Leaking Smileomizer???

Postby Amraann » Wed Oct 09, 2013 11:48 am

I have one smileo that just wants to leak.

I have let it sit and wiped it for several days. (thinking maybe I over filled it)

But I doubt I over filled it that much. What could this be and is there a fix?

It could be that the center wicking tube has a hole in it (possibly a burn-thru hole) or has come undone at the bottom where it seals to the bottom of the unit.

If it is not damaged in the above mentioned manor, then a cleaning might fix it. Soak it for 15-20 minutes in near-boiling water and then rinse thoroughly using the "Turkey Baster" method. Spin dry or air-dry over night, and fill about 3/4. Check for continued leaking. If it still leaks, it's a goner.... :(

Hope this helps,

Happy Vaping!!
