Troubleshooting Your Dry Herb Vaporizer Problems
While dry herb vape pens such as the Arizer Solo are very popular and produce amazing results, that doesn't mean that they are always a problem free device. From time to time, you may run into a problem and knowing what to try to fix it could make all the difference between having to make another expensive purchase and getting several years more life out of your device.
Here are some simple solutions for tackling some of the most common dry herb vaporizer problems.
- If your battery doesn't seem to be functioning, the first thing to check is whether or not you have actually switched your device on. Yes, that sounds ridiculous, however you'd be surprised by the number of people who thought that they'd switched their device on but then eventually realised that they hadn't pressed the power button enough times or even too many times, accidentally turning the battery off rather than on.
- If this fails to correct the problem, you may have accidentally screwed the battery into the power cable too tightly, causing the connector pin to be pushed down too much. Luckily, you can fix this easily by using a dab tool. Wedge the tool between the top pin of the battery and its outer edge and push the pin up using the tool as a kind of lever. Make sure it is evenly pulled up on every side, spinning the battery round while holding the tool firmly in place. You can stop this problem from occurring in the first place by always taking great care when connecting the battery to its charger or heating chamber.
- One reason why the battery may no longer be functioning is because it may have died of old age. While most modern vape pen batteries are high quality, they won't last forever, and eventually will require replacement. If you haven't had your device very long, it's possible you may have short circuited the battery by accidentally connecting a metallic object with the heating chamber.
- If you have determined that the problem doesn't lie with the battery, it could be a heating chamber problem. While this could be a more tricky fix, it is still possible so don't invest in a new model just yet before you try this remedy. Sometimes the chamber's heating coils become pulled away from their connecting pins, and this stops the electrical current from flowing from the battery to the coil in order to heat it. You can fix this by nudging the coil back on the connecting pin. You can do this by using a paper clip or toothpick to nudge the coils gently onto the connectors and pushing it down. By placing the toothpick or paper clip in the coil's centre and nudging it very slightly in different directions, this is more easily accomplished. Always ensure you aren't too rough however, as your heating chamber is fragile and easily damaged or broken. By gently cleaning your device regularly, you have the best chance of keeping it functional for a long time.
