Clearomizer Problems & Solutions
If you are experiencing a burnt taste:
1. Ensure there is plenty of e-liquid in your clearomizer.
2. Don’t inhale for too long, especially if you’re using a low resistance coils. 5 to 7 seconds is a good length of time to vape, any longer than this and you could risk burning the coil.
3. Don’t let your e-liquid run too low. Not having enough e-liquid in your clearomizer can lead to burning out your coil and the liquid. If you’re using a bottom dual coil clearomizer, try not to let the e-liquid go below the two holes in the coil.
4. After filling your clearomizer with e-liquid, make sure you let it rest for a few minutes. This will ensure the e-liquid soaks in to the wicks.
5. If all else fails, replace the coil. Sometimes coils simply need to be replaced. They can last anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks depending on use.
If you are not getting any vapour:
1. Make sure your battery is fully charged and turned on.
2. If you have a spare clearomizer that you know works, try using it on the battery. If it still doesn’t work, the battery could be on its way out, it’s time for a new battery.
3. Clean the contact points. Dirt in the connection points between the battery and clearomizer can cause connection issues. Gently clean the connection with a cotton bud and rubbing alcohol.
4. Make sure the coil is properly screwed into the base of the clearomizer. If the coil isn’t screwed in properly, it will not make a connection between the battery and the clearomizer won’t work.
If your clearomizer is leaking:
1. Check for cracks in the clearomizer to see if there is any leakage. Cracks can be caused by dropping or knocking. To prevent this, consider buying a case which will protect your device from bumps and knocks. If you do spot a crack, it’s time for a new clearomizer.
2. Keep your clearomizer at room temperature. Leaving your clearomizer in extreme temperatures (such as in a hot car), can cause the clearomizer to crack and the e liquid to thin, resulting in it seeping through the tiniest cracks/holes.
3. Ensure the o-rings on the clearomizer and coil have not broken. The o-rings are the rubber seals that allow the connections to stay tight and prevent juice from leaking.
4. Make sure that no connections have cross threaded. Connections between the clearomizer, the coil and battery must be secured tightly without any cross threads.
If your clearomizer is gurgling:
1. Make sure that you have not flooded the clearomizer. Filling your clearomizer up with too much e-liquid can result in gurgling. Tip some out and allow it to settle.
2. Blow through the mouthpiece onto a tissue to remove any excess liquid.
3. If the gurgling won’t stop, it’s time to change the coil.
