    Is your airflow open when you tighten it up? Sometimes the hole gets nudged around and then the pressure will flood it every time.

    How good is your eye sight? When you tighten it up, you can see when the glass touches the silicone seal base...no more than that....

    I always make sure the air holes are closed after a few too many nudges and floods when i first got it. my eye sights pretty good think i may be trying to tighten it up a little too much since how its set now its sat snug on the silicone seal......noobie vaper here. thankyou for the reply

    Welcome, new vaper. As a previous poster has said, those Aspires need ultra- careful assembly.

    Welcome niccylei to ECF. Make sure you tighten down the Aspire Nautilus below the air-holes. When I first started with the Aspire Nautilus I was tightening by the tank....I noticed I was actually loosening up the coil and getting the gurgling and leaking.
    Good Luck to You...Happy Vaping!!!

    Are you saying the airflow is closed when you tighten up the base into the glass?

    Tighten down using the base and keep the airflow hole open. Hand tighten the atomiser head every time you refill. (might need a little loo/kitchen roll for your fingers)

    It could also be that the positive pin on the bottom of the tank is being pushed in to far by the pin on the Vamo and pushing the coil head upward a bit farther than it wants to go. Many mods offer adjustment for this, but the Vamo does not. But I do have two Nautilus tanks that I used to use with a Vamo and don't have any flooding issues. It could just be that your voltage is too low.

    yes the airflow i always keep closed when im putting it back together after cleaning etc, followed advice from a long time vaper. They claimed the flooding was because i was reassembling with the air flow holes open. took it back to the shop today along with my vamo the guy there changed some settings on the vamo its been working nicely since. i will follow all advice given and hope i have no more issues. thank you for all advice.
