fill it up with juice wind the wick up a tadge and light it,once lit wind the wick down a tadge,some of the bigger ones have a bath of water on top has yours got one ?.if the wick has gone you can get them of e-bay.you just need to measure the width to get the right one.

It looks like it would of had something across the top at some time but no more. Do you just light the wick with a match?

No Need for that  :lol:  :lol:

I have seen some with auto spark thing son them.  I meant Do you light the wick or the area just below it.
