I only use "light" juices in my tank devices, so I am pretty sure the juice is not the problem that I am experiencing.
Sammy: I have not cleaned the C attys yet. I was a cleaning fool though on my cone attys. I had seen your post on how to clean the C's a while back. But the reason I went to the C was because I was tired of cleaning attys. I figured if I cold get 3 or 4 days out of an atty, I would would just toss and replace.
I used to flop down $5 a day for a pack of cigs with no problem, but it irritates me to no end to have to spend five bucks a day on an atty. Maybe I just need to improve my mindset on that! It would be nice to get some mileage out of these new attys. I'll keep working at it.
I set one aside yesterday that I thought was dead. I tried it for the heck of it this morning and it started gradually firing (could hear a subtle hissing). So I dry burned it a short while and I'll be darned if it didn't come back to life. I am getting a nice toot off of it. Maybe it was flooded?
Sammy, when you mention that you boiled the atty, do you mean that you literally boiled it?
