyring much thicker so it is more secure. They also removed the ability to lock it in the on position - I do and don't like this - the feature was nice to have but a pain sometimes, but now it's gone I wish it was there from time to time... IDK - I guess I like the new design more no matter what. I included a photo of the back of the packaging showing the previous model with the locking feature for anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about....

This lighter never lights on the first try and usually takes 4 or 5 tries before it finally lights. Also it will only work with the fuel adjustment near full open. It will not light nor will it stay lit if turned down, must be at or near full blast for it to work. The lever that locks it on is also misaligned and about to break off. I have had torches that costed $3 that were of far better quality than this one. I bought this today, will be returning tomorrow. Worthless piece of junk.

Can be very temperamental. Has adjust on bottom but had to separate know for adjustment from lighter and make it where I could adjust for more fuel than previously possible. Flame lock would have been a welcomed addition as well

This thing is trash. I filled it with bernzomatic brand fuel and it has never worked right. Its been several days of trying and I've never had a flame last more than a few seconds. Save yourself the money

I've been looking for one of these for quite some time. The flame is exactly like a torch. It's good for using in several areas -- even for those who smoke (which I do not).
