    If the ohms change only when you screw on the chimney, I'd be looking for contact between it and the coil or coil tails where they connect to the screws.

    The crunching sounds like a total cleaning is in order! haha

    Yer thats what i thought at first but the wicking ring or whatever its called fully covers the screws so i dont see how with that already on there would be any difference in ohms....surely if that was the case it should short out straight away without the chimney on or cause a notable ohm difference...... and there are no wire tails because i always just twist the wire off!

    I wonder if maybe there is something wrong or loose on the deck itself and when the chimney is screwed on then it causes it to move or torque?

    Maybe the bottom spring?

    Yes, since the the FDA Deeming regs set the 90 day period to be for introduction of new products that aren't already available on the market. After that, we have two years all existing products to be sold, maybe more before only FDA approved products can be sold. At least that's the way I read the document.

    Skipped my mind about the congestion ring being next to the vcoil. Obviously, the coil/coil tails shouldn't contact it.

    Good suggestion re the spring- it will become gunked up over time so if you've not cleaned it and the associated areas of contact in a while, that's something worth looking into.

    Am using g a tobeco clone as of now and love the flavor that it produces. Only issue is it seems to gurgle a lot. I have followed the wicking and done a good job of it. And the taste is great. Just gurgles a lot on the first draw and then becomes alright. Any help would be great

    Try covering 2 of the air holes on opposite sides with the tank sideways and blow thru a hole with the last hole facing down into a paper towel and see if any liquid comes out. Might be some condensation building up in there???

    Had anyone had any issues using the polycarbonate tank? To close the juice control, do I have to unscrew it all the way until it stops turning? Any tips on installing spaced coils without it getting distorted? Tnx

    Refilled the tank today with juice control, I guess, fully closed, than as I was reopening juice flow it leaked out of the airflow holes. Could it be #16 is bad since it tends to leak a bit out the intake airflow holes or am I doing it wrong?

    It could be #16 or You either have an o-ring missing or the juice control is not closing all the way. I would suggest taking it apart and make sure all o-rings are there.

    Can you elaborate on how to close the juice control and properly fill it... I took tank apart for initial cleaning and all parts are there. It only leaked bad once I started opening juice control not while it was fully closed and it barely lakes when juice flow is open.

    You must be losing vacuum on the tank somewhere. I got tired of mine leaking and gurgling and put them in storage for a long time before I got one out to fiddle with again.

    Next time you fill it, turn it upside down before opening the liquid control and let it sit like that for say 30 seconds or so before putting it up-rite. Just an experiment...

    Tried it and it leaked first out of drip tip while holding it upside down, not much, than it was gurgly so I blew access juice out of air holes. Better than alternative lol but still leaking.

    Are you sure that 0-ring 36 is in place?

    It looks clear right, inside part 38? That and #4 were the only orings I didn't take off for first clean.

    I'd say break it down like the exploded diagram and check that everything is where it is supposed to be. PiTA, but it's the only way to rule out missing o-rings etc...

    You don't need to take apart #13 to #24, a visual inspection of #16 & #18 will suffice for the deck parts, make sure #16 is not cut or nicked.

    Definitely take #1 to #11 apart and #26 to #38 though.
