Like all other pieces of equipment that you use daily, you may run into problems using your clearomiser. Thankfully, there are many ways to determine what’s wrong with your clearomiser so you can take the appropriate steps to fix the issue and get back to vaping.
Continue reading for a few tips that will help you diagnose the problem you’re having with your clearomiser, and the steps you can take to fix your device so you can enjoy vaping without interruption.
You’re Experiencing a Burnt Flavour
Whenever you vape, you should be able to enjoy the rich flavour of your preferred e-liquids. Provided that you purchased a high quality e-liquid, the flavour should be true and tasty. But if you’re finding that your vapour tastes burnt, there’s definitely a problem. But the problem may not necessarily be your clearomiser; it could be the way that you’re vaping.
It’s a good idea to take shorter drags if you’re finding that your vapour has a burnt taste. This is especially important if you’re using a low ohm clearomiser. Long drags could lead to a burnt flavour, so experiment with the length of your drags to see if this simple solution resolves your problem.
Another way to avoid a burnt flavour is to avoid holding the button down for an extended period. Whenever you place your clearomiser in your pocket or purse, turn it off as well.
When you add e-liquid to your clearomiser, allow it to soak in for at least 5 minutes, especially if you’re using a new coil. Also, making sure the e-liquid doesn’t get too low will prevent it from tasting burnt.
Another step you can take involves cleaning your clearomiser by running water through it and then letting it dry for 12 hours if it’s a bottom dual coil. You can also change your bottom dual coil.
If these steps don’t work, it’s time to purchase a new clearomiser.
You’re Not Getting Enough Vapour
One of the joys of vaping is being able to enjoy the large clouds of vapour produced. If your clearomiser is falling short in this department, first make sure your battery is completely charged up and turned on.
You can also test another clearomiser with your battery to see if it’s a problem with the battery or the clearomiser. If you try another clearomiser and it doesn’t produce enough vape either, it’s likely a problem with your battery.
Another step you can take involves cleaning the clearomiser and battery connection points. And if you’re using a bottom dual coil, make sure the coil is securely screwed into the base.
If these steps don’t help, make sure the e-liquid doesn’t get too low, that you’ve given the e-liquid time to soak, and that your clearomiser is cleaned using water, as instructed above. If these attempts fail, it’s time to replace the coil or the clearomiser.
Your Clearomiser is Leaking
If you find that your clearomiser is leaking, first check for cracks in the device. If there aren’t any cracks, try to remember if you left the clearomiser in an area that was too cold or too hot (it should be left in a cool environment).
If that doesn’t work, make sure its rubber seals haven’t been broken and that they haven’t shifted if you’re using a bottom dual coil clearomiser.
Finally, if none of the steps above resolve the issue, it’s a good idea to check that the connections haven’t cross-threaded. And if that still doesn’t solve the issue, make sure the bottom dual coil is screwed securely into the base.
If none of the above steps work, make sure the e-liquid soaks and doesn’t get too low. Try cleaning the clearomiser with water or change the bottom dual coil. And when all else fails, replace the clearomiser.
You’re Noticing Gurgling
In the event your clearomiser is making a gurgling sound, make sure the clearomiser isn’t flooded with your e-liquid by checking that the centre tube is clear of any liquid. If that doesn’t work, flick the clearomiser.
If the above steps don’t work and you’re using a bottom dual coil clearomiser, try removing the base and blowing through the mouthpiece. If that doesn’t solve the problem, try changing the coil. And if that still doesn’t make the gurgling stop, it’s time for a new clearomiser.
You’re Getting E-Liquid in Your Mouth
You want the vapour from the e-liquid, not the liquid itself, to get in your mouth. If the liquid is making its way into your mouth, there’s a problem.
First, make sure that you’re filling up your clearomiser from the correct end. A standard clearomiser should be filled from the top, while a bottom dual coil clearomiser should be filled from the bottom.
If that doesn’t work, make sure you haven’t flooded the clearomiser. And if that doesn’t work, flick the device, remove the base and blow through the mouthpiece of your bottom dual coil, change the coil of your bottom dual coil, or replace the clearomiser if none of these steps work.
