Cigarette Vintage Lighter Repair?

Answer

If you find your vintage lighter is not working properly, the first step to repairing it is to check the fuel level. You can do this by opening the top of the lighter, and grasping the  part that houses the wick (called the chimney) with one hand, while holding the outside part of the lighter in the other hand. If you pull up on the chimney you should be able to easily remove the lighter from its housing. Turn the lighter upside down, and pour lighter fluid into the bottom loading end.  When lighter is full, place the lighter back in the housing before attempting to light.  If the lighter still does not work the wick or the flint wheel may need to be replaced.
