Windmill Storm Lighter1. 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 refill canister.
  • Hold windproof lighter away from face and clothing when refilling.
  • Keep Windmill Windproof Lighter lid closed.
  • Wipe windproof lighter and hands dry before igniting.

Set flame adjustment near (-) lowest setting.

Hold the Windmill Lighter in one hand in upside down position.

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 height.

2. IGNITING THE WINDMILL LIGHTER

Click Here for Ignition Tips & High-Altitude Lighting Instructions

Windproof lighter burns at intensely hot temperatures (over 2,000F). 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 depressed.

  • 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 " - " above burner coil.
     
  • 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 " - " 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 occur.

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 only).

4. FLAME LEVEL ADJUSTMENT OF YOUR WINDPROOF LIGHTER

Wind Proof LighterAs 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 " to " above the catalyzer coil.

See the section on higher elevations for special instructions for high altitude flame adjustment and recommended fuel for your Windmill Lighter under these conditions.
