HOW TO REPAIR YOUR ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE TANK?
Many vapers regularly ask themselves the question of how to repair their clearomizer. Because the warranty has passed, or for the sake of ecology and waste reduction, many of us prefer to repair rather than have to throw away our equipment. It also happens that certain products that you cherish are too old, or out of stock and therefore unavailable. Know that if your clearomiser is broken or no longer works, the problem can be solved in some cases. We listed the solutions available to you so that you can repair your clearomizer yourself. Repairing your clearomiser is not always a task intended for handymen or vaping experts, sometimes it just takes a little to get your equipment operational again!
MY CLEAROMISER IS LEAKING, HOW CAN I FIX THIS?
In most cases, a leaking tank is a sign of misuse. You will therefore have to identify the origin of this leak.
If the leak comes from the airflows: The liquid you have chosen may contain too much propylene glycol, which thins the mixture and helps it flow more easily. The solution? You must select an e-liquid with a higher percentage of vegetable glycerin.
If the leak comes from the base: in some cases, when we unscrew the base of our clearomiser to fill it or to change the resistance, it happens that we re-position the seal incorrectly or that we lose it. Don’t panic, the manufacturers have thought of everything and generally provide spare seals! Look carefully at the bottom of the box initially containing your little jewel, you should find small black or white rubber rounds. Simply replace them between the base and the pyrex and/or between the pyrex and the top cap. Done!
If the leak comes from a pyrex tube broken: We have all tried the temporary technique of rolling adhesive around the cracked pyrex tube to overcome a leak. This emergency solution does not work… If your tank is broken or cracked you must change it! As with seals, a spare tank is usually supplied with your equipment. It will then suffice to unscrew the base and the top cap to replace the central part of your clearo. If you no longer have a spare tube, you will find everything you need in the “Pyrex” sub-category of the Accessories section of our site.
Finally, if the liquid seems to rise when you take a puff, the origin of the problem may be a bad way of vaping. Unlike the traditional cigarette, an electronic cigarette involves a gentle pull. The rise of liquid can also come from a defective or too worn resistance. This consumable having a limited lifespan, requires that it be changed regularly. To repair your clearomiser, we offer many resistances adapted to each type of material.
MY CLEAROMISER SEEMS TO SPIN IN A VACUUM WHEN I SCREW IT TO MY BOX, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
By dint of using your equipment, it wears out, more or less quickly. You may have already noticed that after a while, your clearomiser spins in a vacuum and is no longer firmly screwed to your battery. The thread is damaged. Do not panic, if indeed it seems complicated to repair a thread, solutions exist but you will need some notions of DIY.
Attention, this solution is temporary, the ideal in this precise case remains to change clearomiser. You can therefore provide yourself with Teflon or copper adhesive strips. Wrap them gently, in the form of filaments, around your thread and the problem is solved! At least for a while…
