Dhoop dani, or incense burners, are an ideal way to fill your space with fragrant air. These electric models require no burning of charcoal and produce less smoke than other incense burners do.
With some basic tools and some experience, repairing an electric incense burner should be relatively straightforward. However, be careful as attempting to repair your unit without proper knowledge and tools could cause irreparable harm.
To begin, ensure the burner is plugged in and has the appropriate power supply. To confirm this, turn it on and look for a red light that indicates the heating coil is active.
If the heat doesn’t come on, try switching off the burner and reconnecting it to its electrical source. When connected again, it should automatically turn on at your desired temperature setting.
Beginners are advised to start with the lowest heat setting initially in order to learn how to regulate your incense burner’s heat properly. With practice and trial and error, you will find the ideal setting for each type of incense and can reduce it as needed.
Once the heat setting is correct, place your incense on the burner tray and press down on it evenly to distribute it evenly. Do this slowly so that the burner heats up to the desired temperature gradually.
Once the burner reaches your desired temperature, you can take your incense out of its tray and replace it with another piece. Doing this is a wise practice as it prevents overheating the incense which could cause it to burn prematurely or leave residue on the tray.
Once your incense has been taken out, you can clean the plate with a damp cloth or soapy water. Make sure to thoroughly wipe down the plate in order to get rid of any ash that has accumulated on it.
If the burner is dirty or has a heavy buildup of grime, you can immerse it in warm water for several minutes and then scrub with either a soft bristle brush or cotton cleaning cloth. If the gunk is oily, use nail polish remover to gently wipe away excess residue.
Once the plate has dried, you can wipe away any leftover residue with a dry cotton cleaning cloth or tweezers.
Some types of incense, such as frankincense and bakhoor, leave behind a melted residue which may be difficult to clean from the tray. To prevent this from occurring, we suggest placing a layer of foil on top before burning these types of incenses.
A layer of foil on the plate helps prevent burning residue from spreading to other parts of your incense burner and causing damage. Furthermore, it makes the material melt evenly and efficiently.
