    Default I was excited.. and then..

    So I purchased a REO from someone on the forum and was excited to join the ranks.

    How ever aside from receiving an INSANELY dirty REO this little problem also presented itself when I removed the door and took a look inside

    So uh... how do I repair this?

    If you feel comfortable repairing it yourself, you can get a rebuild kit....

    or...

    send it in to Rob for repair.


    ETA - There is a video on the page I linked that shows the repair process. Watch it before you decide if you want to tackle the repair yourself.

    you're gonna need a rebuild kit, or you can send it in to rob and he'll get you setup.

    Sorry for the let down, they should have mentioned this in the ad.

    If you don't see a contact point when you press the button there is a problem.

    This might be parts to a rebuild kit though.

    My opinion is you need to send it to Robert the owner and maker of the REO and have it checked out and fixed.

    That looks like the center post in the connector has snapped and the firing contact is off.

    You could try yourself with a rebuild kit, but I recommend a trip to Robert.

    Include your name and address and the problem. Remove any juice from the bottle.

    I just bought a rebuild kit. I'll send it off to Rob if I feel the need. Would have been great to have known there was an issue because I just got a package from Rob today -_-

    I do hope if the add showed a working Reo and u didn't get it as such you leave negative feedback. Just be sure that's the case . Good luck with it all.

    GREAT!! That's the way it should be. But....it's too bad you're not able to vape it out of the box. Oh, well.....

    Is it just me, or does anyone else find it unethical and immoral to sell something that isn't working and not mention it? And that's aside from the overall condition it was sent to you in (insanely dirty). I'm so very sorry this person took advantage of your good natured trust.
