Each day you probably wake up, eat breakfast, and head to your morning vape session. Usually everything goes smoothly, and your session is relaxing as always. But every once in a while, you’ll notice something is a little off. Maybe there isn’t as much vapor as usual, or maybe there is a little bit of burnt taste at the tail end of the vapor. Possibly you feel like you’re just not able to pull as hard as usual, or maybe your vape just won’t even turn on. Do not fear - everyone has these problems, and each of these can be fixed regardless of your mechanical and tinkering skills.
Here we’ll discuss exactly what do to fix four of the most common problems you may have with your clearomizer.
Problem #1: Burnt Taste
Getting a burnt taste from your device is probably one of the most common problems that most vapers face. Fortunately, it can be easily explained and troubleshooting solutions is simple. There are only two reasons that a clearomizer may produce burnt taste: dry wicking or clogging. Check how much e-liquid you've left in your vape - if it’s low, you may need to flip it around in order to re-saturate the wick. If you’re nearly out of e-juice, it’s time to refill the clearomizer, as trying to pull from a dry coil will give you that burnt taste. If you've been using your clearomizer for more than a week without cleaning it, then it’s time to do so. E-liquid sugars will build up on the heating coil, and constantly reheating these will produce burnt taste. Give the coil a good scrub or replace it with a new one and you should be good to go.
Problem #2: Limited Airflow
Restricted airflow can definitely hinder your vaping experience and can strain the vape’s parts as well, so fixing it quickly is imperative. What’s probably restricting airflow is some sort of obstruction either in the base of the clearomizer or in the coil. You can easily check the coil by shining a flashlight down the tube. If there's any obstruction, you'll notice it. The only parts that are supposed to be there are the coil and the cotton wick running through. Chances are that some extra cotton from the wick fell off, obstructing the pin that connects the coil to the rest of the vape. If there’s nothing there, check the base. Usually you can see inside the base, and will easily notice if something is there. Take out the obstructing object, switch in a new coil if you’re feeling the vibe, and you’re good to go.
Problem #3: Not Enough Vapor Production
Before we troubleshoot, let’s clear up one thing. We’re not talking about how your device isn’t producing the huge clouds you see in videos - we’re talking about it's not producing as much vapor as it has in the past. Plenty of people expect their devices to produce gigantic clouds right out of the box, but don’t realize how much tweaking the pros have put into making this happen. Regardless of that, if your device isn’t producing a normal amount of vapor there's certainly a problem. The first thing you should check is the battery. Chances are that the battery is low and needs a charge. However, if that’s not true, then move to the clearomizer. Two things may be afoot here. The first could simply be low e-liquid. Easily fix this by refilling and vaping away. The other problem could be that your clearomizer has aged to completion. The atomizer inside deteriorates over time, and it could be time to replace it with a new one.
Final Problem: No Power
Sometimes your device just won’t turn on. This could be a battery issue, so make sure the battery is on and charged properly. However, it could be a clearomizer issue. Maybe your clearomizer isn't compatible with the battery, or more likely the connection between the clearomizer and the battery is faulty. Check that they’re properly connected, or try the clearomizer with other batteries to ensure that it works.
Thankfully, each of these problems can be easily fixed with a little bit of careful checking. Make sure everything is working smoothly so you can make your vape sessions as amazing as possible.
