    So my torch lighter no longer sparks when I try to light it. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

    So your lighter hisses, but doesn't spark? From what I know, that's an ignition system malfunction. If you have a warranty on it, best to get it replaced.

    Try to blow out the top of your tourch with some compressed air sometimes you will get something stuck in there. But most likely its shot.

    Oh yaaa! jships post just made me think of something. Try turning your lighter upside down and pulling the ignition. There could be a particle blocking the spark to ignite the fuel.

    Okay, first thing I would do is check to make sure there is no blockage between the igniter and the side of the lighter, if thee is something in there the piezo electric won't get a good path for spark, and won't spark, if there is nothing in there I would take a jewellers screwdriver or a ball point pen and push down on the part sticking out that should spark (where the rod sticks out of) sometimes in usage that will slide out and not get good contact. You can usually fix these things by tinkering with it, its a pretty simple system, good luck

    Well, if it's not fixable, you have a warranty on it, right?

    Is it the one I traded you? If it is, tap each corner on a flat surface... it gets out of alignment sometimes... I got one after I traded you mine, cuz the one my fiance got me for xmas was crap unfortunately... the Ccom guy (andrew I think) told me to do that and it worked...

    no, it wasn't the one you traded me. That one has been working flawlessly. The one that has an issue is a RP single torch.

    RP single torch? It should have a lifetime warranty. Mine's an RP triple torch and it comes with one.
