A: Yes. I would suggest 'bleeding' the lighter and refilling. To bleed your lighter, locate the fill valve on the bottom of the lighter. Use a small screw driver and depress the pin in the center. You'll hear the gas (and trapped air) purging from the lighter. Once the hissing has stopped, you can refill as normal. Just note, when bleeding your lighter, make sure you point it away from your face and never near any type of flame or lit cigar.
