How To Fix A Flameless Candle?

The flameless candle is one of the most popular holiday decorations. It looks great on your tree and gives off a nice glow. However, if the flameless candle doesn’t work properly, you’ll need to replace it with another model or try another solution.

Common Problems of Flameless Candle

There is no visible light

If your flameless candle is not working, there are a few things to check. First, make sure that the battery is inserted correctly and that you’re using the correct type of battery. It should be small enough to fit into the compartment at the base of your candle and have an electrical connection.

The other thing to check is whether or not your candle has been dropped or accidentally knocked over (which could have damaged it). If it has been dropped or knocked over then this may cause problems with its operation; if this is so then try changing out batteries until one works again!

There is visible light, but not enough brightness

The first thing you should do is replace the light bulb with a new one. If you are using an old fluorescent bulb, then it could be that the socket is loose and needs to be tightened.

However, if this does not solve your problem, then you need to take a look at the cord of your candle and see if there are any breaks in it or fraying on its end where it connects with your flameless candle’s body.

If none of these solutions work for whatever reason (and they usually don’t), then try adding more candles around them so they aren’t competing against each other as much as possible; this should help increase their brightness levels while still keeping them burning evenly throughout their lifespan.”

The candle is flickering

The flickering of your flameless candle is a common problem, but it’s also an easy fix. There are several reasons why your candle may be flickering:

  • The battery is not charged and needs to be charged again.
  • The battery is dead or has run out of power, so you need to replace it with a new one (you can find many different sizes at most stores).
  • If you’re using a remote control that doesn’t work properly with your candle, try replacing the batteries in both devices before trying again!

The candle does not respond to the remote control or timer

Some remote controls may not work with a flameless candle. If this happens, try moving the remote closer to or farther away from the candle. If that doesn’t work, check to see if you’re using an old-fashioned model of a remote—not one that has been updated with Wi-Fi capabilities and multiple button presses.

Some devices have timers built into them and can be used as timers for candles or other devices that don’t have their own timer features built into them (like an alarm clock). Make sure there’s nothing blocking your view of these timers; otherwise they won’t be able to tell when it’s time for their respective devices/candles/etcetera!

You can solve these problems easily by yourself

  • Check the batteries.
  • Check the remote control.
  • Check the candle itself, and make sure they’re not too old or worn out to work properly (if you can’t tell if they are by looking at them). If there’s something wrong with your flameless candle, it may be worth taking it back to where you bought it and getting a replacement—this way, if one day all of your candles stop working at once, you’ll know which one is causing problems!
  • Make sure that everything works correctly: check that there are no loose wires or parts lying around on any surface near where you’re going to put down this particular item; also make sure all components’ connections are secure so nothing falls off during use (or before shipping).

How To Fix Flameless Candles Problems

1. Replace batteries

If you’re lucky enough to have a flameless candle that’s still working but just needs an occasional recharge, then this is the section for you. In order to fix your candle and get it back on track, it’s important to check both the remote control battery and the candle itself.

If you’ve checked these things already, skip down to Step 2.

2. Replace the bulb

The first thing to do is to replace the bulb. To do this, remove all parts from your remote control and remove three screws from its back panel (1). Pry off this panel using pliers or a screwdriver; then remove both bulbs (2) by unscrewing them from their sockets on top of the light fixture assembly. Install new ones in place of old ones using provided screws and washers.

To install batteries into a remote control, just follow the same steps as above but instead use a flat head screwdriver to open the battery compartment cover located beneath the handle area where you can see an arrow pointing towards it indicating the direction where batteries go when replacing them with fresh ones!

3. Replace the remote control

To replace the remote control, follow these steps:

  • Check the batteries. Make sure that they are fresh and fully charged by removing them from their packaging and placing them in a safe location until you’re ready to use them again. Replace any dead or weak ones with new ones just as you would find in any battery-powered device, such as your flashlight or television remote control.
  • Check bulb condition and function. If there is no visible damage on your candle’s base plate, then this means that its flame hasn’t been extinguished through lack of oxygen (the candle has been turned off).

 In this case, try turning it back on again by pressing down on its lid until you hear a click sound; then turn off all other lights in order to see if there’s any sign of activity from within its glass container (such as flickering flames).

If so, check whether anything has broken off within its casing—something small like pieces of fallen wax may have caused this problem; otherwise, contact customer service about having another one sent out immediately!


In this article, we’ve covered some common problems with flameless candles. Hopefully, you now know how to solve them. If not, don’t worry—you can always take your candle back to the store and get a new one!
