Most vape tanks work perfectly 99% of the time. It’s that other 1% that can become a real problem. Luckily, there are some easy fixes that you can try at home before you resort to sending your tank in to be repaired or buy a new one. The two most common reasons that the tank is not working are that it’s leaking or that it isn’t firing.
If the tank is leaking, then a broken vacuum is the cause. The first step is to take the tank apart and look for cracks or breaks in all the parts. Pay special attention to the o-rings inspecting them carefully for signs of wear. If you do not find any broken or cracked parts, then proceed to check the coil head. It should be fully threaded into place. You should be able to remove it with just your hands. Coil heads have a limited lifespan, so you may have to invest in a new one. While you’ve the coil head removed, check the o-rings that it bumps up against for signs of wear or cracking. If you find any signs of damage, then replace these o-rings and the tank should stop leaking.
Tank Is Not Firing
The second reason that the tank may be leaking is that it isn’t firing. This is normally caused by the coil not functioning properly. If possible, remove the coil and try it on a different device. If you’ve just installed a new coil, then make sure that the coil is within the operating capacity of the tank. If you still haven’t been successful in getting the tank to fire, then locate the small positive center pin in the bottom threaded portion of the connector. This pin should sit slightly extended or flush with the threaded portion of the device. If it has become pushed in, then you’ll need to pull it back out a little. Sometimes, these pins are threaded, so you may need a small screwdriver. If the device is still not firing, then very carefully remove the pin from its hole. There should be an insulator ring located on that pin. Inspect the insulator pin for signs of wear and replace it if necessary.
The two most common reasons for a tank leaking can usually be fixed by vapers at home. This is great news because it means that you can still use your e-cigarette, portable vaporizer or MOD! If you need to buy new parts, then remember that you need to buy parts that match your specific tank model as not all parts are universal.
Now, that you have fixed your tank, you can breathe a big sigh of relief instead of crying from the stress.
