    What's wrong with it (As far as what is it doing when you try to fire it?).

    You probably don't want to ask me.....I tried taking mine apart because it wasn't firing correctly. I ended up ruining the whole thing. I tried for 30 minutes to take the top of it off, but it wouldn't budge.....
    What's wrong with yours?

    The right hand adjust button fell off inside the case, and the fire button isn't clicking. The poor thing is dead. I'm wondering if there's a place to buy the electrical stuff to repair it. The case is heavy stainless steel, without a mark on it. It seems a shame to just throw it out...

    I can't help you with that issue. I tried to take the top off my zmax and the fire button came out. Tried to put it back in and it wouldn't stay. To the trash it went. The only issue I had with my vamo was the firing pin issue but I replaced the o ring and it has been working fine every since. Good luck to ya and hope you can get it fixed!

    I watched a video of a guy taking his apart. He took it apart and put it back together in 8 minutes. I spent 30 minutes trying to get the top off of mine before I got real aggressive with it and ended up shattering the screen and scratching it really bad. Never did get it apart.....it now sits in my drawer.....that was when I bought my provari.

    Could be a pretty easy fix, once it's apart.. Probably wouldn't be too bad to get apart, but I saw the before and after of Jake's, so who knows.. If you were closer, I would offer to take a look at it

    I saw a video on YouTube about how to take it apart, and I tried my best to get the top apart. No luck. I succeeded in scratching it up, in spite of wrapping it in a towel first. I did get the section right below the buttons apart, and saw that the circuit board was a bit twisted. I twisted it back, and IT WORKS! I'm still missing the right hand (+) button, but I can work around that. I can't change back to voltage, but I leave it on wattage all the time any way. To change the level, I just push the button down until I get there. I can't check the resistance of my Nova, but I have a meter for that. So I guess I just use my crippled VAMO until I can afford a new one. I can live with it! LOL

    Mine wasn't that easy. I put a rag around it and tried for 30 minutes to get it off. I tried pliers, vice-grip, and it still wouldn't budge.
