KEEP OUT OF REACH
1. FILLING & RE-FILLING LIGHTER WITH
BUTANE GAS FUEL
- Refill windproof lighter in
well-ventilated area only.
- Never fill
Windmill Lighter near any
heat source, sparks, or flame.
- NEVER ATTEMPT TO IGNITE
LIGHTER DURING REFILLING PROCESS.
- Read warning labels on butane
- Hold windproof lighter away from face
and clothing when refilling.
- Keep Windmill Windproof Lighter lid closed.
- Wipe windproof lighter and hands dry
Set flame adjustment near (-)
Hold the Windmill Lighter in one hand in upside
Insert butane gas container filler tip
(nozzle) directly on to the fuel inlet valve of the Windmill Lighter. Press down
firmly 4-5 seconds. Repeat until a small air bubble is visible
in fuel gauge, which indicates fuel level is full. Wait 1-2
minutes before igniting lighter. This will permit any excess
butane to evaporate. Ignite and adjust flame to desired
2. IGNITING THE
for Ignition Tips & High-Altitude Lighting
Windproof lighter burns at intensely hot
temperatures (over 2,000°F). Flame is nearly invisible in
bright light. When Windmill Lighter is ignited, a white glow is
visible through the white ceramic flame window to indicate
when the lighter is burning.
Fuel is not supplied to
the burner when only the cap is opened. For safety reasons,
ignition occurs only when ignition lever is
- NEVER TOUCH BURNER COIL WITH
FINGERS OR ANY OBJECT. Take care not to touch top of
windproof lighter. The best position for ignition of another
object is typically ½" - ¾" above burner
- To avoid heat buildup, do not
use for any situation that would require continuous flame
for more than 10 seconds.
Push the stainless steel wire cap
lock to down position (Delta model only). Open Windmill Lighter cap by
pressing in the cap release button. Set flame adjuster
near (-) lowest setting. Adjust desired flame
height. The best position for ignition is when flame of the Windmill Lighter is set ½"
- ¾" above burner coil. Push down on the ignition lever firmly
with thumb until you hear a click sound. When gas and
air mix in the combustion chamber, ignition will
3. EXTINGUISHING THE
FLAME OF YOUR WINDMILL LIGHTER
Lifting your thumb from the ignition
lever will stop the fuel flow and extinguish the flame. The
flame should stop immediately upon releasing the ignition
lever. If the Windmill Lighter flame continues to burn for a few seconds
after releasing the ignition lever, the flame level is too
high and should be adjusted towards the (-) mark. Close
windproof lighter by pressing the cap shut until cap clicks into locked
position. Push stainless steel wire cap lock UP until
cap lock clicks into closed position (Delta model
4. FLAME LEVEL
ADJUSTMENT OF YOUR WINDPROOF LIGHTER
As butane gas is used in your Windmill Lighter, the pressure in
the fuel tank is reduced. The flame level may be adjusted to
the desired flame height. The Windmill Lighter burner produces a nearly
invisible, highly efficient flame, which extends above the top
surface of the windproof lighter. The flame adjuster is a black
plastic ring surrounding the fuel inlet on the bottom of the
lighter. To adjust the windproof flame level, move the flame
adjuster with your finger to the desired flame height.
To increase the flame, move the flame adjuster Counter
Clockwise towards the (+) mark. To reduce the flame,
move the flame adjuster Clockwise towards the (-) mark.
The best position for ignition of your Windmill Lighter occurs ½" to ¾" above the
See the section on higher elevations for
special instructions for high altitude flame adjustment and
recommended fuel for your Windmill Lighter under these conditions.
